I've been tagged again by Vicky and this one is really interesting!
The rules are to go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.
My birthday is October 18th, and on this day in
1648 - Boston Shoemakers form first U.S. labor organization.
1851 - Herman Melville's Moby-Dick is first published as The Whale by Richard Bentley of London.
1968 - The U.S. Olympic Committee suspends two black athletes for giving a "black power" salute during a victory ceremony at the Mexico City games.
I share my birthday with
1935 - Peter Boyle, American actor (d. 2006)
1961 - Wynton Marsalis, American musician
(I also share it with Pam Dawber & Erin "Joanie Cunningham" Moran, but I've known that for years! lol)
And the 18th is, according to the French Republican Calendar, Piment (Chili Pepper) Day (spicy!)
Mary, Joanne, Ruinwen, Dani, & Denise... you're it!
