Just stuff!


Ok, saw this on someone else's blog (no, not my goofy picture!) and thought, hmmm what happened on my birthday! So I went to Wiki and searched my bday with no date and viola!
Births:
1898 - M.C. Escher, Dutch artist (d. 1972)
1946 - Barry Manilow, American musician
1980 - Venus Williams, American tennis player

Events:
1994 - Following a televised highway chase and a failed attempt at suicide, O. J. Simpson is arrested for the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.
1991 - Apartheid: The South African Parliament repeals the Population Registration Act, which had required all racial classification of all South Africans at birth.
1972 - Watergate scandal: Five White House operatives are arrested for burglarizing the offices of the Democratic National Committee, in an attempt by some members of the Republican party to illegally wiretap the opposition.
1885 - The Statue of Liberty arrives in New York Harbor.
So now I am 36 and 1 month old today! Happy day!
