Good Day!

On April 15...

... 1912 - The Titanic sank off the coast of Newfoundland on its maiden voyage after it struck an iceberg.

...1947 - Jackie Robinson became the first African-American player in Major League Baseball when he stepped onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn to compete for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

...1955 - Ray Kroc acquired McDonald's and opened his first restaurant in Des Plaines, Ill.

...1956 - The worlds’ first, all-color TV station was dedicated. It was WNBQ-TV in Chicago and is now WMAQ-TV.

...1981 - This happy little guy was born!

By the way, I share a birthday with this guy, this guy, and this girl!

Also, in true Utah weather form, it snowed again on my birthday. Sadly, this is not uncommon.



  1. Happy Birthday!

    I share my birthday with Kenny G. There's no beating that.

  2. ... wait, just kidding. It's Michael Bolton. lol

  3. Happy Birthday, My wonderful Barry! You have entertained us with your humor, astounded us with your talent and loved us unconditionally for 28 years! I love you! mom

  4. Ok, so I wasn't creative on facebook and I didn't write you a poem nor wish you a Happy Birthday on your wall. HOWEVER I did wish you a Happy Birthday in MY status...that counts for something right? Aside from that how can I forget someone's birthday that I have known my whole life?!?! Hope you had a great day and HAPPY BIRTHDAY my friend!

  5. Ahh, just look at that cute little guy, cootchi cootchi coo!
