2016 is off to a rough start it seems...

I started this year off with a cold that turned into the flu and bronchitis. Yay me! I still have a lingering cough that acts up when I lay down in bed.
I usually take a tablespoon of honey before bed to coat my throat with it. It helps considerably.

Then there are the celebrity deaths that are taking place in huge numbers due to cancer. There are two that impacted me because I just love their music and acting.

David Bowie passed of cancer in the beginning of the month. My niece sent me a text in all capitals asking me why and how. We love to watch the movie Labyrinth with him as Jareth the Goblin King. His music is amazing as well.

Alan Rickman is another of my favourites. I loved him as the Sherriff of Nottingham in the movie "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" with Kevin Costner as Robin Hood. Then he was my favourite as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies. Those are the only movies I have seen him in to be honest, but have heard him reciting poetry on Audible a few times.

Here's to hoping for some good things to come! How is everyone doing?

This year seems to have started with the death of some celebrities. Hope you have recovered from your cough.

I hope your 2016 improves soon, as well as hoping we stop losing our cultural icons at such an alarming rate.

Hope you feel better soon. I'm afraid I was unaware of these celebrities until they died. I don't pay much attention to popular culture.
