March 28, What a Special Day!

It’s March 28th.  Today is the 88th day of the year, since it’s a leap year, and there are 278 days left in 2012.

On this date in 1920, there was a major Palm Sunday tornado outbreak in the Great Lakes and the Deep South;  in 1979, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania partially melted down; and in 2005, an earthquake rocked Indonesia with a magnitude of 8.7.  This was the fourth strongest quake since 1965.

However, this date is known for other things.

It was on this date 57 years ago that my idol, Reba McEntire, was born in Kiowa, Oklahoma.

Also, today, Lady Gaga turns 26 years old.

And, it was on this date, back in 1964 that my parents married.  It’s hard to believe that if they were alive today, it would have been their 48th anniversary.

Happy birthday Reba and Lady Gaga and Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Here’s a piece of cake in your honor!
