Happy Birthdy Anthony Dominick Benedetto and Martha Helen Kostyra!

Tony Bennett is 90 today and Martha Stewart is 75.

Oddities about each:

Bennett founded the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts, Astoria Queens.

He was an Army infantryman, who saw the end of WW2.

A very successful painter, he has had numerous prestigious exhibits. 

As well as three wives and four kids.


Stewart's first job was as babysitter, age 10, to the kids of NY Yankees players Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and Gil McDougal and other team members.

Age 15, she began modeling. 

Her cooking skills introduced her to her former husband Andrew Stewart whom she married in 1961 and divorced in 1987.  Daughter Alexis, born 1965, is her only issue. 

Other careers have included caterer, magazine editor, stockbroker, and life style guru (staff does the research.) 

***  I hope she baked him an elaborate cake!  He could sing to her in thanks...
