Wiki Birthday Meme Thing

I really don't want to post since I still re-read what my DH posted on Monday. He has such a kind and loving heart - and a great sense of humor!!

It is my turn to write a post....... I got this idea from: Sting My Heart
Since my birthday is soon approaching, I thought I would try it....

Wiki Birthday Meme Thing - at least that is what it is called.
Here are the rules are:
1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)
6) Tag 5 other bloggers to complete

I added a few extra lines.........
Events on my Birthday:
1434 - Foundation stone of Cathedral St. Peter and St. Paul in Nantes, France was laid.
1860 - The first Pony Express rider reaches Sacramento, California.
1865 - U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is shot in Ford's Theatre by John Wilkes Booth.

Born on my Birthday:
1905 - Elizabeth Huckaby, American educator (d. 1999)
1941 - Julie Christie, British actress
1966 - Greg Maddux, American baseball player

Died on my birthday:
1964 - Rachel Carson, American environmentalist (b. 1907)
1995 - Burl Ives, American singer and actor (b. 1909)
1999 - Ellen Corby, American actress (b. 1911)

Holiday: Songkran - one of the three days celebrating the Thai New Year

As an extra bonus.....from the birthday calculator web site (linked on the right sidebar of our blog)
My birth tree is:
Maple, Independence of Mind
No ordinary person, full imagination and originality, shy and reserved, ambitious, proud, self-respect, hungers for new experiences, sometimes nervous, many complexes, good memory, learns easily, complicated love life, wants to impress.

That was fun. I won't tag anyone - just do it!
Have a great week!

I thought Burl Ives was still alive. To think he died 12 years ago ~ Wow!

This is a fun meme.
