Obligatory Birthday Post
I've aged! How did that happen? By gosh by golly, my bathroom cabinet is starting to look like my Grandmothers!! From the 81mgs of heart healthy aspirin to a half dozen arthritis remedies. Oil of Olay is now my bedtime ritual and I've been stocking up on the Revlon Hair Dye products.

Besides the obvious, there are some interesting and fun facts regarding September 11th.

- On September 11th there are 111 days remaining until the end of the year.
- The Hope Diamond was stolen along with other crown jewels in 1792.
- Buckingham Palace is damaged by a German air raid during WWII
- In 1941 they held a ground breaking ceremony for the US Pentagon.
- Also in WWII, in 1944 - the US Army crosses the western border into Nazi Germany.
- In 1965 the US Army, 1st Calvary Division - arrives in Vietnam.
- In 1970 the Ford Pinto is introduced.
- Pete Rose breaks Ty Cobb's career base hit record in 1985.
- 1990 President George H.W. Bush totes "New World Order" in a televised speech.
- NASA reaches Mars in 1997.
- In 1998 Bill Clinton gets slammed with accusations of 11 impeachable offenses.
- 2007, Russia tests the larges conventional weapon. The Father Of All Bombs.

Lots of people were born on September 11th and I found many birthday twins. None as special as the one that I ended up marrying of course. Happy Birthday Jon!! It's weird, sharing a birthday with your spouse. Who makes the cake? Who pays for dinner? Other September 11th birthdays include:

- D.H. Lawrence (English Novelist)
- Ferdinand Marcos (10th Philippines President)
- Tom Landry (Football Coach)
- Kristy McNicohol (from that tv show)
- Harry Connick Jr. (singer)
- Ludacris (singer/rapper)

Hold on to your socks and shoes!! Jesus may have been born on September 11th too!

It's not only the beginning of a New Year for Jon and I. It's New Year's Day in Ethiopia according to their calendar. Historically it is also New Years Day in the Coptic Calendar. Also known as the Alexandrian Calendar from ancient Egypt.

Over all, despite the obvious - September 11th is one of the coolest days ever!
