Worries about the economy…

25 03 2008

Well, just like everyone else, I’m worried about what’s happening with our economy.  I’m practically pulling all the jobs I can, while I can, to save up some extra money, just in case.   That’s why there haven’t been a lot of posts lately….

So I apologize for that.  But, back to more Useless Tidbits!  So today is my ex’s birthday, so I thought I would post some interesting facts about this particular day in history.  I find it rather interesting that on this day, there was so much brutal murders and disasters.  Hmmm, maybe that should have told me something….

1947 A coal mine explosion in Centralia, Ill., killed 111 people.
1975 King Faisal of Saudi Arabia was shot to death by a nephew with a history of mental illness.
1988 Robert E. Chambers Jr. pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the death of 18-year-old Jennifer Levin in New York City’s so-called “preppie murder case.”
1990 Fire raced through an illegal social club in New York City, killing 87 people, most of them Honduran and Dominican immigrants.
1992 Cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev returned to Earth from the Mir space station after a 10-month stay, during which his native country, the Soviet Union, ceased to exist.
