Born today, you are straightforward and uncomplicated, and glad to do what comes your way if it is honest work and provides you with financial growth and inner contentment. You are not someone who needs much in either of these departments, of course. A little bit goes a long way as far as you are concerned, and you know you needn't be rich to be happy. If you are able to provide for yourself and those under your care, travel a bit and interact honestly with those you encounter in life, you will consider yourself fortunate. You are certainly the kind of person to see opportunities for joy wherever they may lie, and you almost always see the glass as half full.
Though you can be quite serious-minded, you enjoy fun and recreation as much as the next person -- sometimes even more! You enjoy all manner of games, especially those that pit your skill against others', and you love to engage with those whose abilities make you better.
Also born on this date are: Enrique Iglesias, singer; Melissa Gilbert, actress; Harry Truman, U.S. president; David Attenborough, television host; Don Rickles, comedian and actor; Ricky Nelson, singer; Toni Tennille, singer; Sonny Liston, boxer; Ronnie Lott, football player; Bill Cowher, football coach; David Keith, actor; Peter Benchley, writer; Stephen Amell, actor.
