You know, the strangest things have been happening today regarding April 30. I'm telling you, it's odd. First, Bubba and I were doing grammar. Now, our grammar book is just divided up into a series of lessons. Lesson 1, lesson 2, etc. We do a lesson every day. Today's lesson was on writing a friendly letter and how to make a proper heading. So, we're working on that and in the example, the date was..... you guessed it, April 30. We thought that was rather strange since it was just a coincidence that we happened to be doing that lesson today. Then, the second strange thing happened. We were studying the inauguration of George Washington in History. We are finally finishing up the Revolutionary War/ Declaration of Independence/Constitution and today we inaugurated George Washington and guess what the date of that was..... yes, it was April 30, 1789. It's all very bizarre. It's like the planets are aligning or something. So, I thought I'd see what else has happened in history on April 30, and this is what I came up with....
** in 1989 the U.S. beat Costa Rica 1-0 in the third round of the World Cup in soccer.
** in 1962 Willie Mays hit 4 home runs
** in 1952 Mr. Potato Head was the first toy advertised on television
** in 1900 U.S. annexes Hawaii
** in 1838 Nicaragua declared independence from the Central American Federation
** in 1888 hailstones kill 250 people in Delhi, India
** 1492 Columbus is given the royal commission to equip his fleet.
So, there you have it. All these things happened on April 30. I'm not sure if any of these things will change your life much, but it may earn you an extra point next time you play Trivial Pursuit.
Have a wonderful day!
