# LXXII…My 30th post on the 30th…

On this fitting day of the month, the penultimate day of March 2013, I figured that it would be a really short post, seeing as how I’ve written a lot on here this month…that, and the fact that people are probably getting annoyed with any post over a few hundred words.

Today’s date, which also happens to be the anniversary of the shooting of former President Ronald Reagan in 1981 (an event which, being ten years old at the time, I remember well), starts out with the birthday of Vincent van Gogh, the Dutch painter, who was born in 1853.

Also celebrating birthdays today are:  former game show host (Hollywood Squares) Peter Marshall turns 86 today, John Astin, who (for those that don’t know) played Gomez Addams on “The Addams Family” turns 82 today, Warren Beatty turns 75 today.

I would also like to mention the 68th birthday of one of the greatest guitar player to walk the Earth…Mr. Eric Clapton.  I just caught his performance at The  Concert for Sandy Relief and, for a man of his experience, was captivated to the point of amazement.  The man is still so humble but can rock your socks off with his skills at his age.

Finishing today’s list are the following mentions; voice actor (The Brain from Animaniacs and Pinky and The Brain) Maurice LaMarche (1958), MC Hammer (1962), Tracy Chapman (“Fast Car” and “Give Me One Reason”) born in 1964, Celine Dion celebrates her 44th birthday, and current San Jose Sharks defensement Marc-Edouard Vlasic turns 26 today.

With the last post of the month of March out of the way, now I can look forward to my favorite month of the year, April.  Judging from preliminary scans of my own personal “calendar” (the one in my head), it will definitely be one of the best months for me…lots of stuff to cover, including many personal events upcoming that are very important to me as a parent and a human being.
