Steve McQueen... by Spursfan on 24 March 2010 7:06am
 
...would have been 80 today!! EIGHTY !!! I can't believe it!

And this December, (on our wedding anniversary actually because it was 9th December here), it will be 30 years since John Lennon's assassination!! Would you believe it? THIRTY YEARS! My Father had died just 11 days before, too.

Where does the time go?!!

Carpe diem.

[Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace. It is popularly translated as "seize the day". Carpe means "pick, pluck, pluck off, gather", but Horace uses the word to mean "enjoy, make use of."]

I used to study Latin with Socrates.
He thought that Brazilian football offered him a better chance.
Eejit. Thats Greeks for you. :)

You are speaking Greek,and mixing the Greeks,the Latins,and the Latin-Americans.

Socrates [NB:acute accent over the o] [the footballer] played for Brazil in the 1950's,had a long Portuguese name and spoke Portuguese.
Having said that,he had certainly learned a few wise moves and had gained the wisdom as to when to use his head,and when to use his feet!

Spursfan [Anne] has been at the mathematics again and has cleverly worked out that Steve McQueen would have been 80 today,March 24th,2010.

By my reckoning,Clint Eastwood would also have been 80 on May 31st,2010.

It's all Greek to me.
 
Re: Steve McQueen... by Spursfan on 24 March 2010 5:46pm
 
No I haven't b-b - I just read the AOL headlines this morning !

And surely Clint WILL be 80 on May 21st (hopefully)??
