Lucky to be alive at the same time as.....?

Was it Eric Clapton that said this about Bob Dylan? I cant remember...but the sentiment being that he felt lucky to be on the planet at the same time as him - due to his place in history I guess.

So, who do you feel lucky to be on the planet with?

My list, which is neither intended to political, partisan or contentious...

The Queen - I'm not a royalist, but to be a live during her reign is quite special

Nelson Mandela - to share the planet with that mans courage, hope and inspiration makes my time a little easier

Margaret Thatcher - not becuase I agree or disgaree with her politics, but as she is our first female PM, and such a contentious person all round.

And of course, Delia Smith - because even though her status is already legendary in the pantheon of TV Cooks, this can only improve, and time will look back on Mrs D's legacy with wonder I think

I think thats all for now...how about you?

Lucky to be alive

I don't think about being lucky until something goes wrong and then I realise that in the scheme of things I am blessed, I have good health and a smashing husband who cannot keep an argument up without laughing if I start to torment him to get my own way. This is also why I enjly this website because he has such a sweet tooth and is always open to 'cake - blackmail'.

Happy Birthday, Thistledo!

Lovely thread, Rob. I am glad to be alive at the same time as computers, fridges, washing machines and all those things where invented, which make life somewhat easier and more enjoyable.

Now as for people, first my lovely husband, then our Queen for doing a great job for so long; Winston Churchill for possibly without him, I wouldn't have been born; The Beatles and Buddy Holly for such great music; Delia for being such an inspiration to me and all those lovely people I'm proud to call my friends.
