Re: Famous Events/Births/Deaths On Your Birthday

I don't know what famous events happened on my b-day (Feb. 3rd), but my paternal grandfather died on my 1st birthday and my maternal grandfather had a stroke the day after my birthday which killed him 11 days later. My birthday was the last one he celebrated in his life....I got to spend his last "living" evening with him. I think it's kinda weird.....

I'll look up famous stuff and post later.....
