Winter is Coming!

If you’ve been following “The Game of Thrones” the last two seasons, you’re probably a fan of actor Peter Dinklage who plays Tyrion. Mr. Dinklage was born today in 1969. He would probably remind us that “a Lannister pays his debts”.

We have lots of birthdays today.

–          In sports; coaching legend Vince Lombardi (1913), quarterback Joe Montana (1956), and Kentucky basketball stalwart Chuck Hayes (1983) were all born today.

–          Film director Michael Cacoyannis was born today in 1922. Mr. Cacoyannis gave us the spirited and beautiful film, “Zorba the Greek”.

–          Willie Wonka’s alter ego, actor Gene Wilder was born today in 1933. “The tension is unbearable…I hope it lasts!”

–          West Coast beatnik drummer Shelly Manne was born today in 1920. His night club in Los Angeles was of course named “The Manne-Hole”.
