Kinda Fun and interesting

Okay, I'm doing this because Libby tagged me. (ok, so she tagged everyone else too, but I wanted to feel special) This is what you do....go to Wikipedia and enter your month and day you were born (mine is may 23) and then hit search and see what comes up. List 3 events, 2 important (or interesting) births, 1 death and 1 holiday or observance. Here is my list:

Events:
1555 - Paul IV becomes Pope.
1934 - American bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed by police and killed in Black Lake, Louisiana.
1969 - Rock band The Who release Tommy, the first rock opera.

Births:
1910 - Artie Shaw, American clarinetist and bandleader (d. 2004)
1958 - Drew Carey, American actor and comedian

Deaths:
1701 - Captain Kidd, Scottish pirate (b. 1645)

Holiday/Observance:
World Turtle Day


Now it's your turn. Even if you don't want to post it, it's kinda neat to go take a look. And I expect everyone to celebrate World Turtle Day with me!

World Turtle Day? Sounds like a good day to sit around and eat those chocolate nut caramel turtle candy things and drink coffee. :)

Hope you're well. Sorry I haven't been 'round in a while.
