Do a Wikipedia search of your birthdate, minus the year; list three interesting events, three people who were born, and three people who died on that day.
1865 - American Civil War: Robert E. Lee surrenders the Army of Northern Virginia (26,765 troops) to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia, effectively ending the war.
Always liked this one. A war ends precisely 100 years before my birth. Pretty cool.
1945 - The United States Atomic Energy Commission formed
1999 - Ismail Omar Guelleh is elected president of Djibouti.
The thing that's good about this one is just the pronunciation of Djibouti.
People who were born:
1821 - Charles Baudelaire, French poet (d. 1867)
"We shall have beds full of subtle perfumes.."
1932 - Cheeta, animal actor, the longest living known chimpanzee in history
1965 - Paulina Porizkova, Czechoslovakian-born actress and supermodel
People who died:
1553 - François Rabelais, French writer
1959 - Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect (b. 1867)
1961 - King Zog of Albania (b. 1895)
I just like that he's named King Zog. What a great name.
Well, I have no knitting content for today :-)
