This isn't the best place for this news, but I felt I had to share.

One of my favorite TV personalities has died - Clarissa Dixon Wright. You have no idea how many times I have watched my Two Fat Ladies DVD collection. I can recite just about every episode from start to finish. A lot of my humor is derived from the two of their antics. Wright loved the history of food and it was evident in her recipes, which were mostly revivals of traditional British cuisine.

On another sad note, noted fashion designer L'wren Scott has died from apparent suicide.

In another life I lead, I kinda deal with the design industry, so this is rather significant to me. I don't know why fashion designers killing themselves has become a trend, but frankly, it needs to be stopped.


Here is a look from her last spring collection:


If anyone ever needs help and feels that there is nothing left, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: In the U.S., call 1-800-273-8255

I found out about these two deaths within minutes of each other, so, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to hide under the covers with my teddy bear.
