Janis Joplin died on this date, but it was only 42 years ago. I remember that.

Sorry, I was only 7 months old then. :-)
Life would be a million times better if there were Pinatas strategically placed throughout the day.

I remember my parents seeing in the local paper (Winnipeg Tribune) the times it it would be coming over and we all trooped outside to see a tiny blinking star that moved across the sky while the other stars all stayed in their places. Not really impressive to a small boy!

I was 6 1/2 months in utero at the time. Things were quite good for me then.

But I must say, you were born in a great year.

I'll never forget it. I worked with a school curriculum director late 50s, early 60s. Seemed like every other sentence out of his mouth was "on October 4, 1957 when Sputnik I went up". Of course, I also remember because I was in the fall semester of my senior year in college. Because it's burned in my mind, that's why I asked. Glad those of you who aren't old enough to remember were smart enough to look it up.
