Singer/songwriter Karla Bonoff turns 58 today. Her most well know song is probably Someone to Lay Down Beside Me which appeared on Linda Ronstadt's album Hasten Down the Wind.
Writer, humorist and sometimes actress, Sarah Vowell turns 40 today. I admit I didn't know anything about Sarah until I was given the CD version of her latest book, The Wordy Shipmates. Only Sarah Vowell could make a book about the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Puritans so much fun. Since then I've gone back and read the rest of her books.
