Weekend cheating

(Since it’s the weekend, I’m just going to skate and throw up another meme that’s going around.)

Go to Wikipedia. In the search box, type your birth month and day (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this on your blog.
