Happy 90th birthday Doris Day

George Michael sang "you make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day".

That perfectly sums up the radiance of Doris Day and today is her 90th birthday.

Here are some fun facts about the birthday girl

Doris was born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff

She has a bad fear of flying. In 2004, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W. Bush. She didn't attend the ceremony because she didn't want to fly there.

She is the last living performer mentioned in "Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee" from the movie Grease.

She refuses to allow any of her songs to be played in any movies that feature swearing.

Her favourite movie she has starred in is Calamity Jane (1953).

Her childhood idol was Ginger Rogers.

She was a heavy smoker, but thankfully quit in 1951.

She is a lover of animals. She has founded several organisations devoted to the welfare of animals.

Our trip to Taronga Zoo

Had a lovely day at Sydney's Taronga Zoo on Friday.

We went by ferry and went alongside the Queen Mary 2. She's HUGE!

Here are some photographs I took of the darling animals at the zoo.

I love goats. One of my favourite animals.

This beautiful baby sea lion was having a little bit of a show off in front of us. The water looked so cool and the weather was so hot, I wanted to jump in with him.

We found this monkey hiding in the tree in one of the other animal enclosures. Very cute.

 Feeding time at the zoo

It was difficult trying to get a photo of the hippo, but I managed to get this one.

I came home and couldn't walk for the rest of the day but I did have a fantastic sleep :)
