on this day in history

India gained independence
While Roswell gained fame
And 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

But not all was glum
For My Fair Lady won the Oscars
And The Sound of Music premiered

We Are The World

Strange year it was
When the FCC gave a morning session
To The Wireless Access To The Internet
In The Commission Room
At 9.00am

And Y2K was the buzzword

Yet frozen in time for me
I am almost embarrassed to admit

Diana's wedding, and on the day she died
I was thinking what it would be like
If it was MJ

For Thursday Think Tank
which is making headlines


  1. Ahhhhh.......thanks for the memories! Sigh. Such a good read!

  2. Interesting to read the headlines on the different dates. One is my birth year and the last is the year my son passed away. We have our Life headlines don't we.
