A meme:
Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

Mine is: October 14th

Three neat facts:
1582 – Due to the implementation of the Gregorian calendar this day does not exist in this year in Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain.

1968 – First live telecast from a manned U.S. spacecraft Apollo 7.

1926 – The children’s book Winnie-the-Pooh, by A.A. Milne, is first published.

Two births:
1894 – E. E. Cummings, American poet (d. 1962)

1927 – Roger Moore, English actor
(I’m definately ignoring the fact that Cliff Richard is listed there.)

One death:
1066 – Harold Godwinson, King of England
