Today is my birthday, which I share with one of my favorite painters, Edgar Degas. He, by the way, is 125 years older than I.
Anyhoo, I went to "This Day in History" to look at some interesting facts, and found it was the same day that:
Lady Jane Grey was deposed.
The Rosetta Stone was found.
Morgan's Raiders were defeated at Buffington Island (Charlie, that one's for you).
Happy July 19th! And happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me...
