30 March

£10 in the draw! Are you sure it isn't your Lucky Day? Well, it was lucky in 1856 when the Treaty of Paris was signed, ending the Crimean War, and in 1939, Detective Comics #27 was released, introducing Batman. Finally in 1964, Jeopardy!, hosted by Art Fleming began.

A wonderful day for famous birthdays! Anna Sewell, English author (Black Beauty), born 1820, Vincent van Gogh, Dutch-French painter and illustrator, born 1853, Warren Beatty, American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter, born 1937, Eric Clapton, English guitarist and singer-songwriter, born 1945, MC Hammer, American rapper and actor, born 1962, Tracy Chapman, American singer-songwriter and guitarist, 1964, Piers Morgan, English journalist and talk show host, born 1965 and Celine Dion, Canadian singer-songwriter, born 1968.

So many to choose from! I was thinking of dedicating the day to Piers and one of his infamous quotes such as “Most of the men that sue in Hollywood are all about 5' 2. They wake up every day, know they're tiny and feel very angry about it, so they go out and sue people.”  Or "I never realised how endlessly entertaining Twitter would turn out to be. Oh, the joy when I realised you could tweet Manchester United stars personally, ridiculing them for everything from their dodgy haircuts to offensive swimwear. And even more delicious when they began firing back like enraged Rambos on acid."

But instead we are going with Tracy Chapman!

“We all must live our lives always feeling, always thinking the moment has arrived.”

“We have more media than ever and more technology in our lives. It's supposed to help us communicate, but it has the opposite effect of isolating us.”

Have a wonderful day my friend!
