Birthday Quiz 18 December

Something a little different today.  It’s my birthday and I am a bit busy, so it’s shorter than usual. I have always had a very good birthday as my parents went to great lengths to ensure it wasn’t swallowed up by the Christmas Festivities. So here is a non-Christmas short quiz based on my birthday, because I’m indulging myself for a day.  As usual the answers are in the first comment below. There are no picture clues today, so just some reflections from yesterday.
