Happy 49th,Tim!
If this is your wedding anniversary, congratulations! You share the same date with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. They were married in Rayville, Louisana, in 1996, the same day as Tim's Swampstock benefit concert. In attendance are fellow artists Mark Collie, Tracy Lawrence, Mark Chesnutt and Jeff Carson. Happy 19th, Tim & Faith!
This Is Mad Hatter Day!
Despite being a silly day, the selection of the date was actually quite logical. The Mad Hatter wears a top hat. On the front of the hat is a slip of paper with "10/6" written on it. The paper is believed to be an order to make the hat, and that it costs ten shillings sixpence.
Here's an interesting fact for you: In the 8th Century, mercury was used in hat making in a process called "carroting". Mercury poisoning drove some hatters crazy (mad).
