Gene Wilder, the rubbery-faced star of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and comedy classics from Mel Brooks, has died, according to his nephew and his agent. He was 83.
Wilder died Monday at his home in Stamford, Conn.,of complications from Alzheimer's disease, according to a statement from his nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, issued via Wilder's agent, David Shapira, to USA TODAY.
"It is with indescribable sadness and blues, but with spiritual gratitude for the life lived that I announce the passing of husband, parent, and universal artist Gene Wilder, at his home in Stamford, Conn.," Walker-Pearlman said in the statement.
"It is almost unbearable for us to contemplate our life without him. The cause was complications from Alzheimers Disease with which he co-existed for the last three years. The choice to keep this private was his choice, in talking with us and making a decision as a family."

It's the 1st September...No. It's 29th August..

Last month saw CBO get over 36,000 views. Because Blogger is based in the US there is an anomaly. It is only the 29th August in the UK yet Blogger stats classes it as 1st September??  So the stats for 'this month' are 30, 467 views (I'll check at Midnight BST).

On Google+ total views now stand at 3, 113, 965 which still puzzles me because I had thought CBO would hit the 3 million mark before Google+.

Weird world of the internet.
