24 hours and counting!

Tomorrow will mark my wife's birthday. 29 again. I will not say how many 29th birthdays she has had, but this is not the first!

The issue is a point of fun around our family but it is really a moot point as my wife like her mother and grandmother before her ages at 1/2 the rate of a normal person! Scientist should really research their gene pool!

So for all of you who know Chrissy, feb 4th is her special day and as a tribute to my history nerd wife here a list of other, far less significant events that happened on Her day!

1783: England officially proclaims an end to hostilities in America

1938:Adolf Hitler takes command of the German Army

1945:Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin meet at Yalta in the Crimea to discuss plans for the defeat of the Axis powers and to decide on the post-war future
