Since I have time...

Ha ha, I may be on vacation, but that doesn't mean I can't do the meme everyone else is doing!

Instructions: Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

December 8 had both good and bad things happening on it:

Events:

1941 - World War II: Pacific War - After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour the U.S. Congress passes a declaration of war against Japan.
1968 - NLS (a system for which hypertext and the computer mouse were developed) is publicly demonstrated for the first time in San Francisco.
1991 - The leaders of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine sign an agreement dissolving the Soviet Union and establishing the Commonwealth of Independent States.


Births:

1943 - Jim Morrison, American singer (The Doors) (d. 1971)
1976 - Dominic Monaghan, German-born British actor [How the heck is he so young?]

Death:

1980 - John Lennon, British musician, singer, and songwriter (b. 1940)

(Grabbing a little net time while guests are in the shower: priceless.)
