Welcome to HALF-BUTT SATURDAY!!!

Creatively bankrupt as I am today... after a long week at work and many odd situations to handle, I have decided that today, I'm going to WASTE TIME!!! After all, in some ways, isn't that what the series of tubes that make up the interweb are all about... so, allow me to share with you, thanks to Wiki, ten amazing things that happened in history on THIS DATE! (March 29th)...


#10 On this day, in 1867, Queen Victoria gave Royal Assent to the British North America Act which established the Dominion of Canada on July 1st of that year! (Consider this the "act" that produced the birth of my nation... man, that sounds icky...)

#9 Speaking of births, Cy Young (a famed American baseball player) was born on the exact same day... (same year too!) I think it's safe to assume that Queen Victoria did not have anything to do with that.

#8 However, some years later on this day in 1871, she did open The Royal Albert Hall.

#7 On this date, in 1461, in England again, we had the Battle of Towton where Edward of York defeated Queen Margaret to become King. Apparently, it's good to be the king.

#6 Today's the day, way back in 1886 that Dr John Pemberton brewed the first batch of Coca-Cola in a backyard. Caffeine for everyone!

#5 Happy Birthday to Lucy Lawless who's ONE YEAR YOUNGER than Sue and myself... but we won't hold it against her... much.

#4 Today is also "Día del joven combatiente"... a remembrance day celebrated with civil disorder in Chile by leftists and anarchists. Sounds like fun.

#3 On this day in 1882, The Knights of Columbus were established... marking the first time someone said, No, we are NOT the Shriners!

#2 In 1058, Pope Stephen IX passed away. I heard they didn't even televise the funeral!

#1 Way back in 1632 on this very day, the Treaty of Saint-Germain was signed, returning Quebec to French control after the English had seized it in 1629... Many in Canada would like to return certain Quebec citizens to France now... if we can get another treaty going...

BONUS ...and it's Earth Day... and yup, we ARE doing the "Lights Out" routine at 8pm. Sue did a post on it.
