Thanks to Trish-Bob for the inspiration for this post

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts/events, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

- 1609 - Henry Hudson lands on Manhattan island.
- 1776 - British-American peace conference on Staten Island fails to stop nascent American Revolution.
- 1970 - The Ford Pinto is introduced.

- 1924 - Tom Landry, American football coach
- 1965 - Moby, American musician

- 1971 - Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev, Soviet politician and leader (b. 1894)

Bonus fact:

It is usually the first day of the Coptic calendar and Ethiopian calendar (in the period AD 1900 to AD 2099).
