Birthday meme

it's Erica's bday so I'm hopping on the bandwagon...
September 23
Events
1.1889 - Nintendo Koppai (Later Nintendo Company, Limited) founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi to produce and market the playing card game Hanafuda.
2.1122 - Concordat of Worms
3.1962 - The Jetsons aired for the first time.

I finally got a Nintendo Wii - well it's been purchased so I threw that in there, I went to Worms last year, and who doesn't love the Jetsons.

Births

1.1930 - Ray Charles, American musician

2. 1949 - Bruce Springsteen, American singer and songwriter

3. Okay I'm only supposed to have 3 but in honor of Erica and Lizzie Borden

1869 - Mary Mallon, also known as Typhoid Mary, first carrier of typhoid (maybe this is why we are friends)

Holiday
1. In ancient Latvia, the second day of Mikeli. In honor of Latvian mittens.
