3 March - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Daffodil

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!

It was on this day in 1634 that the far sighted Samuel Cole opened the first tavern in Boston. I hope it wasn’t the same one that refused Nomanda a late night coffee as described a couple of days ago! In 1656 a law was passed in Massachusetts requiring every town to have a tavern or the town would be fined! That’s more like it! But you still have to let people in!

Two “Kings” featured on this day in history. The first was “King Kong” on the premier of the film on this day in 1933. The second was the “King” himself who on this day in 1955 made his first TV appearance much to the delight of all his screaming fans who were able to do their screaming in the comfort of their own living rooms!

The song “My Girl” by the Temptations went to the #1 spot on this day in 1965 and if you’re tempted to listen to it here it is! They don’t come like this any more, thank goodness I hear you say!

Camilla Parker Bowles
chose this day in 1995 to get her divorce and thus making way for you know who to pop the question! Nomanda wishes them well!

Our first birthday celebrity today is Alexander Graham Bell (1847 – 1922) the inventor of the telephone. It changed the world as we know it! Where would we be today without Bell’s invention? Can you imagine a world without ‘phones, without the internet and without free downloads?

Our next birthday celebrity, James Doohan (1920 – 2005) knew a thing or two about the ether and its possibilities in his role as Montgomery Scott in the Star Trek series. “Scottie” has been “beamed up” and is gone but not forgotten.

Looking for stuff in space must be like searching for a needle in a haystack sometimes so let’s send our birthday greetings to Mike Pender (1942) from the group the Searchers and get their make on the job!

Our final birthday boy is the Irishman Ronan Keating (1977) from the group Boyzone and here is one of Nomanda’s favourites from them!

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!!
