I don't know what the reason for that could be, Whiskers.  Some of the images & smilies have been playing up a bit lately - and some other forums have reported problems concerning their avatars (although I've not seen any problem there on KK's)  Apart from that, I've not had notification of any other problems with the board.
If the problem persists with you, please do let it be known so it can be investigated further and hopefully get sorted.  (If you have problems again with your posts coming out on the forum, you could perhaps let us know by posting about it in the Shoutbox.

No.  Sliced bread was a couple of years before Birdseye.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sliced_bread
Otto Frederick Rohwedder of Davenport, Iowa, USA invented the first loaf-at-a-time bread-slicing machine. A prototype he built in 1912 was destroyed in a fire[2] and it was not until 1928 that Rohwedder had a fully working machine ready. The first commercial use of the machine was by the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri, which produced their first slices on July 7, 1928.[3]

@Whiskers wrote:England establishes 30 mph speed limit for towns and villages  1935

I wouldn't have thought there was that much speeding going on in the 1930's - but going by this article "Auto Safety History", it seems was quite a problem at that time (in America anyway):

http://amhistory.si.edu/onthemove/themes/story_86_1.html

In the 1910s, speeding, reckless driving, collisions, and pedestrian fatalities were new problems requiring new solutions. The first remedies comprised a social response focused on controlling and improving driver behavior. By the early 1920s, the National Safety Council compiled accident statistics, held conferences, and sponsored Safety Week campaigns in cities in the hope that increased public awareness would promote careful driving. Controlling driver behavior through laws, fines, signals, and drunk driving arrests were obvious ways to decrease the fatality rate.

Americans were slow to understand the importance of redesigning automobiles to make driving safer. At first, the automobile was perceived as a neutral device that merely responded to a driver’s commands and could not cause an accident. But by the late 1920s, manufacturers acknowledged that design flaws compromised safety. They introduced a technological response to safety issues, adding shatter-resistant windshields and four-wheel brakes instead of two-wheel brakes.

In the 1930s, this approach evolved into a market response as auto makers actively promoted new safety improvements such as all-steel bodies and hydraulic brakes.

Yesterday (20th March) - World Cup stolen while on exhibition at Central Hall in Westminster, London  1966

Several days of anxiety and frustration followed the Cup's theft.

Brazil said it was a sacrilege that would never have been committed in Brazil where even its thieves loved football too much.

But the trophy was eventually found by Pickles, a mongrel dog, out for a walk with his owner, on 27 March in south London.

Later that year it was England who won the World Cup, but in 1970 Brazil was allowed to keep the trophy for ever, after winning the competition for the third time.

The replacement trophy remains the prize for the World Cup to this day.

The Jules Rimet cup was stolen again in 1983 - in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It has never been recovered.

I can't find anything very interesting for today --- but Euro Disney opened in Paris on the 12th 1992.

There's a real bad story for tomorrow (15th), which I remember well. It happened in 1989 in the U.K.
Can anyone predict what tomorrows TDIH is going to be?

Hmmm ... Might be more appropriate to name it Shakespeare Day. After all, William Shakespeare's legacy has done more for England than the dragon-slaying guy called George.

I mean ... really ..... what has this story got to do with the England of today? Huh?

If they did even have a dance at all, I'm sure the media would've reported it up ..... somewhere ....
