Birthday of the day: Gustav I of Sweden; Gustav I of Sweden, born Gustav Eriksson and later known as Gustav Vasa (12 May 1496 – 29 September 1560), was King of Sweden from 1523 until his death. He was the first monarch of the House of Vasa, an influential noble family which came to be the royal house of Sweden for much of the 16th and 17th centuries. Gustav I was elected regent in 1521 after leading a rebellion against Christian II of Denmark, the leader of the Kalmar Union who controlled most of Sweden at the time.
Joke of the day: Two women were comparing notes on the difficulties of running a small business. ‘I started a new practice last year,’ the first one said. ‘I insist that each of my employees take at least a week off every three months.’ ‘Why in the world would you do that?’ the other asked. She responded, ‘It’s the best way I can learn which ones I can do without.’
