Birthday Meme

Here's a meme i found, don't ask me where! i did a google search and found several, that'll i'll be spicing up my blog with every so often. and now that i have figured out how to play the game, i'll be tagging some bloggers to play along. watch out internets, i'm on a roll!!!

and no, its not my b-day, not even close. i always wanted to have a summer b-day instead of a dec b-day, you know, too close to Christmas ...

The instructions:

1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)


1606 - The Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and the Discovery depart England carrying settlers who, at Jamestown, Virginia, found the first of the thirteen colonies that became the United States. (that's cool)

1941 - World War II: Adolf Hitler becomes Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the German Army. (isn't that a nice event? NOT )

2001 - A record high barometric pressure of 1085.6 hPa (32.06 inHg) is recorded at Tosontsengel, Khövsgöl Province, Mongolia. (and this one's for the hubby)

1848 - Emily Brontë, English author (b. 1818)

1980 - Jake Gyllenhaal, American actor (he's kinda cute, i don't think i've seen him in anything)
1961 - Reggie White, American football player (d. 2004) (i think i remember him, so sad he died young)
1936 - Marian McKnight, Miss America 1957 (don't have a clue who this is)

Roman festivals - Opalia (i think the romans had a festival for every day of the year!)

Fun meme - Gail. My birthday actually is in the summer. July to be exact. Sarah (5 year old, youngest) and I share a birthday. Isn't that a fun present!

I'll definitely do this meme over the weekend. Thanks for the tag. :)
