On My Birthday Meme

I was tagged by Ange at This is Life 


The meme is to answer some questions about my birthday, let’s see what happens on my big day!


When is your birthday? 

14th May


Pick three people who share your birthday and share what you know about them.

Mark Zukerberg– Facebook anyone?

Cate Blanchett  – Actress. I loves her and we share a birthday. She’s older than me but I look older than her. Life isn’t  fair.

Danny Wood – The lesser known New Kid on the Block


Is anyone listed as being born on the same day as you (ie the same year)? If so, what do you know about them?

Nope I’m the only one.


List three people who died on your birthday and tell us what you know about them.

Frank Sinatra – Old Blue Eyes himself- Singer, actor…

Henry IV – the French king.

Frances Perkins the first woman to serve in the cabinet. She helped with the New Deal and Social Security. Was born in Massachusetts (like me!)


List three notable events that took place on your birthday.

1908 – 1st passenger flight in an airplane

1939 – Lina Medina becomes the world’s youngest confirmed mother in medical history at the age of five. WTF?!?!?!  Is that even possible?

1970 – Cops kill 2 students in racial disturbance (Jackson State U, Miss)


Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday.

It’s Fallen Soldiers Remembrance Day in Israel between 14 April and 14 May

    Haha, yes. Happy to take the blame! So interesting what people pick out to write about. The 5 year old mother is just so wrong. I’m going to have to look into that one.
