29 January - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Carnation

When it is your happy special day and whether you are celebrating a birthday or special anniversary, if you would like a mention on Nomanda’s blog just send us the details. We promise you a very special mention on this blog on your special day!

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!

Lovers of the innocent and simple things in life, and it doesn’t get more innocent or more simple than animated cartoons, will join Nomanda in celebrating the release on this day in 1959 of Walt Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty”. Here’s one of Nomanda’s favourite clips!

Translation is a difficult job. Nomanda knows because we’ve done a bit in our time and it is one of the most challenging tasks we’ve ever undertaken! Getting the correct words and phrases can be very tricky and lots of things lose their original meaning in translation. Proving the point on this day in 1964 were the Beatles who recorded in German “Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand” and “Sie Leibt Dich”. You have to agree they’re just not the same!

Wanting to hold the hand of “Wonder Woman” was layer Robert Altman who married the lovely actress Lynda Carter on this day in 1984. Being a layer I’m sure that he had a decent pre-nup clause in the marriage contract just in case he didn’t cut the mustard!

Not wanting to share his hand with the tax man the preacher Gene Profeta pleaded guilty to tax evasion on this day in 1989. Well done, Gene! Confession is good for the soul or so we are led to believe! Interesting word, that, con- fession!

Our first birthday celebrity today is the actor Tom Selleck (1945). I wouldn’t mind betting that there’ll be a Magnum or two of the bubbly stuff at his bash!

Black billionaire talk show host Oprah Winfrey (1954) will be celebrating her birthday in style today. I don’t think Nomanda will be on the guest list which is fine with me!

The actress Kelly Packard (1975) will no doubt be patrolling the beaches on the lookout for any swimmers in distress before she starts her birthday bash! Why can’t she see me waving at her? Over here, Kelly!

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!!
