Birthday Meme

Still sick... will catch up with the comments and mail as soon as I'm completely well. So, having said that, here's another meme:

Look up your birthday in Wikipedia. Pick 4 events, 3 births, 2 deaths, and 1 holiday.

NOVEMBER 9

Events:

1620 – Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower sight land at Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
1921 – Albert Einstein is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work with the photoelectric effect.
1967 – First issue of Rolling Stone Magazine is published.
1989 – Cold War: Fall of the Berlin Wall. Communist-controlled East Germany opens checkpoints in the Berlin Wall allowing its citizens to travel to West Germany. This key event led to the eventual reunification of East and West Germany.
