I've been tagged twice......

so I'll do them both today.

First I was tagged by Carol at Blog Virgin, who was tagged by Knowley Powley , to put my birthday (18th November) into Wikepedia and come up with the following.

Three Events
1307 - According to legend, William Tell shoots an apple off his son's head
1493 - Christopher Columbus first sights what is now Puerto Rico.
1926 - George Bernard Shaw refuses to accept the money for his Nobel Prize, saying, "I can forgive Alfred Nobel for inventing dynamite, but only a fiend in human form could have invented the Nobel Prize."

Two Birthdays
1901 - George Gallup, American statistician and opinion pollster
1924 - Alexander Mackenzie Stuart, Baron Mackenzie-Stuart, president of the European Court of Justice

One Death
1969 - Ted Heath, British musician and bandleader

One Holiday
Latvia - Independence Day

I now tag Early-bird, aka-nik and Diana Joy, hope you don’t mind.


Yesterday mrsnesbitt tagged me as one of her 5 favourite blogs – how lovely.

Now I have to choose five, which is difficult because I have so many! Please don’t feel left out if I don’t choose you.

Queenie – my bestest friend in the whole world and she’s to blame for me blogging.

Annelisa – she is the most talented photographer and a beautiful person.

Cream – I love his tales about his restaurants and his doodles, yes I said doodles as in scribblings, drawings…..

Claire – affectionately known as Miss Whiplash.

Mist1 – because this is the funniest blog in the world. Not just her posts but her replies to comments. Be warned do not take a mouthful of fluid or food whilst reading – you will choke!!!

I hope you will join in, good luck choosing your five it’s really difficult.

My knee

I can't choose five blogs...are you kidding me?

I love blogs, but I think I love bloggers even more. I'm not sure that I can pick five.

I seriously read a lot of blogs each day. I am too ashamed to admit just how many because you'll think, "damn, Mist needs a hobby."

Hi Josh, you think so? Ok next time I get tagged you're it!!! :)

Queenie said...

Done it, why did you let 'mist1' off and not me. Wish I'd have known 'josh' isn't a moaning minnie like me and I would have tagged him, to late now.
I'm going to get you for this, just you wait and see....

Linda said...

I don't think I could choose just 5 blogs either as it would be way too hard to pick favorites!

Glad to hear you're taking it slowly and not out doing cartwheels!
