This is fun in that you can save it as newspaper clipping. It shares famous celebrities that were born the same day and year, books, songs that were hits. TV shows and more. It's interesting if anything!

When I was born, bread was .19 cents a loaf and stamps were .03 cents each!!! :laughing2

What happened the day you were born?

Don't freak! :laughing2

I knew that would freak some people out! :laughing2 I'm like ..."NO WAAAAAAY", but then again,I can remeber 10 cent stamps. So there ya go.

50,000.00 HOME? hahahaa! I wish I could. Oh, DOW means the average of the blue chip stocks...industrial averages. I know the NASDAQ is made up of about 5 or 6 major companies within the states, but I'm not sure which ones.
