I watched the Steelers game!!!

wow I was born in 1957 too. but, I think some of this information is incorrect.

Because I remember very clearly that JFK was assinated in 1964 and then there was LBJ.

Gerald ford might have been a senator but I do believe that Eisenhower was the president.

Now I don't have to play because we're both the same year!!

I'm sorry Shinade, but I do think you read the date wrong. It's not 1957 but 1975. ;) I am 32 years old. That would be why it didn't seem right :)

If you asked my daughter, she'd say the year I was born (1970) was when the dinosaurs went extinct.

You have a great blog & I've nominated you for an award at my blog. Enjoy & keep up the great work.

Jimmy Hoffa still hasn't surfaced. I was in my 20s when you were born. Thanks for playing along. Have a great day. :)

Leslie said...

OH COOL!!!! I put that on my blog also, the year you were born thing. Though I am so new at this blogging thing how the heck do you do the hyper links?? like yours just say the name, not the whole URL like how mine turns out! any help would be great!! I feel like a retard!! lol Thanks!!

Do you use blogspot? It probably is pretty similar to here even if you don't. On here I just type the name of the site...then I highlight what I typed, click the picture at the top of the screen I'm typing on that I believe resembles a globe with a paper clip. haha Or so I think. If you hover over the little icons at the top you'll see it says insert link. You click it, a screen pops up, copy and paste the link from the page you want to link to. That's it :)

Yes, I use blogspot. I will try it tomorrow, it's late here in Utah right now. I need to get to bed to be able to function tomorrow. ! thanks for your help!!
