Today is my birthday. I turn 28 years old at exactly 12:25pm on the dot (I was a very punctual newborn). I'm sure my soul is probably a couple of centuries old. I did some research and found some birth dates, marriage dates and death dates that happened on my birthday. See below.
Also, I'm taking a short hiatus to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. I'll be back next week. Hope you have a safe and happy holiday! And if you start your Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving, please buy books as presents. Support the book industry and literacy!

11-25-1946 ~ Actor Louis Calhern marries actress Marianne Stewart.
