Let's play a game!

Name that tune I mean singer:
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to.
Today it's you birthday, nanana nana gonna have a good time

New question:
On this day in History:
-Edward I was proclaimed King of England
-Britain declares war on Holland
-Charles Darwin reaches Punta Gorda, sees Rio Uruguay
-Danette is born ** years ago.
What day is it???? (no cheating)

New question:
President of the United States, George Washinton proclaimed the first nation-wide celebration in America November 26, 1789 (this was not a proclamation for an annually celebrated day of Thanksgiving) 
What celebration is it?


Just kidding! Go ahead and google the date.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

    And what a gorgeous cover picture you have here. Those berries look like the ones outside my window - which the wood pigeons are very very fond of! Hope your writing is going well and all is good with you.

  8. Lots of significant things happened around this time many years ago. That's the great thing about history. As time marches on, more great things can be accounted for.

    1. Yes but all those things happened on one day- my birthday! Which was two days (on the same year) ahead of J.F.K.'s assassination. What year would that be?
