HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUILPUSHA!

The sun's trying to come out here in N. Cornwall so I hope it's doing so with you too and maybe you can get out on the moor or the coast (in the nearest pub naturally) or otherwise enjoy the last knockings of the Indian Summer today

That's an impressive list too - tons of 'famous' people in there but especially Mark Rothko and William Faulkner (a seminal author of my youth with his Sumerian trilogy standing out)

Happy birthday! :lol:

Felicity Kendal was yummy and was once voted as having the sexiest bottom (I think) :lol:

It's a bit of a co-incidence that Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones both have birthdays on the same day.

She was a 'Rear of the Year' yes :lol:

That was back when she was doing the Good Life I think (all that digging and leading goats around possibly). Agneta Falkskog from ABBA also 'won' the title too - that was down to overworked spandex possibly... :P
