Anyway.....today is my birthday---and this day is also historically significant
But there's 3 of them in my family

Me---June 6---D-Day
My oldest sister---Dec 7---Pearl Harbour
My youngest sister---March 15---ides of March--bad day for ole Julius

This may be fluffy---but what happened on yours?

I remember a comic once talkin----he said that Irish people think they're special cuz their kids are often born around Christmas---turns out that the reason is too much drunken sex at St Paddy's day is the reason :)

    I share a birthday with Gandhi and Kelly Ripa. In fact, Kelly and I were born on the same exact day.

    I don't recall anything of note happening that day.

    That is one day too early.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
