The best I can do is offer suggestions, because I'm not sure who you'd know, and who you wouldn't.

OD=Olivia D'Abo, Olivia de Havilland, Oscar de la Hoya, Oscar del la Renta, Olympia Dukakis
OE=Since this is 05, how about Peter Brook? (05 is his racing car)
CG=Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Crystal Gayle, Cripin Glover, Charles Grodin
CN=CNN reporter? Conrad Nagel, Fred "Curly" Neal (Harlem Globetrotters), Chuck Norris
EO=Michael Jackson (Captain EO), Ed O'Neil (Al in "Married With Children"),
EG=Humpty Dumpty (EGG), Eva Gabor, Estelle Getty (Sophia on "Golden Girls"), Elian Gonzalez (All over CNN, deported to Cuba at gunpoint), Edward Gorey (cartoonist, ever see the opening to "Mystery!"?), Eydie Gorme, Elliot Gould, Elizabeth Gracen, Erin Gray
SN=Shinko Nagisa, Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), St. Nicholas, Stevie Nicks
OG=This is 07, making James Bond the obvious choice
GA=Ginger Lynn Allen, Gracie Allen,
GC=George Clooney, Glenn Close,
GN=Greg Norman (golfer)
NC=Naomi Cambell, Neville Chamberlain, Nadia Comaneci,
NH=Nigel Hawthorne ("Yes, Minister")

Sorry, I don't have anything right now for "HD" and "NO".

I hope this helps, though!

Hi all, The link Dorbolo kindly provided is excellant for anyone looking for "celebs", its very well laid out and if one uses the clever Scott Cram search method, its vey guick indeed.
"Irony can sometimes be very ironic" and its ironic I clicked onto this wonderfull link when I had only two names left to find.

Still I am almost done now and only need HA, it may end up being Herb Albert although I am not so familiar with him or his music.


Humpty Dumpty was a "cracking" HD, I have had Dominics book for about 5 days now and feel that childhood storybook charachters are exeallant as they are so ingrained in the deep memory that when we retrieve them , we automatically access the deepest parts of our memory which is very good exercise indeed.
I intend to write up a longish post on the differance its made to me in a very short time.
I have much more vivid dreams due to all the imigary done during the day.. is one example.

I have also started giggelling for no apparent reason and my wife looks at me with her usual "What is he doin NOW" look... and I explain to her that I have just visualized Olive Oyl making spinache for Popeye and she just shakes her head in disbelief.

I am now finnished the list, no doubt I might need to change a few but I feel glad the first big step is over.

The HB is indeed Herb Albert and after some research I have more connections to him than I thought.
First his band called Tejehuana(SP?) meaans something to me as I have visited that mexican border town before.

His big hit called a "Taste of Honey" was always on the radio in my house when i was brought up in the 60s, and I new the tune right away without realsing who the artist was.
My father loved music and always had the radio on... so my head is full of music from all era,s.
So it just goes to show me and Herb Albert go back a long way.... even though I didnt realise it.

Regards Alan
