I've Been Tagged For A Birthday Meme


I've been tagged by Sis. Michelle to list some events, deaths and births that took place on my birth date. So here they are....

February 23

List 3 Events

1904 .....For $10 million the United States gains control of the Panama Canal Zone.
1905 ....Chicago, Illinois attorney Paul Harris and three other businessmen meet for lunch to form the Rotary Club, the world's first service club.
1991 ....Gulf War: Ground troops cross the Saudi Arabia border and enter Iraq, thus starting the ground-phase of the war.


List 2 Important Birthdays

1850 ....Cesar Ritz, Swiss hotelier
1965. ..Michael Dell, American computer manufacturer

List 1 Death

1848 ....John Quincy Adams, 6th President of the United States

Now I'm to tag five people to post about what they found about their birth date. Just go to Wikipedia and put in your birth date (without the year) in the search and see what results you get and then post 3 events, 2 important birthdays and 1 death that occurred on that date.

I have to admit...this was kinda interesting and fun.

I now tag.....Bro. Chris, Sis. Kristi, Sis. Cindy, Sis. Connie and Sis. Karen

Please leave us a comment letting us know when you have posted your results so we can come over and see. Thanks.
