Birthday Meme!

I've been tagged by RogueTess via OneTwoManyProjects. This one doesn't require too much effort apart from deciding which three events you deem worthy of mentioning. I think I'll be tagging NaptimeKnitter, AccordionGirl, and Agathon but if you feel like playing along, here's what to do: go to Wikipedia and type in your birth date (omitting the year). Then share with us (at least) 3 events, two births, and one holiday that share your special day. It's easy and fun and we might just learn a thing or two...

Here's mine.


(It was really hard to pick! Of course, Cinco de Mayo* is kinda ubiquitous, but Gandhi was freed from prison, a stock market crash in the late 1800s started...lotsa cool stuff!)


*1862 - Cinco de Mayo in Mexico: Troops led by Ignacio Zaragoza halt a French invasion in the Battle of Puebla.

Thanks for sharing! One of my closest knitter friends is also a May 5. Two Aprils ago, I got to sing in Carnegie Hall with my daughter's HS Madrigal Singers -- a dream come true! Yay for the weaving patent and Intl Midwives....
