# CCLXXVII…”Break My Stride”…

The odd, one-hit wonder that is today’s title is due to the fact that the singer of the track, Mr. Matthew Wilder, created it in 1984 (the year fellow twin Mary Lou Retton {1968} won the Gold Medal in the Olympics) and was born on this date in 1953.  The evil earworm is now stuck in my head because it truly relates to me on a personal level.

Expanding that point, there really is no one (excluding myself) that can break my stride when it relates to my creation of this blog three years ago…I’ve had good times and bad times, highs (LOL) and lows, like anyone else, but I have kept up with it and, in response to more recent feedback received, I know that this is my calling.  Whether or not it will expand further in the future remains to be seen…

Moving on to prevent further embarrassment, today would have been the birthday of long-time veteran actor Ernest Borgnine (1917-2012), late evangelist Oral Roberts (1918-2009), The Amazing Spider-Man artist John Romita, Sr. (1930), singer Ray Stevens (1939) and “Sweet Caroline” singer (sorry, Red Sox fan, you know) Neil Diamond was born in 1941.

Singer Aaron Neville of The Neville Brothers was born in 1941, late actress Sharon Tate, who was married to Roman Polanski (who supposedly had an affair with another birthday twin, actress Nastassja Kinski (1961)), was born in 1943 {1943-1969}, late comedy genius John Belushi (1949-1982), and Russian comedian Yakov Smirnoff joined us in 1951.

Jools Holland, the singer of the 80s band Squeeze, was born in 1958, wrestling journalist/sometime performer Vince Russo was born in 1961; late ECW/WCW wrestling superstar (I call him that because of his awesome feuds with Masato Tanaka in ECW) Mike Awesome (1965-2007), actor/voice over icon Phil LaMarr (1967); “Shaggy” from the recent Scooby-Doo movies, Matthew Lillard, was born in 1970, and actress Tatyana Ali from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air turns 36 today (1979).

This edition from the left will self-destruct in five seconds…
