Vault 687 in Gringotts Wizarding Bank belongs to the Potter family. It appears to be of moderate depth and deeper underground than the vault of the Weasley family, but not as deep as Vault 713. It is accessible only by a cart operated by one of the bank's goblin employees, and by using a small gold key.

The 696th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is attributed to Jack Bailey, an announcer, pitchman, actor, musician and once the voice of Goofy in old Donald Duck cartoons.

He actually has two stars on the Walk of Fame, one for his work on TV and another for his work on Radio.

Sorry to repeat a bit, but I am finding these Van Gogh letters so very fascinating (just google Van Gogh letters). Here is an excerpt from 697:

One day you’ll also see the portrait of me that I’m sending to Gauguin, because he’ll keep it, I hope.
It’s all ashy against pale Veronese (no yellow). The clothing is that brown jacket trimmed with blue, but in which I’ve exaggerated the brown into purple, and the width of the blue trim.
The head is modelled in light-coloured thick impasto against a light-coloured background with almost no shadows. But I’ve slightly slanted the eyes in the Japanese manner. Write to me soon, and the best of luck. How happy old Gauguin will be!
