Friday, January 19
Yes, it's the queen of Southern cooking's birthday! Paula Deen turns 60 today and she is going stronger than ever. It seems like no coincidence that it's also another famous southerner's birthday today:
Paula and Dolly seem like they could have been childhood pals, don't they? With Dolly down in Tennessee and Paula in Georgia, they'd have made quite the team. Maybe someday they'll do a birthday gig together.
Anyhow, lots of luck to them both.
Other noted birthdays on Jan. 19 include: Edgar Allan Poe (would be 198 today), Full House's Jodie Sweetin is 25 and Desi Arnaz Jr. is 54.
