31 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!

The guy who put fast foods into the bellies of the hungry, Ray Kroc, liked this particular day in history. Having developed the “McDonald” franchise from the early 1960’s by this day in 1975 he had amassed enough cash to buy the San Diego Padres. They are a Californian baseball team for those readers not up to American stuff! He went on to celebrate this day by opening the first “McDonald’s” in Moscow in 1990. It is the world’s biggest “McDonald’s”! I know that Russian food doesn’t have a great reputation but surely they can put something better on their plates than a “Big Mac”!

The evergreen Barry Manilow celebrates this day in 1975 when one of his classics, “Mandy”, went gold! He looks a lot younger in this clip!

Debbie Harry was in danger of getting her underclothes wet on this day in 1981. “The Tide Is High” went to the #1 spot and everyone earned enough from it not to care whether or not their knickers got wet or not! Keep holding on, Debbie!

The English award winning actress Jean Simmons in our first birthday celebrity today. Although the awards were for films made long ago the “Thorn Birds” and “Guys and Dolls” still remain classics.

Another English actress, Minnie Driver (1971) is our other birthday guest today and we hope she has a good time at her birthday bash hunting down dear old Will!

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!!
