Moments in Time

Tomorrow (Thursday, 4th October) is my sons 2nd birthday. In case that doesn't get your jollies up I did some "research" to find some other excuses for you pop the champagne.

470 years ago - The first English-language Bible was printed.

212 years ago - Napolean Bonaparte first rises to national prominence with a "Whiff of Grapeshot" (this one is just for Cameron Reilly)

124 years ago - The Orient Express ran for the first time.

76 years ago - Dick Tracy first appeared.

57 years ago - Snoopy made his debut appearance.

50 years ago - The Russian Empire first chucked a beeping dustbin named Sputnik 1 into orbit.

In response to this the American nation launched their own trash in the form of a TV show called Leave it to Beaver.

22 years ago - The Free Software Foundation was founded.

And 2 years ago - my son was born. Happy Birthday Will. I love you heaps.

*bighugs* to Wil.
I'm actually a bit surprised to find that he hasn't killed himself yet...pleasantly surprised!

I'm glad he had fun at his birthday party!
