Chiefbiscuit from as it happens has tagged me for 'What Happened on Your Birthday'? This entails going to Wikipedia to find 3 events, 2 birthdays, 1 death and 1 holiday that happened on your birth date - that is, month and date (not necessarily the same year). Then you must tag 5 other bloggers.

On my birthday: 23rd September

2002 - Mozilla Firefox (Phoenix) web browser is born: version 0.1.

Shared b'days:

the most memorable thing about my birth date (other than me, of course! Hehehehe!) is that it is Armistice Day...11th November.

And that Colonel David Hackworth shared the same date. He was the most highly decorated US soldier. He died in May 2005. I was fortunate enough to get to know him and become a friend when he lived here in Aus for a few years. Incredible person. He was laid to rest at Arlington.
