5 October - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Calendula

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!

In another relatively quiet day of things that interest Nomanda it was on this day in 1962 that the Beatles released their very first record “Love Me Do”. Well we did and they went on to record many more great songs that only made us love them more

It was on this day in 1969 that “Monty Python” was first shown on the BBC. It was to become a cult classic and has spawned numerous shows, films and books all doing very nicely thank you for the original cast members! There are lots of clips to choose from and here is one of Nomanda’s favourites!

The Australian actress Diane Cilento (1933) was born in Brisbane on this day. Apart from being married to Sean Connery for 11 years she is probably best known for her performance in the “Wicker Man”. She’s obviously had an interesting life as demonstrated in her autobiography published in 2006 entitled “My Nine Lives”!

The “Space Cowboy”, Steve Miller (1943) will be celebrating his birthday today with a few of his ET mates!

Karen Allen (1951) will be raiding the fridge to get everything organised for her birthday bash today. I just hope there aren’t any old relics lurking in the contents!

Living in the tennis shadow of her better known sister Nomanda thinks that we should send Jeanne Evert (1957) a special birthday wish today!

Our final birthday wishes go to the lovely English actress Kate Winslet (1975). She’s made some great films and received numerous award nominations in her short life so far. We wish her the very best for the future!

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!!
