November 14: Reasons to Celebrate

On the theory that every Friday there are people desiring a reason other than “it’s Friday” to justify after-work celebrations. Here are some reasons for November 14th:

1922 – the BBC was born. Without the BBC we might not have Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (originally a radio show before it was a book).

1969 – Apollo 12 launched (2nd Manned Mission to the Moon)

1972 – the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpassed 1,000 for the first time. (May it never get that low again.)

Mozart 1719
Sherwood Schwartz – 1916 (Creator of The Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island)
Charles, Prince of Wales – 1948
Condoleeza Rice – 1954
