Let's raise a glass to Peter Falk who died today after suffering from Alzheimers. Cheesy cop show, but an iconic actor! wine. And just one more thing...

I'm with you there Annobel - used to love his programme. Alzheimer's is awful having seen my mother-in-law suffering many years ago so much sympathy to his family.

Apologies. You'd think I could have got the spelling right. It should be COLUMBO. Thank you for not correcting me! Lots of obits overnight. The New York Times one is very extensive, but then he was a New Yorker.

I seem to remember that he used to mention Mrs Columbo but you never saw her.

He always had a cigar and a very dirty raincoat too! RIP wine

No Mrs Columbo.....but sometimes a wonderful Bassett Hound. Heres to many wet Sunday afternoons watching him! wine

He's on right now on ITV3 but conflicts with Federer and Serena Williams.

Annobel When was Federer playing Serena Williams? I still watch episodes of Columbo that I know I have already seen about ten times. A fun series and a good guy.

Ha! I wonder who would win that contest! Both on at the same time on different channels! smile
