Wiki Meme

March 23, 2007

The rules are:

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)
6) Tag 5 other bloggers to complete

Three events:

~1896 – The X-ray machine is exhibited for the first time.
~1916 – A 611 gram chondrite type meteorite struck a house near the village of Baxter in Stone County, Missouri.
~1964 – Plans are revealed for the World Trade Center in New York City.

Two Birthdays:

1882 – A. A. Milne, English author (d. 1956)
1955 – Kevin Costner, American actor

One death:

1862 – John Tyler, 10th President of the United States (b. 1790)

One holiday or observance:

Winnie The Pooh Day (in observance of the birthday of Alan Alexander Milne, 1882.)

*Hey Mum?  Did you know about Winnie The Pooh Day??  (Ya’ll, I was called Pooh Bear from Day 1) 

I got this from Simply A Musing Blog and like her I’m going to cheat a little on the end here because there are just too many people that tend to party-poo*p on the Meme’s.  It’s really interesting to do so if you decide to do it, please let me know so I can check out your blog!
