Colleen McCullough, Australian author of The Thorn Birds, dies
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Australian author Colleen McCullough, whose 1977 best-selling novel The Thorn Birds became a smash hit television miniseries, has died at the age of 77. McCullough turned to writing after working for more than a decade as a neuroscientist in Australia, Britain and the United States and scored almost immediate success with The Thorn Birds, a family drama set on a sheep station in the Australian outback. The paperback rights for The Thorn Birds sold for a then record $1.9 million and was made into one of the most watched miniseries of all time, starring Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward. McCullough died in hospital on Norfolk Island on Thursday after a string of health problems, publisher HarperCollins Australia said in a statement.

Jack Nicholson: The complete hookup history
guyism - almost 5 years
Last week we took a look at one of the most prolific celebrity womanizers in Leonardo DiCaprio. This week we continue our series with a man who has allegedly hooked up with at least as many famous women as Leo: Jack Nicholson. Of course the difference here is that Jack just turned 75 on Sunday while Leo is half that age. That being said, it’s still a rather impressive list. Jack also gets points for scoring with women many, many years younger than him (noted below). NOTE: In the interest of brevity, we’ll just list all his ladies up to his longest romance: Anjelica Huston. It’s also been reported that Jack has nailed over 2,000 women, but today we’re just going to focus on the famous ones. Previous hookup histories on Guyism. Pre-Anjelica Sandra Knight (1958-1968), Mimi Machu (1967-1971), Susan Anspach (1969-1971), Rita Moreno (1970), Candice Bergen (1971), Michelle Phillips (1971-1972). Anjelica Huston (1973-1989) Jack and Anjelica were an item for 16 years, but as yo ...
