The Guardian and Birthdays are a special feature of my weekend and have been over the last 20 years so I was delighted to read that Alan Bennett Playwright is 75 years old ... I recall going to the London Theatre to see Alan Bennett's Play ... 40 Years on in the 1960s when I worked full time in The Diplomatic Service at The Foreign Office in Downing St., in London England - I went with a friend and it was a most enjoyable evening at the theatre.
On top of all of this is the birthday of Candice Bergen who is 63 ... a member of the acting profession - that is to be sure! Next to this is the great actor Albert Finney who is 73 who is the star of the Film/DVD ... Murder On the Orient Express which I enjoy watching . Geraldine McEwan is 77 and wasnt it McEwan I met in a Dublin Ireland Postoffice over 12 years ago ... it might have been a lookalike but it certainly looked like her that I walked past in 1994!
However Glenda Jackson is 73 and is described as a former actor and Labour MP.
Bono singer is 49 and Donovan singer is 63 nd Maureen Lipman actor is 63. On top of all these celeb brithdays in The Guardian ... our Parish Priest Canon John O/Shea celebrated his birtdhay today and we all sang "Happy Birthday" but he is not giving away his age ... other than he feels 21! Great work ..
