Happy Birthday

Catherine II the Great

Reigned as Empress of Russia for more than three decades
The epitome of the "enlightened despot"

(sorry, couldn't resist.)

John Muir

Scottish-American environmentalist, naturalist, explorer, writer, inventor, and geologist

The spiritual father of the modern conservation movement.

Anthony Quinn

(1915 – 2001)
Mexican-American actor, painter, and writer.

He is best known for his performance in Zorba the Greek.

He showed us how to live the full catastrophe!

Elaine May

One of the funniest people alive.

Charles Grodin

The embodiment of droll.
A very funny man.
