Here are the rules: You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day) Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends.

5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

2. I still use Windows 95.
3. I cleared some loft space recently and found many memories.

Dick; Can you see me?

Teri; Like your tattoo. I might get one too, but Nobody™ would see it. I have emailed all those I tagged, Jane Austen replied with extreme prejudice, Andrew Carnegie & Steve Austin both sent six million dollars, John Barclay told me to fask off, Herbert Stuart coughed a lot, Colin Leyden is still programming the PLC5 to get that box up the ramp, James E. Hall sent two sausage rolls and Ronald McDonald sent a hamburger.

Quite a good response really.
