It is. I grabbed every known birthday from my old list to Microsoft Excel, added new birthdays in, separated them by full birthdays, and missing compartments (missing years, missing dates, etc) and uploaded them to Google Docs. It took me a few hours last night to compile them.

And as always, DM me on Twitter or post here if you know their birthdays (or parts, I'll take those too)

A couple birthdays...

Happy belated birthday to Shirley Robertson, host of Mainsail, who turned 41 on July 15.

And happy birthday to Erica Hill, CNN Headline News anchor, who turns 33 today.

By the way, folks, you might want to bookmark the website, just in case we reach x number of pages to waste time looking through.

You're welcome, Nuggle.

I was just watching I-Desk, and Isha just metioned her birthday, but I might've misheard it. If anyone knows, let me know.

No, she hasn't have a birthday yet, and I wouldn't know anyway until people start tweeting her. ;-) But when I get the chance, I'll tweet her.

Aug 14 -- Kitty Pilgrim (turning 55)

Wow! She aged extremely well! I would never have guessed that she's in her 50s!
Ok I don't see her very often (hardly ever), but she was filling in for Lou Dobbs when the death of Michael Jackson broke - she looked very young!

Happy Birthday to Connie Chung. I know she is no longer at CNN, but here is a little article: http://www.findingdu... ... chung.html

I never ever watched her show on CNN, but Ted Turner once said that she was awful, and a lot of people seem to say that too. :-?

Kyung Lah -- August 27, 1971 (age 38) (thanks, tague)

Charles Hodson -- July 20, 1956 (age 53) (honestly, I didn't think he looks 53. Found out his birthday via Facebook when I added him as a friend, which he accept, and he graduated from high school in 1974. Usually you would be around 18 when graduation day rolls around, so the year I had to figure out myself)

Rosemary Church -- November 10, 1962 (age 46) (found out through her own tweet that someone favored. Already got the year.)

Dezbee, I have a correction. According to the Independent of London, Charles was born in 1955, not 1956. Small error, I know. :-)
