Birthdays For January 5th + National Bird Day
Is it your birthday today? Congratulations, you share the same date as two names in country music. Sun Records founder Sam Phillips is born in Florence, Alabama, in 1923. He signs and produces such acts as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, entering the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001. Also singer/songwriter Mark Nesler is born in Beaumont, Texas in 1961. He writes Tim McGraw's "Just To See You Smile," George Strait's "Living And Living Well," Josh Turner's "Time Is Love" and Keith Urban's "You Look Good In My Shirt," among others.
It's National Bird Day!!
This is a day for nature lovers, bird lovers and bird watchers to celebrate.
The organization, Born Free USA, lists it as a day to shine a spotlight on issues critical to the protection and survival of birds, both wild and captive. This organization goes on to tell us that, nearly 12 percent of the world's almost 10,000 species of birds, are in danger of extinction.
Just something to ponder as you celebrate today.
