Another Tuesday, another chance to do the Funky Chicken and get jiggy with it.
I’ll be all right once the pills kick in.
Seriously I will. Now where did those polar bears come from?
History tell us that on this day in…
1607 – Flight of the Earls from Lough Swilly, Donegal, Ireland.
1901 – President of the United States William McKinley dies after a successful assassination attempt on September 6, and is succeeded by Theodore Roosevelt.
1948 – Groundbreaking for the United Nations headquarters in New York City.
1975 – The first American saint, Elizabeth Ann Seton, is canonized by Pope Paul VI.
1994 – The Major League Baseball season is canceled because of a strike.
Happy birthday to:
New Zealand (but Northern Ireland born) actor Sam Neill is 63.
Dmitry Medvedev, President of Russia is 45.
Ashlyn Gere, American pornographic actress, is 43. (Nope, never seen her movies, either…*whistles innocently*)
Ashley Roberts, American singer with the Pussycat Dolls, dancer & actress is a foot-stomping 29.
And last, but by no means least, everyone’s favourite car-crash Amy Winehouse is 27. They said she had to go to rehab and she said no, no, no! Poor thing!
