1582 - Due to the implementation of the Gregorian calendar this day does not exist in this year in Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain.
1978 - US President Jimmy Carter signs a bill into law that authorizes the minting of the Susan B. Anthony dollar. Only doing this one because that was a very good year! LOL

1954 - David Lee Roth, American singer
Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, United States actress again... great year!

I'm going to do it on Monday instead - too hot to think a lot and I already did this a few months ago, so it's already done. Well, except for Bailey's.

Tori Lennox said...

I did this one back on April 8th. :)

Camy Tang said...

This is cute! But no, that's not an invite to tag me.

Danica/Dream said...

LOL Loreth, we'll have to see, won't we? I forgot that she's Bailey now. It's weird to call someone other than my child by that name, BTW. She'll probably always be Eve to me. Although... didn't you used to have another online name? I think that's the worst part of folks selling... I get all name discombobulated.

Camy... if you notice, you didn't get tagged. LOL. I only tag folks that I know don't mind being tagged.

Which is why I think it's funny that Miz Heather decided to post hers, because the last time I tagged her, she read me the riot act. ;)
