# CDLXXVII…Year-End Excerpt…

As we all look forward to what will hopefully be a bright New Year in 2018, I would like to present to you all this final excerpt from my first book (released, in case you’re living under a rock, in October of this year)…

# cxcvii…”Can You Hear Them, Clarice?”…

In case you’re celebrating this New Years’ Eve as your birthday, you’re in elite company, as veteran actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was born in Wales on this date in 1937.  Critically-acclaimed for his roles in such memorable classics as “Silence of the Lambs” (where the above title is from), “Meet Joe Black”, “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, “Legends of the Fall” and “Thor”, he has been a powerhouse in the industry since 1960.

Also celebrating on this laundry list of twins are/were; late “Arizona Cowboy” in Disney history, Rex Allen (1920-1999), late New Jersey-born actress Rosalind Cash (1938-1995), The Police (80’s rock band) guitarist Andy Summers (1942), late country crooner John Denver (1943-1997), talented actor Ben Kingsley (1943) and former “Animal House” co-star Tim Matheson was born in 1947.

Late disco queen Donna Summer (1948-2012), Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton (1951), actress Jane Badler {“V” 80’s TV miniseries} (1953), former “Frasier” co-star Bebe Neuwirth (1958), acting legend Val Kilmer (1959), former Mets’ hurler Rick Aguilera (1961), Anthrax (heavy metal gods) guitarist Scott Ian (1963), New Kids on the Block’s Joey McIntyre (1972), electronic guru Psy (1973) and Apocalyptica drummer Mikko Siren was born in 1975.

Happy New Year to all…and thank you for gracing me with your presence on this “busy” evening…as always…until next year…

In closing, I would like to thank my “fans” (especially the ones that have purchased my book) for the wonderful opportunities that my writing has provided me with…from writing posts on this blog to the (hopefully) inevitable run that I should be releasing another “project” at some point, to further expand my audience.  I am looking forward to a lot more outgoing pursuits (like a meet-and-greet with symphonic metal giants Kamelot and Delain, right after my birthday) and am looking to 2018 as I do with every year…expecting the worst, hoping for the best and living with what’s in between!

Until next year, my friends…may 2018 bring you all the prosperity and happiness that you have been wishing for and, as always…
