What happened on your Birthday?

Happy BirthdayThere was a time that I cringed when my birthday was coming. What happened on my birthday? April 19th has some really interesting events happen on it… the U.S.S. Iowa explosion, Wako, Oklahoma city… ugh. Going back in history, it doesn't get much better. It was the day that the American Revolution started!

What happened on your Birthday?

Wikipedia has an entry for every day of the year that you can read. I wanted to add that it was the day that I was born, but I'm not sure that's really history. 😉

      Thanks, Rick! Feel free to ‘borrow’ it if you’d like. I saw that Wikipedia formed each date with the Month_date so I just wrote a little Javascript event to concatenate the values into a new location for the browser.

      It would have been a lot easier except that IE7 didn’t default the value to the select item. So the form took up twice the room for that.

      That’s a cool three to share a birthday with!

    Cool – I share my birthday with no lesser than Cameron Diaz 🙂

    (And, yes, IE is terrible. I worked almost a week on a very cool blog layout, only to find out that, even though it was XML compliant, it just did not render correctly in IE.)

    my bday is on June 21st and here’s what wikipedia says:

    “This day usually marks the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere, and thus is the day of the year with the longest hours of daylight in the northern hemisphere and the shortest in the southern hemisphere.”
