The four-time Grammy award winner was in Kildare this week as part of her exhibition tour as she looks to auction items to raise funds for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre. The collection includes many items from her impressive career. Newton-John (70) was diagnosed cancer last year for the third time and has spoken on a number of occasions about her use of medicinal cannabis to manage the pain. Speaking at the exhibition launch at the Newbridge silverware museum today, she said that plant medicine has been "a huge part" of her journey and she would encourage those diagnosed to explore every treatment possible. "I've had three bouts with cancer. I'm living with it well and I think I'm going to see an end of it and that's my dream - that it will be gone and I'll be able to tell everybody then exactly what I've done," Newton-John said. "I've mixed traditional medicine and herbal medicine and homeopathic medicine. The choices of your treatment - that's a very … [Read more...] about ‘I think I’m going to see end of my cancer, that’s my dream’
A COUPLE who had been married for 71 years died just hours apart. Herbert DeLaigle, 94, died on Friday morning at 2.20am in Augusta, Georiga, while his beloved wife Frances, 88, died just 12 hours later. The couple had a lifelong romance after they first saw each other in a café in Waynesboro, when Herbert was 22 and Frances was just 16. Speaking to WRDW, an affiliate of CBS, in June 2018 Herbert said of their romance: "Frances worked at a little cafe we had in Waynesboro named White Way Café. "I kept seeing her going in and out, in and out and I had my eyes set on her. And then I finally got up the nerve to ask her if she would go out with me sometime." They had their first date going to the movies and Herbert popped the all-important question one year later. He said: "I asked her will she have me as her husband and she said, of course.” Although despite their love the wedding almost never happened, as Frances said “he was always late”.

To some it only feels like yesterday, while many were not even born back then. It was the decade of Tony Blair’s beaming smile, the Blur and Oasis battle, and a time when football ‘came home’. So put on that denim shirt, stick Oasis on the stereo and take a trip down memory lane with our list of 90 things you'll remember if you lived in Hull in the 90s. 1) The grand opening of Princes Quay Shopping Centre in March 1991. Shoppers queued to get a look at it. 2) John Prescott bopping to 'Things Can Only Get Better' as Labour win the 1997 election. 3) Watching your shares go higher and higher after Kingston Communications was listed on the stock exchange in 1999.

This is a man’s world. The airside tarmac, as Air Force One touched down in Shannon, was dotted in men. In a makeshift meeting room at Shannon Airport, US president Donald Trump and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar were flanked by their requisite back-up teams.In the Irish corner was Mr Varadkar’s chief of staff, Brian Murphy; our most senior Brexit official, John Callinan; special US envoy John Deasy; and Ireland’s ambassador to America, Daniel Mulhall. In the American corner was Mr Trump’s own chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, national security adviser, John Bolton; and secretary of the US Treasury, Steve Mnuchin. Big jobs. Meanwhile, the documentation of Melania’s catwalk across the British Isles was in full swing; her to-die-for coat, her sartorial nod to Princess Diana and some sort of garment that was made from a fabric that apparently had red buses on it. When all the world’s a stage and the men get the big parts and the women are reduced to decorative … [Read more...] about I really don’t care what Melania wears — do you?
