I don't mind. These were all from my Daily Journal. I like to keep track of "historical" happenings so I write them in my date book. Then, I make trivia questions from the information for a game that I play with friends.

I'm glad you liked it. Some have printed it out for future use. I sent it to a couple of my friends on email.

Do you know what year. I heard that Rachel Welch just turned 77 years old. So I guess she was born in 1940
