Don't know whether it's morning or night; only know it's sounding right



Amongst a glut of significant birthdays today - a mixed bag that includes Jimmy Carter, Walter Matthau, Bonnie Parker, Laurence Harvey, Paul Dukas, George Peppard, Tom Bosley, Richard Harris, Stanley Holloway, Youssou N'dour, Stella Stevens, Phil Oakey, Randy Quaid and Donny Hathaway (phew!) - is the wonderful Dame Julie Andrews, "national treasure" and firm favourite of all who reside at Dolores Delargo Towers!

By way of celebration of "Our Julie", here are just a few remarkable examples of her talents...

The stage show from Darling Lili:



Partnering Gene Kelly on Just In Time:



And, of course, (an old favourite) her triumphal Le Jazz Hot from Victor Victoria:



We adore her.

Dame Julie Elizabeth Andrews, DBE (born 1st October 1935)
