Today is an interesting day. 05-05-05. It will never happen again, at least not until May 5, 3005. It remains to be seen if the world makes it that far. I guess this happens once per year, really (for instance, last year we had 04-04-04) but still, it’s a pretty rare occasion when all the numbers match up. Oh, and another thing, today is also known as the Robot’s birthday. 34 years ago today marks my arrival into the world. For those of you who care, I share a birthday with Ann B. Davis, also known as Alice from the Brady Bunch. Tina Yothers, she of “Family Ties” was also born on May 5th. NBC news anchor Brian Williams is also one of my birthday brothers. The list goes on – Karl Marx, Billy Idol, baseball players Keith Ginter, Charles Nagy and Mike Redmond.

And if you scroll down this page just a little, you’ll see I also share a birthday with a large, red-bay colt, out of the TB mare Ocean Commotion by Tusami Slew and by Ideal. This, apparantly, is Patti Lacourse’s 2nd foal by Ideal. Isn’t that special?
