the german actor Heinz Rühmann.
As a kid I adored his films.. and I still enjoy them...

or Alexander the Great.

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I watched a movie on t.v. not long ago about Anne Frank. I'd like to sit with her and hear the stories she had to tell of her life before the Holocaust and during. I'm sure her diaries only held a small portion of what she and her family endured during the Holocaust. I'm not Jewish but my heart goes out to all those that suffered.

Annie Oakley.......I'm very much into learning more about women in the 1800's and she truely amazed me.

Florence Nightingale......a pioneer of modern nursing.
