Many thanks. The national anthem was played on Radio 4 this morning, as it is on this date every year. As a died in the wool republican I guess it was bound to be that I share my birthday with the Queen. If my dear old mum had brought me into this world the day before, I'd have been born on Hitler's birthday, so I should count my blessings!
Happy Happy Birthday!!! Hope you enjoy the day!
Seems like my whole family shares their birthday's as well.
My daughter 12/31
My brother 11/22 (Day JFK was assassinated)
My fiance 12/7 (Attack on Pearl Harbor)
WK, I hope you have raised a pint to yourself, as have your pals. Morjem - wow. That is some serious synchronicity!!
I had a nice lunch yesterday with my colleagues, as one of them actually shares Hitler's birthday - she thinks her mum could have made a bit more of an effort and delivered her a day early.
I'll be going out to a fantastic Thai restaurant tomorrow night, so have made do with a couple of glasses of red wine this evening. I'll remember you when I'm dripping red curry down my shirt tomorrow and my kids are looking embarrassed as their old man shows them up yet again.
There are some good websites, such as "this day in history" where you can find all manner of weird things that happened on any given day.
