Indeed, also with Peter Seiffert, Margaret Marshall, and with those who passed, including Giuseppe Danise (Bidu Sayao's husband) and conductor Eduardo Mata, and many others both born and died on this date.

My sincere thanks to all for your kind words. My pal maestrob let the cat out of the bag, the rascal! :D

I share the January 4 date with John, although my arrival on the scene was 1931 !

I'm very fortunate to be healthy after all these years and able to function like a much younger person, all attributed to the good fortune of having outstanding genes, which is the only explanation that's plausible. :lol:

HOPE ALL OF YOU HAVE A HEALTHY 2013 !!
