I'll try this again!

I had this post all typed out, links all added, all ready to go, last night. Then I couldn't post it! My blog is not cooperating with me lately!

First, you may notice the Dye-O-Rama button on the sidebar. Scout has been dyeing all this beautiful yarn and she wants to draw others into her addiction. :-) So, I joined. I mean, who doesn't need another addiction???

Second, I saw this meme on Vicki's blog (yesterday, I think) and thought it was cool. Here's how it works.

Do a Wikipedia search of your birthdate, minus the year; list three interesting events, three people who were born, and three people who died on that day.

3 Events
1876 - Alexander Graham Bell is granted a patent for an invention he calls the telephone.
1969 - Golda Meir elected as the first female Prime Minister of Isreal.
2005 - Mass protest outside the National Assembly of Kuwait building for women's voting rights in Kuwait.

3 Births
1946 - Peter Wolf, American musician (J Geils Band)
1952 - Ernie Isley, American guitarist (the Isley Brothers)
1952 - Lynn Swann, American football player (and running for PA Governor)

3 Deaths
322BC - Aristolte, philosopher
1967 - Alice B. Toklas, American companion to Gertrude Stein
1986 - Jacob Javits, American politician

Now I'm off to play in the sunshine/warm weather! MAKE it a great day!
