    So maybe a thread that celebrates the birthdays of those gone by but are still significant ...

    today besides being challenger explosion day 1-28 back 33 years ago is a day of birthdays .. I wonder who was born this day .. there are others everyday --- who we can mention right here if we want to.. just have birthday wishes for Mozart born yesterday back when... but who else? so I will look up some of today's birthday.. and post relative information, and you can too.. or comment ..

    Artur Rubinstein born 1-28 1887 so yeah and is it Artur or Arthur ??? IDK





    who do you know born today or if you are reading this tomorrow and so on, then that would be the day ..--

    In four months (May 22) I turn 49...just that much closer to 50... :eek:

    Although I happen to have the same birthday as Sir Laurence Olivier, Richard Wagner, and Paul Winfield (Captain Terrell from ST II). And at least I have my health! So it's all good. :beer:

    Happy 74th birthday to Tom Sellek :)
    And on the very same day Manfred Lehmann was born, the German voice of Gerard Depardieu, Bruce Willis and Kurt Russell. Happy Birthday!
    Also, many happy returns to mathematician and phsyicist Daniel Bernoulli, author Anton Tchechow and movie director Ernst Lubitsch who'd turn 319, 159 and 127 respectively today.

    Saturday the 26th was the 52nd anniversary of the 1967 Chicagoland blizzard (the worst one for the area) and my conception day (maybe the 27th at a stretch).

    Dad apparently couldn't get to work, so.....;):alienblush:

    Happy birthday, James Watt! (Coincidentially, this year it's 200 years since he passed away)

    Happy birthday to Felix Mendelsson-Bartholdy and Horace Greeley. Both were born only 2 years apart but I think there's hardly been a more different pair. One of them a romantic composer who idolized the past and closed his eyes against the political problems of his time (can't really blame him, though, as the majority did that, back then), the other a political activist who not only coined the famous (or infamous, from the pov of the native population) "go west, young man!" but also fought vehemently against slavery.

    I quite coincidentally just found out that today is the birthday of composer Jerry Goldsmith, who scored a number of Star Trek movies, including TMP, and also created the main theme for Voyager.

    Today is not only Burt Reynolds' birthday but also that of Thomas Edison and my compatriot Ernst Litfaß, inventor of the advertizing column.
    And though born on Feb 22nd in the Gregorian Calendar we use nowadays, in 1732 George Washington's birthplace still used the Julian calendar according to which he'd have been born on Feb. 11th. So here we have the curious case of a celebrity with 2 legal birthdays.

    Yesterday, 10th of February, would have been the birthday of late great Metallica bassist Cliff Burton.

    It's officially 'Cliff Burton day' in Alameda Country, California.

    That sounds like a good plan. Belated happy Birthday!
    Also a happy birthday to Lorne Greene and Charles Darwin. And to Gustl Bayrhammer *the* Bavarian St Peter

    Bayrhammer would be 97 today, if my math isn't off. I might have to watch an episode or two of Pumuckl today.
