Wiki meme

I got this one from Melissa

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only.

October 12

List 3 events that occurred that day

• 1492 - Christopher Columbus's expedition makes landfall in the Caribbean, specifically in The Bahamas. The explorer believes he has reached East Asia

• 1681 - A London woman is publicly flogged for the crime of "involving herself in politics".

• 1773 - America's first insane asylum opens for 'Persons of Insane and Disordered Minds' in Virginia
So there you have it!

List 2 important birth days.

• 1904 - Ding Ling, Chinese writer (d. 1986)

• 1968 - Hugh Jackman, Australian actor and singer

List 1 death.

•1870 - Robert E. Lee, American Confederate general (b. 1807)

Holiday or Observance. (if any):

•Columbus Day (traditionally) - United States.

I don’t share my birthday with anybody that I actually know about. So I chose 1 that I do and one because the name cracked me up! So, on my birth date they opened an insane asylum (how appropriate) and Ding (a) Ling was born!!

That is too funny, about the asylum and all! And, my friend Tammy was also born on October 12, so she often had her birthday off from school!

Hugh Jackman. What a hunk.
