28 March Fortune Teller says

Your birthday today:
Positive and aggressive, you enjoy having people around you. The men born on this day are fortunate and successful in business. The women, good housekeepers, insofar as management of the household and family affairs are concerned, but actual house work is distasteful.
Okay, so, first, there's no name written into the book to share the day with you. Second, it was published in 1938, so apply or ignore gender-specifics any way you want, here. Personally, I believe human nature doesn't change over the course of three or four generations... well, maybe a little. So, perhaps you can include a few of these notable celebrants on your birthday party list, and a couple of them might help you with the house work, cleaning up after the party: Maimonides, Albert the Warlike, Wade Hampton III, Edmund Muskie, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Samuel Sewall*, Thomas Clarkson, William Harvey Carney, Henry Schoolcraft, Alexander Grothendieck, Jerome Isaac Friedman, Spencer W. Kimball, Maxim Gorky, Nelson Algren, A. Bertram Chandler, Mario Vargas Llosa, Paul Whiteman, Jaromír Vejvoda, Jay Livingston, Robert Ashley, Alf Clausen, John Evan, Milan Williams, Rodney Atkins, "Swifty" Lazar, Brett Ratner, Charles Starrett, Marlin Perkins, Jimmie Dodd, Dirk Bogarde, Freddie Bartholomew, Ken Howard, Chris Barrie, Vince Vaughn, Dame Flora Robson, Conchata Ferrell, Dianne Wiest, Julia Stiles, Buck Shaw, Vic Raschi, Derek Hill, Luke Walton, Frederick Pabst, August Anheuser Busch, Jr., Marina Raskova, John Records Landecker,
Reba McEntire

and Samuel Ramey.

The future! Many more birthdays to you all!
