50 years ago . . .

As you may know, I’m counting down to the big 5-0!  I gotta say, I feel pretty excited about it.  I’m healthy, fit and still love to learn new things.  So as the old saying goes, age is just a number, it really is about how you feel.

I’m excited to celebrate on Tuesday and I hope you’ll join me and come on over to the glamjulz studio!

Today I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the really cool things that happened in our world back in 1969.  Looks like I was born into a pretty eventful year!

  • Honky Tonk Woman by The Rolling Stones was the number one song on the day I was born.
  • Age of Aquarius hit number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
  • The Beatles made their last public appearance on the roof of Apple Records.
  • More than 350,000 Rock ‘n’ Roll fans attend Woodstock.
  • Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin land on the moon.
  • The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, America’s most beloved muscle car was released.
  • The average cost of a new house was $29,000.
  • Average yearly income was $17,500.
  • Sesame Street makes its debut on PBS.
  • Bell bottom jeans and tie-dye T-Shirts becomes part of the teenage fashion trend.
  • Robert Plant celebrates his 21st birthday on the day I was born.

I’m not the only one celebrating 50 this year.  Being born in 1969 will also be celebrated by some of my favourite celebrities.  Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Anniston, Jennifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta Jones, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchette, Jay-Z, Matthew Perry, Dave Grohl and Jason Bateman.

I’m in great company, what an amazing year to come into the world!

Only two more sleeps till 50!  Wooo Hooo!!!
