Two posts in one day... can you stand the excitement???

No one ever tags me for the blog memes I just wander around the blogs I read and do the ones I think look fun. Anyway this one comes from JenLa.

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post three events, two births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday.

May 30

3 Events

1431 - Hundred Years' War: In Rouen, France, 19-year-old Joan of Arc burned at the stake by an English-dominated tribunal.

1536 - King Henry VIII of England marries Jane Seymour, a lady-in-waiting to his first two wives.

1958 - Memorial Day: The remains of two unidentified American servicemen, killed in action during World War II and the Korean War, are buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.

2 Births

1908 - Mel Blanc, American voice actor (d.1989)

1943 - Gale Sayers, American football player

and just to go along with my theory the there is never anyone good listed when they do the "born on this day things" in the paper for MY birthday....

1968 - Zacarias Moussaoui, French citizen found guilty relating to September 11, 2001 attacks

1 Holiday

United States – Memorial Day (originally)

and since they decided we need a three day weekend in the US and moved the holiday that was on my birthday....

Peru – National Potato Day
