Oh please! John Q. Adams. Everybody knows he produced the lesser known beer to Sam Adams beer. Right?

Crimson Wife said...

Happy birthday! What does it say about me that I recognized all the historical personages but have no clue who Tab Hunter is?

I was going to ask who #3 was but luckily your first commenter answered that for me.

As the producer of Childrensbookradio, and considering I was just researching Children's authors and came accross your blog, I am glad that you featured EB White's B-day. She is truly one of the best writer's of Children's Literature of all time.

I remember seeing Yul Bryner perform the stage version of "The King and I" when I was a little girl! He seemed so big, tall and strong. And also handsome!

My brother had a tremendous fear of spiders. My mother had him watch the television version of "Charlotte's Web". To this day, my brother will not kill a spider.

Robin said...

Great idea for a list. I loved Bob from Sesame Street :).

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

I find Robert Bruce fascinating.

Okay, a president is nothing to shake a stick at.
