All sorts of things have taken place on 22nd August .......

For example:

1642 - The English Civil War began when Charles I called Parliament and its soldiers traitors. 

1827 - Composer Josef Strauss was born. 

1862 - Composer Achille-Claude Debussy was born. 

1959 - Director of the Centre for Fortean Zoology, Jonathan Downes,  was born. (Hey, I know him!)

1964 - Liberty Records reported the album "The Chipmunks Sing the Beatles" was selling 25,000 copies a day. 

Happy Birthday, dearest husband of mine.

And to mark this occasion, how could I resist offering you one of the songs on that 25,000 copy-a-day album?
