This is The Birthday Meme. It isn't knitting, but it's educational.
Go to Wikipedia and into the search field type the month and date of your birthday (not the year). Then share with the world:
You are actually supposed to tag five people. So all five of you who read my blog, consider yourselves tagged.
So. My events:
As I said, Galileo discovered Neptune in 1612.
He didn't get credit for the discovery because he thought it was a fixed star
1895: the first showing of a movie to a paying audience.
1897: the premiere of the play Cyrano de Bergerac.
Two people who share my birthday:
Stan Lee, creator of my second favorite comic book character, Thor (also Spiderman, X-Men, The Hulk . . .)
my heart belonged first to Superman.
Uhura: Tell me how your planet Vulcan looks on a lazy evening when the moon is full.
Spock: Vulcan has no moon, Ms Uhuru.
Uhura: I'm not surprised, Mr Spock.
Proclamation Day in South Australia
I like the fact that The Old Gum Tree was involved in the original proclamation
Isn't Wikipedia great?
