12 March - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Flower of the Month


Gemstone of the Month: Bloodstone

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!

First of all Nomanda would like to apologise to all those smokers out there who I forgot to remind that yesterday was “Non Smoking Day”, in the UK at least! As I completely forgot all about it I also forgot to take a day off smoking, not that I would have bothered anyway!

On this day in 1935 the 30mph speed limit in towns and villages was introduced in England. It was probably not necessary then and is still ignored now! There’s recently been talk of reducing the present 60 mph limit on “country” roads down to 50mph. Speed limits are fine as long as drivers stick to them. Sadly there are a number of drivers who won’t keep to the speed limits and no matter how onerous the penalties will just carry on ignoring them. Silly Sods!

Today’s birthday boy is the scary bassist from the group Iron Maiden, Steve Harris (1957). This is one of Nomanda’s favourites!

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!!
