If this is your birthday, congratulations! You share the same date as, Michelle Branch, born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1983. After first establishing herself as a Grammy-winning pop singer, she shifts to country in 2006 by joining with Jessica Harp to form the duo The Wreckers. Happy 32nd, Michelle! 

Today Is World UFO Day!


The date for this special day was chosen because it is the date of the Roswell Incident, a historical event leading to wide speculation and belief that aliens have indeed visited us.

On this date, July 1947, Mac Brazel, a rancher in northwest of Roswell, New Mexico discovered wreckage of a metallic object on his ranch. The wreckage and the metal it was made of was strange. He contacted military authorities who investigated the site, and removed the wreckage. The first military reports referenced a mysterious, Unidentified Flying Object. These reports were later rescinded, leading to wide speculation and claims of a massive government cover-up of  the discovery of UFOs from outer space. It also sparked fear of a UFO invasion and rumors of other incidents. That speculation is alive and well today.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
