Oy, Phoney!
What about my birthday on the 24th?
Cards, chocolates, would be much appreciated, but easy on the flowers. (I'm short of vases.)

I don't see your name in the list of 24th March famous births on wikipedia chalkey.
However I did learn that March 24th is the last day of the year of the Julian calendar.

March 24 is the 83rd day of the year (84th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 282 days remaining until the end of the year.

March 24th is the 365th and last day of the year in many European implementations of the Julian calendar.

Well I never.

"In all my years upon this Earth, there's one thing I have found.
You're never finished learning, 'til they put you in the ground."

(Excerpt from one of Chalkey's world famous poems.)

Mini Haha,
I don't think there would be much interest on this site for the doggerel I used to churn out for my kids, friends and family. And, with a nom-de-plume like yours, (wasn't the original Mini Haha the wife of Hiawatha in Longfellow's epic poem 'Song of Hiawatha?') I wouldn't dare try to compete.

Ah well, that's a pity and I disagree - I think this site would be all the better for a bit of poetry. You are right - I did steal my name from Longfellow though I can no longer remember much of it - might look it up now.
