I was tagged for this birthday meme post by Rhoda Reviews about a year ago (it's not that long ago but it feels like it- sorry!) The meme originally started here at thefivefsblog and if you are going to do your own of these then link it up there as she's trying to get every day covered.
So anyway open wikipedia and here we go...
When is your birthday?
1st of May.
Pick three people that share your birthday and what you know about them.

The others are Derek Asamoah (Ghanian footballer) and American Footballer Wes Welker.
