Blow Out the Candles September 13

A personal hero of mine, Milton S. Hershey was born in Derry Township, Pennsylvania on this date in 1857.

Why is this man a hero?

Author Roald Dahl was born in Llandaff, Cardiff, Wales on this date in 1916.

Coincidentally with our hero of the day, Roald Dahl is most famous for this book:

This is my favorite though, a book of fairy tales retold in his own way in poetry.

Actress Mae Questel was born in the Bronx, New York on this date in 1908.

Mae is best know for being the voice of the 1930's cartoon characters Betty Boop and Olive Oyl.

I love Mae as Woody Allen's mother in Oedipus Wrecks.
