Ten events from history which share my birthday and sum me up.

Continuing the theme started by the list of books that I feel sum me up, I am now moving on to events from history which share my birthday, and which sum me up, of course!  As before, I leave it to others to guess why I chose them.  Again, in no particular order, but ten as required by the activity:

  1. Robert I was born.
  2. Keats wrote: “Written in the Cottage Where Burns Was Born“.
  3. To Kill a Mockingbird” was first published.
  4. Space Oddity‘ by David Bowie was released in the UK for the first time.
  5. The opening night of The Vortex Club.
  6. Apollo 11 left the Earth‘s atmosphere.
  7. Waterloo (Bridge) Station was opened.
  8. Pope Clement VII excommunicated England’s King Henry VIII.
  9. The US invaded Canada (although some records state this was 12th July 1812 – maybe time-zone issues!).
  10. Skylab crashed into the Earth’s atmosphere and disintegrated over Australia.

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me… 😀
