On July 2 in history

Thanks to Tracey at Never Ending Mind http://neverendingmind.blogspot.com/ I am participating in the following - tag yourself if interested and leave message -- I check out yours. Karrie

Here are the rules: You go to http://www.wikipedia.org/ and type in your birthday (only the month and day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends.

July 2 is the exact middle of the calendar year, there are 182 days before and after (except leap years) and it is always on the same day of the week as Jan 1 (except for leap years).

1. 1937 Amelia Earhart disappeared
2. 1947 A UFO crashes near Roswell New Mexico - the government denies the whole thing.
3. 1962 The first ever Wal Mart opens.

I share my birthday with:

1932 Dave Thomas, founder of the "Wendy's " chain
1986 Lindsay Lohan

Canada Day is celebrated on July 2 if the 1st is on a Sunday.

And there you have it.

Very good! I had fun doing this one! We both share our birthdays with very important people. You have Dave Thomas of Wendy's (very important) and I share mine with Milton Hershey of Hershey's chocolate. Both important staples in life!
