All together now, singing

Happy birthday to me
I'm turning 23
I still have to go to class
But happy birthday to me

Actually, it really isn't that bad. I got brownies with a candle in them and everyone sang. I feel so loved!

To
continue the birthday celebrations, here is a birthday meme stolen from
Mrs. Chili.

The rules: Go to Wikipedia
and type in your birthday month and day only, then post 5 events, 5
births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday.

These things happened on July 26th:

1788 - New York ratifies the United States Constitution and becomes the 11th state of the United States.

1878
- In California, the poet and American West outlaw calling himself
"Black Bart" makes his last clean getaway when he steals a safe box
from a Wells Fargo stagecoach. The empty box will be found later with a
taunting poem inside.

1941 - World War II: In response to the Japanese occupation of French Indo-China, US President Franklin D. Roosevelt orders the seizure of all Japanese assets in the United States.

1971 - Apollo Program: Apollo 15 Mission - Launch of Apollo 15.

1991 - Paul "Peewee Herman" Reubens is arrested in a Sarasota, Florida theater for exposing himself.

These folks were born on the same day as I:

1856 - George Bernard Shaw, Irish writer, Nobel Prize Laureate (d. 1950)

1875 - Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist (d. 1961)

1894 - Aldous Huxley, English-born author (d. 1963)

1928 - Stanley Kubrick, American film director (d. 1999)

1943 - Mick Jagger, English musician (The Rolling Stones)

My holiday:

Cuba - Anniversary of the Moncada Barracks Attack (1953); Day of the National Rebellion

Happy birthday! Now, forward and onward to Chevys! (Any excuse to go there, I swear).
