Month: February 2012

February 29th

It's February 29th today; leap day. I read a newspaper article today about a 92 year old woman who has only had 23 birthdays. It must be strange having a birthday on this day; I suppose you can just celebrate on March 1, but personally I'd still find it odd.

Happy anniversary, John Glenn.

50 years ago today, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth. Impressively, Glenn, now 90 years old, gave a talk on the subject today. Happy 50th anniversary, John! https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/at-ohio-state-john-glenn-to-chat-with-space-station-mark-50-years-since-his-historic-orbit/2012/02/20/gIQA3OtEPR_story.html?utm_term=.17f55b58c300
