This day in history....

Take a step back to 1978.

*February 1 - A bomb explodes outside the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, Australia, killing 2 garbagemen, a policeman and several others.
*February 1 - Hollywood film director Roman Polanski skips bail and flees to France, after pleading guilty to charges of engaging in sex with a 13-year-old girl.

*February 11 - Pacific Western Airlines Flight 314, a Boeing 737-200, crashes in Cranbrook, British Columbia, killing 44 of the 50 people onboard.
*February 11 - The People's Republic of China lifts a ban on works by Aristotle, William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.
*February 15 - Serial killer Ted Bundy is captured in Pensacola, Florida.
*February 16 - The Hillside Strangler, a serial killer prowling Los Angeles, claims a 10th and final victim.
*February 16 - The first computer bulletin board system (CBBS) is created in Chicago.
*February 21 - Electrical workers in Mexico City find the remains of the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan in the middle of the city.
*February 25 - My sister, Julie, was born!

Unfortunately for her, she was the fourth child, so there aren't so many photos of her as a baby. I have even less, so I thought I'd post one that shows how cute she was as a little girl. She still smiles just like this!

She is so fun and knows how to throw a party. If she ever invites you to one, drop everything and go--it'll be worth it!

Happy Birthday Julie!
