Meme’d again :-)

June 19, 2007

Anne tagged me for a new meme that’s pretty interesting actually…

Here are the rules: The rules: You go to http://www.wikipedia.org/ and type in your birthday (only the month and day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends

January 14 is the 14th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. There are 351 days remaining (352 in leap years).
It is celebrated as New Year’s Day by those still following the Julian calendar.

Three(ish) Events
(I can’t pick just three.. sorry)
1129 – Formal approval of the Order of the Knights Templar at the Council of Troyes.
1690 – The clarinet is invented in Nuremberg, Germany.
1952 – The Today Show premieres on NBC.
1954 – Marilyn Monroe weds Joe DiMaggio.
1972 – The TV comedy Sanford & Son (an American import of the British comedy Steptoe and Son) premieres on NBC.

Births (ok, no way I’m sticking with 2 here.. there were too many interesting people with my birthday!)
83 BC – Marcus Antonius, Roman politician (d. 30 BC)
1741 – Benedict Arnold, American general notorious for treason (d. 1801)
