Happy One Year Anniversary to my Blog

"Good Spirits" by John Lund

Well it has been one year ago today since I started keeping what is arguably the most boring blog on Blogger.


On July 14, 1789, during the French Revolution, citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille .

On July 14, 1798, the American Congress passed the Sedition Act, making it a federal crime to publish false, scandalous or malicious writing about the United States government.

On July 14 1881, outlaw William H. Bonney Jr., alias "Billy the Kid," was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett in Fort Sumner, N.M.

On July 14 1933, all German political parties, except the Nazi Party, were outlawed.

On July 14 1965, the American space probe Mariner 4 flew by Mars, sending back photographs of the Red Planet.

On July 14 1966, eight student nurses were murdered by Richard Speck in a Chicago dormitory.

On July 14 2007, I had Special K, Blueberries and coffee for breakfast ( does not seem quite so momentous).
