September 4th is special because. . .

Here is something cool, I was tagged by LeslieJ

The rules: Go to Wikipedia and type in your birth month and date (mine is Sept 4th), then post 3 events, 2 births and a holiday. Then tag 5 others, I'm following Leslie's lead & only tagging 2 people---Lacey & Kristyn.


Events:

1781 - Los Angeles, California, is founded as El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora La Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula (the City of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angels of the Little Portion) by 44 Spanish settlers.

1950 - The "Beetle Bailey" comic strip begins.

1972 - Mark Spitz wins his seventh swimming gold medal at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany, becoming the first Olympian to do so. Spitz swam in only seven events and set world records in each one.

Birthdays:

1918 - Paul Harvey, American radio broadcaster

1968 - Mike Piazza, baseball player

I swear they used to list Ivan the Terrible's b-day at 9/4.

Holiday:

Quatre Septembre in France - celebrates the Proclamation of the Third Republic in 1870

For what it's worth, I was born on Labor Day!
