famous birthdays

According to the "Internets," Daniel shares his birthday with such celebs as Claudia Schiffer, Sean Connery, Elvis Costello, Tim Burton, Regis Philbin and Leonard Bernstein.

My husband was born on the same day as Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, Emily Post, Teddy Roosevelt and John Cleese, to name a few.

My fellow Capricorns are not quite so exciting: Kate Moss, Sade, Ronnie Milsap, Harry Carey and Ethel Merman.

I think Daniel has the coolest list, and Steve's is pretty good, too! So ... who shares your birthday?

My list includes Puccini, Lady Bird Johnson, Diane Sawyer, and Ralph Fiennes! Not bad. :)

I share a birthday with JS Bach. That doesn't make my dream "all Bach" wedding on an accoustic guitar seem so crazy now!

I like your new template!

I share a birthday (August 1) with Herman Melville, Dom DeLuise, and Coolio, among others.

Rebecca shares with Charles Goodyear, Andrew Johnson, Mary Tyler Moore, Jon Voight, Ted Danson, Jude Law, and someone called Pimp C!

Well my birthday is a dumb day...the only name I recognized was Macaulay Culkin. How sad is that?! Everyone was born a day early on Daniel's b-day instead.

Like Ellen, I also share mine with a famous composer, Richard Wagner!
Plus, Mary shares her's with Cesar Franck (Dec 10)!

So three of us sisters have composer's birthdays!
