Okay, I finally have to give in a do a meme. ;o) Camilla tagged me, so here are three events, two births and one holiday from WikiPedia that all fall on June 14th. (Yep, I just turned 31. It's odd . . . that number keeps increasing, but the older I get, the less I feel like I really know about life. Sure, I can knit and cook and do all kinds of things, but really, life in general? Just as big a dork as ever. Anybody else feel that way?)

Three Events:

1645 - English Civil War: Battle of Naseby – 12,000 Royalist forces are beaten by 15,000 Parliamentarian soldiers.

1919 - John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown depart St. John's, Newfoundland on the first nonstop transatlantic flight.

1967 - Mariner program: Mariner 5 is launched toward Venus.

Two Births:

1444 (O.S.) - Nilakantha Somayaji, Indian mathematician (d. 1544)

1479 (O.S.) - Giglio Gregorio Giraldi, Italian poet (d. 1552)

One Holiday:

International Weblogger's Day – Celebration of the work of webloggers around the world

Okay, since I have a woefully small blog readership, I'll tag a few I've at least emailed. ;o)

I know that's a short list, but this is seriously outside of my comfort zone. ;o) Off to leave "tag" comments.

Have a great weekend!
