Ruthlessly pilfered from bibliophile20 who of course pilfered it from someone before him...

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year).

List three neat facts/events, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

July 24


Events:

1487 - Citizens of Leeuwarden, Netherlands strike against ban on foreign beer

1567 - Mary Queen of Scots is deposed and replaced by her 1 year old son King James VI.

1901 - O. Henry is released from prison in Austin, Texas after serving three years for embezzlement from a bank.




Births:

I was very upset to see that Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald (July 24, 1900 - March 10, 1948), was not on the list

1783 - Simón Bolívar, South American liberator (d. 1830)

1802 - Alexandre Dumas père, French writer (d. 1870)

1969 - Jennifer Lopez, American actress and singer (sorry I just had to throw this one in for a laugh)


Deaths:

1862 - Martin Van Buren, eighth President of the United States (b. 1782)

Honestly I am not that terribly motivated, but she was the insane wife of F.Scott so I kind of have a soft spot for her.

and hello lurking journal friend! ;-)

Interesting. I copied the whole entry for my birthday into Notepad for a closer look when I'm done chatting with your sister.
