Steal this meme:

Wikibirthday to you.
"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 that match your birth date including the years."

Here are my facts:
1170 - Thomas Becket is slain in his own cathedral by knights eager to please Henry II of England.
1937 - The Irish Free State is replaced by a new state called Ireland with the adoption of a new constitution.
1997 - Hong Kong begins to kill all the nation's chickens (1.25 million) to stop the spread of a potentially deadly influenza strain.

Two births:
1721 - Madame de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV of France (d. 1764)
1972 -
Jude Law, British actor

One death:
2003 - Bob Monkhouse, English comedian and game show host (b. 1928)
