22 November - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month: Topaz

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!

One of the sexiest pieces of classical music, Ravel's “Bolero” was performed for the first time in this day in 1928. Lovers of the music and ice skating will enjoy another look at Torvill and Dean's perfect performance!

Another piece of modern music displeased the “Mummies” at the BBC who on this day in 1967 officially banned “I Am the Walrus” by the Beatles. Well Nomanda thinks that’s as good a reason as any for hearing it again!

On the same day that President George Bush the elder was visiting the American troops in Saudi Arabia no doubt to deliver a motivating speech about how good a job they were doing and how much their country appreciated them putting their lives on the line, his best friend Margaret Thatcher was packing her bags and moving out of number 10. It didn’t come soon enough for Nomanda who by this time had decided to leave the country!

The guy who had no Auntie but a fearsome UNCLE, Robert Vaughn (1932) is our first birthday celebrity today.

The frightening Jamie Lee Curtis (1958) will be spooking her friends at her birthday bash!

Our final birthday celebrity is the lovely Corinne Russell (1963) who not only managed to bring a sparkle to the “Benny Hill Show”, she was also a regular page 3 girl for the Sun newspaper and is a mean darts player as well!

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!!
