29 June - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Rose

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!

Despite the fact that Sir Robert Peel was a great Prime Minister of England and the guy who formed the British police force, the falling off his horse on this day in 1850 would not normally attract Nomanda’s attention, apart from the fact that it gives me a great opportunity to introduce someone else, Blaster Bates. He was a fighter pilot in WWII and later turned his hand to bomb disposal work. After he left the forces he took his explosive skills to “civvy street” and gave colourful accounts of some of his experiences as an after dinner speaker. When I leaned about Robert Peel falling from his horse I was reminded of “The Hunt”, and if you like that one you have to listen to the “Shower of Shit Over Cheshire”! He spread it around a bit! From me to you as it were!

The Beatles first song “From Me to You” hit the UK charts on this day in 1963. The first of many #1’s!

Setting a much more sedate tone Tiny Tim’s “Tiptoe through the Tulips with Me” peaked at #17 on this day in 1968. He plays a very tiny instrument too! I don’t “Think he’s Sexy”, what do you think? However he does have “Great Balls of Fire”!

Much sexier in Nomanda’s view is the lovely Lois Chiles playing the part of Dr Holly Goodhead, starring opposite Roger Moore in the latest James Bond movie “Moonraker” that premiered in the US on this day in 1979.

Having suffered Tiny Tim’s antics it seems appropriate that another diminutive lady, Little Eva, should celebrate her birthday today (1945). Brace yourselves for the “Locomotion”!

Our final birthday wishes go to the drummer of the group Deep Purple, Ian Paice (1948). I won’t subject you to a five minute drum solo so how about a “Lazy” alternative.

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!!
