New Thing #5--Happy Birthday to YOU!

The inspiration for today's New Thing came when I was laying in bed listening to the radio the other morning. The DJ was reading a list of celebrity birthdays for the day. That announcement moved me to send a birthday card to a celebrity.

Thanks to the Internet, finding a list of famous people who have birthdays in January was easy. I wanted to allow about a week for mail time, so I decided to send my card to Robin Zander from the band Cheap Trick. His birthday is January 23rd. I've enjoyed their music ever since they started recording in the late '70s, and it's one of the few bands I've seen in multiple decades (in 1978 with REO Speedwagon at the Checkerdome ) and almost 30 years later (in 2006 at Live on the Levee).

I found the address for his management company and sent the card off. Hopefully he'll receive it.

  1. That's very nice of you. I'm sure he'll appreciate the card! From what I hear, Robin's a really nice guy.
