Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any good links for UK or US famous people that can be searched and found by putting in their initials.

IE.....
JB= Joe Bloggs
ZS= Ziggy Stardust
ML= Monica Lewinsky (any ideas for her action?).
BB = Bjorn Borg

I am sure you get the idea.

Regards and thanks

Alan

I'm still working on putting my props and actions together for my Dominic list, but I have all 100 stars I need. I used the Biography section of the Internet Movie Database. (Scroll to bottom)

You can'y search for stars simply as "B.L.", but there is a way (and it's the way I used). If you were looking for BL, for example, you would click "L". This would give you a list of celebrities whose last names begin with "L". Now, you use your browser's search capabilities ("Find In This Page" for Netscape or "Find In Top Window" for Explorer), and look for ", B" (Note the importance of the comma and the space). This will highlight, one by one, stars whose first names begin with "B" on that "L" list. Just a quick search of this way yielded:

Bert Lahr (cowardly lion in "Wizard of Oz")
Burt Lancaster
Brandon Lee
Bruce Lee
Bela Lugosi

OK, it yielded many more, but these are the names I can INSTANTLY recognize off the top of my head, and that's ultimately what you want in the Dominic System.

I hope this helps. If it does, you can thank me by tracking down a 2nd copy of "How to Develop a Perfect Memory" by Dominic O'Brien, or letting me have yours when you're through with it. Smile

Hi Scott,
Thats a great search method that I would never have though of alone and for that... I thank you.
I have started and hope it will be sucessful but notice the large amounts of people I have never heard of, maybe they are better known in the US.
I will try to locate a copy of DoB book for you and if I ever sell mine, I will offer it to you first.... hows that?

Regards Alan
