7 March - Historical Events and Special Celebrations

Gemstone of the Month


Flower of the Month: Daffodil

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!

On the Nomanda scale of exciting events on this day in history it would rate around a one, and that’s just for the day turning!

Henry VIII would choose this day in 1530 to ask the Pope for a divorce and when refused he goes and declares himself as the supreme head of the Church in England. Despite his well known personal problems he set the scene for a lot of other mischief over time!

You know that it’s not a very exciting day when the Charles Miller makes it onto these hallowed pages for patenting on this day in 1854 the first machine to make buttonholes of all things!

And finally in memory of those long boring family get togethers it was on this day in 1933 that the game of “Monopoly” was invented. It can however prove to be an interesting way of getting to know just how tight fisted and miserable some of your relations are when they insist on their pittance of rent for landing on “Old Kent Road” when you’ve just ran out of cash!

The composer of the haunting melody in his piece “Bolero” Joseph-Maurice Ravel (1875 – 1937) is our first birthday celebrity today. Any excuse to play it again is a good one!

One of the most prolific run scorers of all time, the West Indian Viv Richards (1952) is our next birthday guest. Even the fastest of Test Match bowlers respected his talents and were glad to come off when Viv was at the crease!

The very funny comedian Rik Mayall (1958) is our next birthday boy. I’m not sure whether I prefer his “Bottom” or “B’Stard” character best!

Our final birthday wishes go to the lovely English actress Rachel Weisz (1971) who won an award for her brilliant performance in “The Constant Gardener”.

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!!
