Steal This Post Thursday Meme

Got this from Michele, who got it from Ethel who got it from someone else...

Go to Wikipedia and do a search for your birthday (day and month only, exclude the year).
Post three facts, two births and one death on your blog including the years.

So here are my results...

June 24

Events (decided to pick years that were important to me)
1974 - The UPC label is used for the first time to ring up purchases at a supermarket.
1995- The New Jersey Devils sweep the Detroit Red Wings in four games in the 1995 NHL Stanley Cup finals.
1999 - The guitar with which Eric Clapton recorded Layla is sold at auction for $497,500.

Births (kind of hard because I don't recognize any of the names)
1907 - Arseny Tarkovsky, Russian poet (d. 1989)
1927 - Martin Lewis Perl, American physicist, Nobel Prize laureate

Death (used the most recent)
2005 - Paul Winchell, American voice actor and ventriloquist (b. 1922)

Melissa has now played along
