Birthday Meme

Via several other bloggers

The Rules:
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)

Events: George Washington marries Martha Custis.
FM radio is demonstrated to the FCC for the first time.
Major league baseball player Jackie Robinson retires.

Birthdays: Walter Mondale, politician (a Minnesotan, of course)
Alfred Brendel, pianist (love his recordings of Schubert!!!!)

Death: George Washinton Carver, American educator

Observance: The eleventh day of Christmas in Western Christianity (which I still celebrate, because I don't believe in all this celebration before Christmas Day.)


  1. So does that put you on January 5th? (I'm on Epiphany.)

    Take care & God bless

  2. Yep! I've always loved having the Christmas season stretch just past my birthday. And that is yet another reason to dislike (being somewhat diplomatic with my word choice) the early decorating, celebrating, etc.


And what do you think?
