Tagged by Thomma Lyn . . . A Birthday Meme

The lovely and talented Thomma Lyn, tagged me for a birthday meme today.

Here are the rules: You go to http://www.wikipedia.org/ and type in your birthday (only month & day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends.

My birthday is October 25.

Three Events

• 1415 - The army of Henry V of England defeats the French at the Battle of Agincourt.

• 1945 - The Republic of China takes over administration of Taiwan following Japan’s surrender to the Allies.

• 2001 - Windows XP is officially released.

Two Births

• 1881 - Pablo Picasso, Spanish painter and sculptor (d. 1973)


• 1912 - Minnie Pearl, American comedian and singer (d. 1996)


One Holiday

• Virgin Islands - Thanksgiving Day

Five friends that I’m tagging to play along:

Red Garnier
Miss Frou Frou
Susan Helene Gottfried

Hey! You called me a friend!

I'm flattered.

Watch however you watch me -- by visiting or your feed reader -- for my take on this meme. Yes, you should be worried. *grin*

Mine is Sep 6 and here are my favorites:

1847 - Henry David Thoreau leaves Walden Pond and moves in with Ralph Waldo Emerson and his family in Concord, Massachusetts.

1943 - Roger Waters, British musician born

Hi Christine, I'm getting ready for a big trip, so I can't get a post ready right now, but I looked and came up with this for my birthday on May 17:

Birthdays: Sugar Ray Lenoard and Taj Mahal

Events: 1918 All members of Sin Fen are arrested.

1973 Televised Watergate hearings begin.

2004 Massachusetts is the first state to legalize same sex marriages.

How cool that you share a birthday with Picasso and with Minnie Pearl! I love 'em both. :-)
