What happened in your year Davy?

I was born in 1961, and the Berlin Wall was put up.

It got dismantled in the year my son was born !

Out of the above, I suppose the year I was born...1967

(Haven't got round to the dentures yet, but there's time...!)

Interestingly, that very month...

The 'Summer Of Love' was officially kicked off with the release of The Beatles' 'Sergeant Pepper'...

No 'Summer Of Love' to be had in the Middle East (surprise!) with the Six-Day War...

We lost both Spencer Tracy and Jayne Mansfield...

...and on the exact  day I came into effect, the very first 'cashpoint', or ATM machine was launched in Britain (apparently, the first in the world)...bet you can't guess which of us became more popular...!




I was born in 1961, and the Berlin Wall was put up.

It got dismantled in the year my son was born !


Wonderful piece of trivia...not only did the wall stand for 28 years, it was also just a shade over 28 miles long...

I chose 'year I was born' even though I don't think anything really eventful happened that year (other than my birth, of course!) ;D

:DThis thread doesn't seem to have a lot to do with 1959 the year.it IS the year Buddy Holly,Ritchie Valens,and the Big Bopper died,so it wasn't uneventful by everyone's standards.Cheers!.

I chose 'year my wisdom teeth were pulled' which was somewhere around 1979 - they gave me really good drugs, and besides, I was having waaaay too much fun in 1979... ;)
