Tagged again, by Jesse at For the Love of Peas and Monkeys. I learned a few things with this meme. The rules are to go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (only the month and day) and then note 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then tag 5 more friends.
Here's what I came up with for my birthday, January 26th.
(My personal favorite) 2004 - A whale explodes in the town of Tainan, Taiwan. A build-up of gas in the decomposing Sperm whale is suspected of causing the explosion.
1837 - Michigan is admitted as the 26th U.S. state.
2006 - Western Union discontinues use of its telegram service.
1925 - Paul Newman, American actor
1955 - Eddie Van Halen, Dutch musician
India - Republic Day - One of only three state holidays in India, celebrated with pomp and a military parade in New Delhi.
I'm only going to tag 4 blogs this time though: Mrs. Flinger, In Search of Walden, Maternal Mirth, Life Turned Upside Down
