    To be honest Paxton, I never heard of her until now, and certainly had no idea about her connection with Stanley Kubrick.

    After spending a little more time going through a section of the Honours list, I was gobsmacked at some of the awards given out. I certainly don't mean to disrespect any of the services some of these people provide, but I find it a bit bizarre that they are given awards for them, such as the three examples I mentioned above and another one I just came across......Dr. Brian CROSSLEY - For services to the Craft of Chair Caning.

              I don’t really like the Honours system but both Sheila and Lesley deserve theirs. 2 great actresses.
