Tagged With Wikipedia MeMe!

I have been tagged by RoseMary at Life In A Cordwood Cabin for this Wikipedia MeMe.

1. Go to Wikipedia and type in the month and day you were born. (For me--Sept. 3).

2. List three events that occurred that day:
A. 1666 - The Royal Exchange burnt down in the Great Fire of London.
B. 1944 - Holocaust: Diarist Anne Frank and her family are placed on the last transport
train from Westerbork to Auschwitz, arriving three days later.
C. 1951 - The first long-running American television soap opera, Search for Tomorrow, airs
its first episode on the CBS network.

3. List two important birthdays:
A. 1849 - Sarah Orne Jewett, American writer (d. 1909).
B. 1905 - Carl David Anderson, American physicist, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1991).

4. List one death:
A. 1658 - Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England (b. 1599).

5. Tag five friends to do the same: (If they want to!)
A. Amy at Ponderings From Picket Fence Cottage
B. Beth at Beth's Bountiful Blessings
C. Laura at Love My Home
D. Dot at Little Bits of Georgia
E. Horizon at Message In A Bottle

I did this meme a few weeks ago and I thought it was so much fun seeing what events had happened on the date I was born:-)

Hi Betty!

I am passing by your nice blog on this wonderful Sunday to wish you a very happy week-end! Hope your are doing fine! How is the weather at your place?

It's unbelievable, but we are having the most beautiful day of the year right now: not a single cloud on a very blue sky, the sun is shining and it feels HOT like in summer! I am just taking a break from sunbathing...

After 10 days off, we need to be back at work as of tomorrow. We had a great holiday and enjoyed most of the time outside in our garden.

Oh, and more than 1000 tulips are blooming outside right now! It looks breathtaking! I'll write my next post about them, so don't forget to pass by my blog next week - you are always more than welcomed!

Warmest wishes from Germany,

These are fun and informational! I'll be doing mine in the next couple of days:)
