Birthday Meme

I was tagged by Carol to do this fun birthday meme.

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

1. 1942 - Manhattan Project: A team led by Enrico Fermi initiates the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction.

I learned so many cool things that happened on my birthday.

I'm tagging:
My sister, because she needs more to do!
Lisa, and anyone else who wants to play along.

It's pretty interesting to see what has happened on the day of your birth!

I can't believe this! You and I did the same post today. That's like showing up to a ball in the same dress!

Hmph. And you probably would look better in it too.

Thanks for your comment today Jenn!! I am glad to have read some of your updates, since I hadn't been over here in a while. Glad to see things are progressing, but I am sorry you feel so sick!

Prayers!!

Great job! Thanks for playing along.

I'm going to have to put this off for a little while because I'm drowning a bit under other things to do... but one day I will do it! It sounds fun. :-)

I love you, Jenn, and I miss you. I wish we could just hang out in the same room somehow...

Always, Lisa
