Welcome to our shared birthday site.

Inevitably, given a current world population of 7,182,991+ (living) people and only 365 (and a quarter) days, you're special day is shared with quite a large cohort of others. Some of them well known and some of them interesting.


In fact, on any given day, nearly twenty million people will flush with warm joy or cringe with outright embarrassment at the sound of Patty and Mildred's somewhat simple tune.


On these pages we have gathered together the good, the bad and the fascinating and written about them, a bit. We've also listed some of the major events of your day and safeguarded your future with a Horoscope. If today is your birthday then best wishes from us all, if not please peruse, amaze yourself and, please, tell your friends.

A quick sip from the trivia cup:
At the rate of about 40 painting hours per horse on the King Arthur's Carousel at Disneyland, it takes several years to refurbish all of the horses. Then the cycle starts again.







       
  • Sign:  Pisces
  • Colour:  Turquoise
  • Element:  Water
  • Stone:  Turquoise
  • Metal:   Tin
  • Planet:   Neptune

The Week of Dancers and Dreamers. The Pisces 3 period takes Dancers and Dreamers as its central image. Simply put, this period closes the Grand Cycle and represents the ending of this lifetime on earth. The great wheel has at last come full circle. Those about to leave this earthly plane feel the gravity of the earth's attraction more strongly than ever but also the inexorable pull of the world beyond. Even through pain and suffering, a range of emotions may be felt; from acceptance to expectation to excitement to joy.
