Little Time To Rest

Continuing from my previous post, note this excerpt:
This morning I woke up singing two lines of a childhood song that you too may be familiar:
A robin feathering his nestHas very little time to rest... 
It's the only part I recall other than the chorus ...and what I thought was the next line "for feathering his nest a robin sings".   I checked the lyrics, and that line isn't part of the song whatsoever... not even close:
While gathering his bits of twine and twig
It's not the first time that I've mistaken the words of a song.  I still like my version :-)(-: .
Note from "A Spoonful of Sugar"(song) wiki page:
"A Spoonful Of Sugar" is a song from Walt Disney's 1964 film and the musical versions of Mary Poppins
In the film Mary Poppin's was played by actress Julie Andrew's, note from her wiki page:
  •  Julie Andrews, (née Wells; born 1 October 1935) 
Her Maiden name "Wells" certainly jives-- an addition to the "Wells/Swells/Wellington/Water Theme" pattern-cluster.  And, her birthday of October 1 stands out, note the following info regarding a notable person recently added to the Deaths in 2017 site under May 23:
  • Ben Finney (October 1, 1933 – May 23, 2017) 83, American anthropologist 
When I first saw the "Finney", and the cryptic "time Fin knee" in his name, I knew something was up.  This was confirmed with finding two others listed under May 23 whose birthdays are also October...  and generate an "October 14, _, 18/ Even Number Date Sequence" pattern-cluster: 
  • Viorel Morariu (18 October 1931 – 23 May 2017)
  • Sir Roger George Moore (14 October 1927 – 23 May 2017)
The "18" is also an addition to the recent "18" pattern-cluster. that was also introduced by the MacGregor's in their recent May 19 post, A Cluster of 18s: Trump and Democracy.  I didn't bother to investigate the October 16 gap at the time because other matters.. like the "Robin/Robinson Theme" pattern-cluster, had surfaced.  Now I'm beginning to see that they interconnect.  And then driving it home further, note this next excerpt from my post made yesterday, Eddy Bye... by... bi
  • Sir Cliff Richard (born Harry Rodger Webb, 14 October 1940) 
  • Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) 
  • John William Carson (October 23, 1925 – January 23, 2005
  • Hank Brian Marvin ( 28 October 1941)
 As you can see, there's much ado about October 14 and 18!! An now, as I think of it... and for the record, the "bye... by... bi" in the post title coupled with "robin" reminds me of the film title "Bye Bye Birdie".   On the wiki page of Mary Poppin's (film), I investigated each of the cast, and though I found many astounding clusters, I limited the search to those who were either born and/or died in October.
  • Glynis Johns (born October 5, 1923 
  • Elsa Sullivan Lanchester (28 October 1902 – 26 December 1986) 
  • Don Barclay (December 26, 1892 – October 16, 1975) 
  • Jane Darwell (October 15, 1879 – August 13, 1967)  
Another individual who also played a big part in the films Production stands out:
 Cameron Mackintosh (born 17 October 1946) theatrical producer
So we now have an "October 14(x2), 15, 16, 17, 18(x2)" pattern-cluster, not to mention the smaller "pair" clusters within... and the "October 1(x2)" pattern-cluster.  His surname reminds me of MacKintosh Toffee... which is mostly made of sugar... and so that would help the medicine go down even better (from my taste perspective)!!   The MacKintosh wiki page provides the name of the original owner and his wiki page doesn't provide a birth/death date, butt the next in line-- his son who is now owner:
  • Harold Mackintosh, 1st Viscount Mackintosh of Halifax (8 June 1891 – 27 December 1964)
Interesting the place "Halifax", given that I'm just 30 minutes from Halifax, Nova Scotia.  His date of birth and death stand out, note this excerpt from my recent May 23 post, Rattz Pack Cash Running Time:
Venturing back to one of my posts of today, The Quack Pack, note  the following info re the "Rat Pack" :   
  • Humphrey DeForest Bogart (December 25, 1899 – January 14, 1957)
  • Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra ( December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) 
  • Dean Martin (born Dino Paul CrocettiJune 7, 1917 – December 25, 1995) 
  • Samuel George "SammyDavis Jr. (December 8, 1925 – May 16, 1990) 
  • Peter Sydney Ernest Lawford ( 7 September 1923 – 24 December 1984)
  • Joseph Abraham Gottlieb (February 3, 1918 – October 17, 2007)
Keep in mind that June 7th is also Trish MacGregor's birthday. We also have a "December 24, 25(x2), _, 27/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  AND we have another October 17 hence expanding the cluster:
  •  "October 14(x2), 15, 16, 17(x2), 18(x2)" pattern-cluster
Not only do we have an "October 14(x2)" pattern-cluster within, butt we are one "October 16" short of generating a cluster of 3 pairs!!

It seemed to me that there's another October 14 that had cropped up in one of my recent posts, so investigating I arrive at the following excerpt from my May 14 post, Strict Land:
And so the cluster expands again:
  •  "October 13, 14(x3), 15, 16, 17(x2), 18(x2)" pattern-cluster
Another post that the search brought up is astounding, note from my recent March 22 post, Leo (x3)
Going back to my March 19 post re "Captain Blood", there were a number of loose threads-- uninvestigated pattern-clusters.  Since then we've had a major "October" pattern-cluster and it appears that it all began with this post, as noted by the following excerpts:
  • Kenneth Casey Robinson (October 17, 1903 – December 6, 1979)
  • Ernest Jacob Haller (May 31, 1896 – October 21, 1970)
  • George Joseph Amy (October 15, 1903 – December 18, 1986) 
  • Errol Leslie Flynn[1] (20 June 1909 – 14 October 1959
  • Frank McGlynn Sr. (October 26, 1866 – May 18, 1951) 
A similar cluster had cropped up 2 months earlier!!  And so the cluster expands again and a new one is generated:
  • "October 13, 14(x4), 15(x2), 16, 17(x3), 18(x3), _, _, 21" pattern-cluster
  • "October 26, _, 28(x3)" pattern-cluster.  
And also note the first part of the excerpt concerning a major "October" pattern-cluster.  It appears that the inner twin world have been gearing up for quite some time.

As for bridging the December 26 gap above, using the formula as per usual ... and stretching just a bit outside the box, we arrive at:
  • 2011 – Joe Bodolai (May 11, 1948 – December 26, 2011) screenwriter, producer
  • 2011 – James Rizzi (October 5, 1950 – December 26, 2011[1]) painter, illustrator
And so the clusters expand:
  • "October 25(x3), 26(x2), _, 28(x3)" pattern-cluster.
  • "October 5(x2)" pattern-cluster
  • "_, April 11, May 11, _/ 11th Day, Month Sequence" pattern-cluster 
I included three October 25, because 3 of my life partners family members are born on October 25 during different years.
