What was happening on the day you were born?

It has been a super busy weekend and day, today. So, to relax a little I stumbled upon the website Take Me Back. I’m big into numerology, astrology, and just finding the significance my birth date, birth place, culture and how it influences who I am today. I guess it boils down to my obsession with the nostalgic feeling of what was. 🙂

Here’s what was happening on the day I was born.

*All this information is coming from the Take Me Back to web page.

It was Monday, under the sign of Libra. The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Miss You Much by Janet Jackson.
