Happy St Pancras Day

As John Betjeman wrote:
Saint Pancras was a fourteen-year old Christian boy who was martyred in Rome in AD 304 by the Emperor Diocletian. In England he is better known as a railway station.
Today is also Steve Winwood's birthday.

My birthday too. I always did feel some kind of association with St Pancras (admittedly the district more than the saint) but never realized the coincidence of dates.
