Member dcl (http://www.bautforum.com/members/dcl.html), who most recently posted in August this year, was taught maths by Stanislaw Ulam before Ulam moved to Los Alamos.
That puts him at Harvard in the late 30s, or U. of Wisconsin in the early 40s. So a birthdate in the 1920s seems very probable.

This effervescent lady, Moloko Temo, has been on our news tonight. She was singing a song for the news reporter. Doesn't look a day over twenty one, spirits-wise. Bless her cottons!

Part quote, three+ years old, from an AFP story of July 2005:
An elderly South African woman has reportedly laid claim to be the world's oldest person -- 132 years -- and an organisation representing the old is adamant the accomplishment be officially recognised.

Moloko Temo of Bochum in the country's northern Limpopo province was reportedly born on July 4, 1874 according to a government identity document issued to her in 1988, the Afrikaans-language Beeld daily said.

Temo has eight children, 29 grandchildren, 59 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren.

Wonderful spirit!

ps: note D O B!

Temo has eight children, 29 grandchildren, 59 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren.No great-great-great-grandchildren? The five are probably all younger than 25. So their parents are probably younger than 50. And their grandparents younger than 75. And their great-grandparents younger than 100. And their great-great-grandparents younger than 125. Wait...

You know what that means? She's younger than me.

Following its visit to the Pluto/Charon/Nix/Hydra system in July 2015, the spacecraft (New Horizons) will proceed deeper into the Kuiper Belt to study one or more of the icy mini-worlds in that vast region, up to a billion miles beyond Neptune's orbit.

Trantor
2008-Oct-24, 03:01 PM
Yeah, I agree. I remember before all the bad stuff happened, sometimes I would not even remember my own birthday until it was a few days away. It was just not something that I put much emphasis on. A birthday is just another day for me. I remember my office had a surprise birthday party planned for me on 9/11/01. Our staff still went thru with it, as they had purchased a cake and other things for the party, but it was not one of those "happy" parties, and the talk was all about the events of that day. Still, it's now harder for me to forget my birthday, like I used to do.
