# LXXXIII…The fourth family birthday this month…

Of course, the month of April wouldn’t be complete unless I mentioned the other sibling, my older brother Ed, whose birthday is today.  And, like the other three birthdays this month, I will present to you the birthday list for today.

The late, great Duke Ellington would have celebrated his birthday today (1899-1974), as would multi-talented actress Celeste Holm (1917-2012) and founder of the ’50s group, The Coasters, Mr. Carl Gardner (1928-2011) and another of the actors that you’ve seen all over the place over the years, Mr. Lane Smith (he was in “My Cousin Vinny” as the District Attorney and “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (late 90s) as Perry White) {1936-2005}.

Also on the list, the birthday of Bernie Madoff (1938), music mogul Tommy James (of …& The Shondells) (1947), Dale Earnhardt, Sr. (1951-2001), comedian/actor Jerry Seinfeld (1954), Star Trek: Voyager captain Kate Mulgrew (1955), Mr. Daniel Day-Lewis, an actor whose works are legendary, was born in 1957, and the always beautiful actresses Michelle Pfeiffer and Eve Plumb (Jan on “The Brady Bunch”) were both born in 1958.

Rounding out the list for today are Testament bassist Greg Christian (1966), rapper Master P (1967), singer Carnie Wilson (daughter of The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson) from Wilson Phillips (1968), tennis star Andre Agassi and actress Uma Thurman (1970), and actor Sam Jones III, who played Pete Ross in “Smallville”‘s first three seasons (1979), and former Trivium drummer Travis Smith (1982).

In closing, it has been a pretty busy month for me…time to sign off for now.
