On This Day

 "Listen! Do you smell something?"

And Shepherds we shall be For thee, my Lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomeni Patri Et Fili
[Guns Cock]  Spiritus Sancti.” -Boondock Saints

So the other day I was reading some of my favorite blogs when I saw that Burg had done this really fun meme and I decided I wanted to do it too.  Here are the rules you go to Wikipedia 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.

3 Events

  • 1880 Thomas Edison files a patent for his electric incandescent lamp.

  • 1967 More than sixty nations sign the Outer Space Treaty banning nuclear weapons in space.

  • 1997 It is revealed that French museums have nearly 2,000 pieces of art that were stolen by Nazis.

2 Births

  • 1756 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

  • 1832 Lewis Carroll

1 Holiday

  • United Kingdom-Holocaust Memorial Day

Glad I made the time to stop into your blog to see I've been tagged. I can't keep up with blog reading with all our business these days! Anyhoo...I will accept the tag and post accordingly whenever I can crawl out from under a massive pile of paperwork and wall to wall boxes for a few minutes.
