Happy birthday to whole universe! And me! (Two days late)

Tom Raworth has just reminded me that, according to Archbishop James Ussher, I share my birthday with Heaven and Earth, created on 23 October 4004 BC.

Other people whose birthdays coincide with mine and the entire caboodle include Diana Dors, ‘Weird’ Al Jankovic and Ned Rorem. For a complete list (and further proof that astrology is a distinctly inexact, er, science) click here.

    IF I understood that correct, happy birthday Charles!

  2. Thank you!(And I think I’ve clarified the post a little…)

  3. Dale says:

    So God was busy with the universe and created you two days later? Cool! Happy Birthday.

  4. It was actually the same day, Dale, just 5,957 years later. He must have been distracted.

  5. Tom says:

    And later still, Many Happy Returns, Charles. I think Ussher had it as the night of 22nd…. I was giving Light a little time

  6. And I took advantage, Tom. Good to see you here.
