    Over the decades I have had precisely three people (all strangers, as it happens) tell me I look like someone well known. In chronological order, the comparisons were to Lou Diamond Phillips, Rick Moranis, and Stephen King. My own opinion is that I look like the NBA coach (former player) Kevin McHale, but nobody else has ever said that to me.

    Not that this will mean anything to anyone here, but at a family reunion (the only one we have held) one of my nieces confused me with one of my cousins, and I would say I look more like that cousin than I look like my brother.

    In my earlier years, a Swedish blond version of JFK whose Inauguration my future bride was invited to attend. She danced with John, Robert and Ted at the Inauguration Ball; appreciated Robert's family values and said he danced best).

    People (mostly women!) used to say I looked like the Australian actor Bryan Brown - sometimes they added "only better looking" - which wasn't too bad - in my younger days. They certainly wouldn't say it now - and who cares.

    There's a bloke in Canberra who is the absolute spitting image of of Mark Woodford, the former Australian tennis player - absolute spitting image. It's unbelievable.

    When I was 14 I was told I looked like Elizabeth Taylor who was 13 at the time. When I was 17 I was told I looked like Joan Crawford. When I was 24 I was told I looked like Jane Russell. No...they were not guys making a hit on me! One was a girl classmate.
