There are 3 major clusters that I see off the bat.  The "February 22" pattern-cluster is by far the most meaningful given that the date has cropped up a number of times in the past week.  And note Bikel's 2 May Birthday... today is 2 May... Toumai -- Hope For Life.   And there's also the "May 16, 17, 18, 19, _, 21, 22/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster... with May 16 being Rob MacGregor's birthday (see earlier posts this week).
