2 March - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month: Bloodstone

First of all Nomanda would like to thank all our new readers! We have been getting more and more of you every day and we really appreciate you! If you are enjoying Nomanda’s blog please pass it on to your friends. And if you would like to make a comment or get your own special mention on your own special day just send us the details through the comments section and we’ll make sure we don’t forget you!

Nomanda’s Happy Special Day blog is a celebration of events and anniversaries that have touched our lives. If today is your special day join us in looking at a few other events that have occurred on your day. Enjoy!

I guess that nearly everyone who has a garden has been tempted at some time to install those little automatic garden lights that charge up during the day and emit an eerie blue light at night! Well you are not alone as Nomanda is the proud owner of a set of these and when it’s dark our drive lights up like a very short airport runway at night! The first “automatic” street lamps were introduced to the lucky residents of New Milford, Connecticut on this day in 1949 and I bet they were all as chuffed as we sorry gardeners with our illuminated flower beds!

Well the hills were alive with the “Sound of Music” on this day in 1965 on the occasion of its premier. Here is one of Nomanda’s favourites from the musical!

Another premier on this day in 1989 was Madonna’s song “Like a Prayer” when her Pepsi commercial was released to the unsuspecting world! It is good, but it’s not the real thing!

If you’re stuck in space and need a doctor then call up Gates McFadden (1949) the famous Dr Beverly Crusher from the “Star Trek” series! We hope she has a great birthday bash today and doesn’t have to turn out to help any alien guests!

Jon Bon Jovi
(1962) is our next birthday guest and here is one of Nomanda’s favourites!

Our final birthday guest is the English actor Daniel Craig (1968) who did a very good job of squandering the British taxpayers’ hard earned money in “Casino Royale”. All in a good cause!

Happy Special Day to one and all!!

If you know someone who is celebrating their birthday, anniversary or a special day today or sometime soon why not send them a nice e-card so they get it as soon as they log on! Even better, why not send this page to your friend!
Don’t know what to get for a present? Think about what your special person enjoys doing and the things they like.

For Girls, I know that flowers and chocolates are a bit cliché but nevertheless they always seem to work! Of course, if your budget stretches that far, jewellery, watches, perfume and fashion items are always appreciated!

For Boys, all boys like toys! It’s just as they get older the toys get more expensive. So gadgets and gimmicky things work. Again, if you have the budget then car accessories, sporting equipment and clothes, and man type jewellery like watches and gold chains will go down very well!

And, if all else fails, you could always send them a gift voucher and they can choose whatever they want!

If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special event today I hope you got lots of cards and presents and that there is someone special in your life who will make this day a very happy and special day for you.

Happy celebrations to you from the Happy Special Day Blog!!
