Fun with Wikipedia

I have notice while browsing the knitting blogs lately, that many like to play with Wikipedia. So....I have decided to play along :-)

If you want to play along, look up your birthdate in Wikipedia (minus the year) and list 3 events, 3 births, and 3 deaths from that day. Mine is August 1st.

1498 Christopher Columbus becomes the first European to visit Venezuela
1831 London Bridge Opens
1936 Berlin Olympic games open

1779 Francis Scott Key, American lawyer and lyricist
1819 Herman Melville, American writer
1935 Yves Saint Laurent, French fashion designer

1464 Cosimo di Giovanni de' Medici, ruler of Florence
1714 Queen Anne of Great Britain
1970 Frances Farmer, American actress
