Happy birthday.


I couldn't find anything for may 28 1980, so here is an earlier date:

585 BC – A solar eclipse occurs, as predicted by Greek philosopher and scientist Thales, while Alyattes is battling Cyaxares in the Battle of the Eclipse, leading to a truce. This is one of the cardinal dates from which other dates can be calculated.

June 29...Hmmm. I looked on Wikipedia and, though the list was long, I didn't see anything that just blew me away. I do have one thing that happened on my birthday, 27 years earlier..... my dad was born.

16th August

I saw the long list on wikipedia, nothing found interesting.

But here's something I found on TLC website. smile.gif

Leos born on August 16 are dedicated, disciplined individuals with a strong sense of personal destiny. While they absorb and listen to the criticism of others, it rarely causes them to change their game plan. They are concerned with their personal image. They often create a persona for themselves that is very much at odds with their true selves.

Friends and Lovers
Socially, August 16 individuals are very much in demand, and many of their associations thrive in social settings. They are extremely passionate. They possess great charm and considerable sex appeal, and when they fall in love it is a love that will last forever.

Children and Family
August 16 natives often separate emotionally from their family at quite an early age. They may be surprised by their genuine talent for parenthood. They are able to balance discipline with liberalness, letting their youngsters know how much they are loved.
Health
These folks are dedicated to keeping themselves fit and in good health. They love to exercise and are usually involved in some sort of cross-training program. They maintain a careful balance in their nutrition.

Career and Finances
August 16 natives have strong career ambitions. They have solid leadership ability and do not thrive in positions of subservience. Money plays a large part in their lives. They want to be more than just financially secure -- they want enough money to exercise complete control over their destiny.

Dreams and Goals
It isn't characteristic for August 16 people to believe in luck -- good, bad, or otherwise. They believe in making their own luck. They have the rare ability to see details as well as the big picture -- one of the keys to their success.


--------------------
Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.
