On this day in 793, Vikings raided the abbey at Lindisfarne. In 1789, the US Bill of Rights was ratified. And in 1949, George Orwell's 1984 was published. Celebrating birthdays today: Nancy Sinatra is still walkin' in those boots, Colin Baker, Bonnie Tyler, Mick Hucknall*, Nick Rhodes, Juliana Margulies, Derek Trucks and Javier Mascherano. Today is Bounty Day on Norfolk Island. (Damn, makes me want a Bounty candy bar...)
*I'm not making this up: I typed that as Mick Yucknall at first. Almost let it stand.
