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?
