And, speaking of summer's days:

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.

Three Events:

1923 - The Hollywood Sign is officially dedicated in the hills above Hollywood, Los Angeles. It originally reads "Hollywoodland " but the four last letters are dropped after renovation in 1949.

1977 - The New York City Blackout of 1977 lasts for 25 hours and results in looting and other disorder.

Two Births:

1940 - Patrick Stewart, English actor

1942 - Harrison Ford, American actor

And One Death:

1974 - Patrick Blackett, English physicist, Nobel Prize laureate (b. 1897)
