Jim Pegram - 1936 to 2016

"I can see clearly now the rain is gone

I can see all obstacles in my way

Gone are the dark clouds that had me down

It's gonna be a bright bright sunhinin' day."

These are the words of the Jimmy Cliff song that played out at the finale of Jim Pegram's funeral which was held the Newcastle Memorial Park last Friday.

If you were to meet Eve today, you would find a tiny woman with an amazing store of memories.  Eve loves to talk, and her life story gives a taste of worlds most of us just read about in history books.

The eldest of six children Eve grew up in South Wales, in a mining village called Cymmar near Port Albert.  Her Dad, Fred, was an overman and as such commanded the respect of the village, but on Saturday night he loved to go to the local pub where he could be one of the lads, earning his drinks by playing the piano.

Who are the people in our neighbourhood?

Doctor Who, in the TV series, makes an important claim: 

The Doctor: [Pointing to frozen Abigail Pettigrew] Who's she?

Kazran Sardick: Nobody important.

The Doctor: Nobody important? Blimey, that's amazing. You know that in nine hundred years of time and space and I've never met anybody who wasn't important before.
