Yes, it's meme time, nicked from just about everyone at this stage.

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (e.g. 12th May). Post three events, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

So here's what happened on the 12th of September...


490 BC - Athens defeats Persia at the Battle of Marathon
1940 - Cave paintings discovered in Lascaux, France.
1992 - Mae Carol Jemison becomes the first African-American woman in space on STS-47.

BIRTHS
1492 - Lorenzo de Medici
And.....wait for it....
1951 - Bertie Ahern, Irish Prime Minister

I share a birthday with Bertie! We are birthday twins! Divided by a mere 24 years! Oh, how can I live with this shame? *weeps*

I also share a birthday with Jesse Owens, Ryan off the O.C. and Barry White. But then there's Bertie! Why did I never know this dreadful news before?

Anyway. DEATHS
2003 - Johnny Cash, American singer and guitarist (b. 1932)

Sniff. So, on my birthday, Bertie was born and Johnny Cash died. This can't be an auspicious day.
