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