  1. Hey Happy belated to your lovely wife! Good on you for posting up in her honour!

    I looked up my own lovely wife’s birthday and it’s not got nearly as many cool things for it (at least, not musically). First use of insulin on a human patient would be a big one, as would Amelia Earhart flying solo from Hawaii to California. The creation of the Academy in Hollywood and the addition of the designated hitter to the American League of baseball would seem to be lesser things. And there’s a lot of war and death and nastiness so… meh, January.
