Could be anyone. It looks fairly standard with no distinguishing features that I can see.

A ton and a half dumpy bag infront of the garage door, that's a great theft deterrent :D :D

I didn't. I've just looked it up and he's well into them.
Keeping on the celebrity bird lover theme, I heard on the radio that Mike Tyson keeps pigeons. Funny old world isn't it?

Yeah, he's one of the good guys! It's easy to forget about people once they disappear from the public eye and aren't heard of again. Why can't modern celebs quiety disappear instead of being in the limelight all the time?

:cheers: And they would do variety shows etc without caring if they made themselves look silly.....Many of today's 'celebs' are far too full of their own self importance.

I reckon that's because they all have an entourage of stylists, public relations people and whatever else in tow, all telling them what they should say and do. I bet they're not allowed to do anything that is not within their public persona. The 'celebs' probably can't even take a dump in peace! :lol:
