Happy birthday to Football great and actor, Rosey Grier.  Fun fact about Rosey Grier:  in addition to making over 70 appearances on TV shows in the 1960s and 1970s, Rosey Grier served as a bodyguard to Robert F. Kennedy.  He was protecting Ethel Kennedy the night Robert was assassinated.  Though he was not able to save Robert F. Kennedy’s life, he was able to subdue the gun from the shooter Sirhan Sirhan.  Don’t say you never learn useless trivia on this site!  🙂

Happy 79th birthday to Dame Elizabeth Taylor who celebrates birthday number 79 today, February 27, 2011.  A very funny story goes along with this autograph but I’ll save it for my autobiography.  Just know that a part of the story involves an in-person encounter with Michael Jackson.

Happy Birthday, John Williams

Guess what James Dean and composer John Williams have in common?  They both turn 79 years old on February 8, 2011.  John Williams’ scores for the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films are nothing short of brilliance.  I can’t imagine seeing those movies without the tension and release that John Williams so carefully orchestrated with his scores!  Happy birthday John! Also celebrating birthdays today are the late actors Gary Coleman, Jack Lemmon and Lana Turner.  Writer Jules Verne was also born on this day, who’d be celebrating number 183 today.
