I meme it
I wasn't formally tagged for this meme...but I found it at Novel Nymph's website and so I tag any and all of you. It's a cool one. If you do it, post your link in my comments:
1. Go to Wikipedia, and type in your Birthday--month and day only.
2. List 3 Events that occurred that day.
3. List 2 important Birth days.
4. List 1 Death.
5. List a Holiday or Observance. (if any)
6. Tag 5 other bloggers.
