    Was he really fiddling?

    Hey, folks,

    On this day, in the year 49 CE, there was a huge fire in Rome. Some say Nero literally played the fiddle while he watched the city being consumed. I'm a little skeptical.

    And in 1545, the Mary Rose sank off England. Believe it or not, they raised her a few years ago, and found many woodworking tools on board.

    In 1870, France declared war on Prussia. They lost.

    In 1893, Vladimir Mayakovsky, a poet no-one has ever heard of, was born in Georgia. Not the Georgia in the south, the one in Asia, near the Black Sea.

    And on this date, a mere 29 years ago, our own Darren Wright was born, somewhere in the US.

    Or so he claims!

    Happy Birthday, Darren!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Happy Birthday Darren.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Wow, I sure hope your mom had AC back then... It's hot enough in July, let alone being pregnant at the same time!

    Happy Day, Darren!
