Birthday time (again)

Isn't the internet wonderful!  Log on to google today and there's a picture and link for Paul Cézanne, the french artist and post-impressionist painter who shares my birthday. He's a little older than me, admittedly, and has a great moustache in the picture ~ I just have a few stray eyelashes on my chin.

Anyway, it got me thinking about other people I share this birth date with.  I only knew one person who had my birthday, up until today, a friend's mother, then I found out that one of my neighbour's shares it too.  Apparently, I read in a fortune telling book I was given many moons ago (did anyone see the moon set this morning??? Jam saw it, but apparently it will be even more amazing tomorrow...) that if you have 12 people in a room at a dinner party then two will share the same birthday... Hmmm...

I share my birthday with Dolly Parton, Robert Palmer, Edgar Allan Poe, Janis Joplin, Jenson Button, to name but a few.  Who do you share your birthday with?


  1. Well..I share my birthday with the one and only Kylie Minogue! :-) How fitting...! x x

  2. Elton John and Gloria Steinem FTW!
