Wiki Waki Meme

Alrighty then! My friends:
Carol,http://www.knit-and-run.blogspot.com/
Mimi, http://www.skullsnbats.blogspot.com/
Torii, http://heyfatlulu.blogspot.com/
and Sarah, http://jupitrpixie.blogspot.com/

have each posted their answers already to this meme. For some reason, when I try to make the links live, they disappear! So, copy and paste the oldfashioned way!
Here's the deal: Go to Wilkipedia. Type in your birthday (no year). Pick three events, 2 births and 1 holiday and post! Send me a link to yours!

3 events

1870 - Louisa Ann Swain of Laramie, Wyoming becomes the first woman in the United States to cast a vote legally after 1807. Woo hoo Louisa. Why don't we know more about the history of women talking the right to vote?

1995 - Cal Ripken, Jr. breaks Lou Gehrig's consecutive games played record.
Woo Hoo Cal! One of my favorite baseball players of all time. Beautiful eyes and candidate for ass-hat of the day. I'm finding a pciture NOW!










2000 - The Millennium Summit takes place.


2 births
1766 - John Dalton, British chemist and physicist (d. 1844)
Woo HOO! Fellow Chemist born on my b-day! Probably not a candidate for ass-hat.

1925 - Jimmy Reed, American blues singer (d. 1976)
I LOVE the blues!

1 holiday

Swaziland - Independence Day (from the United Kingdom, 1968).

I'm beginning to think you have a mild obsession with ass hats...you must of had a great day at the beach!

Yes, obsessed since I have had no action in YEARS (ok, months). I did have a good day at the beach. Knitted, talked to some people, ate potato chips, got sunburned.
