Born today: Elias Ashmole (1617-1692), Carolus Linnaeus (1707-1778), Franz Anton Mesmer (1737-1815), Douglas Fairbanks (1883-1939), Scatman Crothers (1910-1986), Rosemary Clooney (1928-2002), Nigel Davenport (1928), Joan Collins (1933), Robert Moog (1934), John Newcombe (1944), Luka Bloom (1955), Jimmy McShane (1957-1995) and, if my memory serves me, the lovely and talented Mr. Terry Hall's older son, Felix, is turning 22 today. Somewhere here abouts, anyway. How I know that is not nearly as stalkerish as it sounds.
It is World Turtle Day.
