    Ok all:

    A lot of people wonder why we have a leap year & who's responsible. The link below will explain it.

    But before THAT, I think we should tip our hats to those who only have a birthday every 4 years. Four people come to mind straight away, Actor Dennis Farina (TV's "Law & Order, 64 today). Rapper Ja Rule (32 today). Actress Dinah Shore (Died in 1994, would have been 92 today)..........& the most FAMOUS one of all, Gioacchino Rossini, born in 1792.........What do you MEAN you've never heard of him???....Ok, you've DEFINITELY heard of his musical compostion though, it's more commonly known as the theme music to "The Lone Ranger"


    William Tell Overture
