Birthday Meme

I've been tagged by Elizabeth.

Go to Wikipedia, look up your birthday and list three events, two births, and a holiday. I'm skipping the "tag 5 people" part, though if you want to participate, please do!!

1582-Due to implementation of the Gregorian calendar this day does not exist in this year in Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Spain.

1780-The Great Hurricane of 1780 kills 20,000-30,000 in the Caribbean.

1966-Simon and Garfunkel release the album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.

1813-Giuseppe Verdi, Italian composer, died 1901.

1955-David Lee Roth, American Singer.

Occasionally (only every few years), Columbus Day is observed.

Sorry about the lack of knitting/spinning content. I started my "career" as I have just graduated college and started my new job. I just haven't had the energy to post. Rest assured that there is at least spinning going on. I am working on finishing up the singles from my last post.

Whoa! Your birthday didn't exist for an entire year. That's pretty cool. It's like being born on leap day, but less regular. Your birthday must be pretty close to mine. I just miss Columbus day.
