What A Day In History...

I cannot believe all of the things (including birthdays) that happened on this day in history. Where to begin? On this day in 1942, Anne Frank and her family began hiding from the Nazis. July 6 was the first time an Elvis Presley record was ever played on radio and it is the day in 1957 where Paul McCartney was introduced to John Lennon after John’s band played a church festival in Liverpool, England. On July 6, 1971 Louis Armstrong passed away as well. July 6, 1976 was the day that women were first inducted into the U.S. Naval Academy. The first ever Major League Baseball All-Star game was played on this day in 1933.

As if any of those events were not notable enough, check out the list of birthdays for July 6. Our President George W. Bush turns 60. Janet Leigh, Sylvester Stallone and former First Lady Nancy Reagan were born on this day. Also celebrating birthdays today are: Ned Beatty, Dalai Lama, Burt Ward (TV’s Robin), Della Reese and Merv Griffin.

However, by far, the most notable birthday on July 6 is that of my beautiful wife!! With so many famous birthdays on this date, the next question is what was so special about October 6th, assuming I did my math right.
