How fitting...

That I clicked on CCW's blog to find a birthday meme. Why not, since its my birfday! *does a little jig...waves to colleague passing by*

What you do is go to Wikipedia, enter your birthday in the search (month and day only), and pick 3 events, 2 birthdays, and a holiday, then tag 5 others.


August 20


Events:


1882- Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture debuts in Moscow.

1938 - Lou Gehrig hits his 23rd career grand slam - a record that still stands.

1998 - The Supreme Court of Canada states Quebec cannot legally secede from Canada without the federal government's approval.


Birthdays:

1946 - Connie Chung, American journalist (cool!)

1948 - Robert Plant, English singer (Led Zeppelin) (coooool!)


Holiday:

Hungary - St. Stephen's day, the main national holiday in Hungary.

Happy Birthday to you-uuuu!
I tried the wikipedia thingie: March 5th
1496 - England King Henry VII issues letters patent to John Cabot and his sons, authorizing them to explore unknown lands. (interesting since Sir John "discovered" Nfld, my birth place)
1933 - Great Depression: President Franklin D. Roosevelt declares a "bank holiday", closing all United States banks and freezing all financial transactions. (I wonder if I can do that to all of those bill payments coming out of my account?)
1955 - Elvis Presley appears on television for the first time.
Births
1974 - Eva Mendes, American actress
Deaths
1963 - Patsy Cline, American singer (b. 1932)

Happy belated birthday!

My ex has that same birthday. I'm sure you're way cooler than he is. And you're probably on a par with Robert Plant.
