Quote of the day: All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. by Walt Disney

Philippa of England

Philippa of England

Birthday of the day: Philippa of England; Philippa of England (4 June 1394 – 7 January 1430), also known as Philippa of Lancaster and Philippa Plantagenet, was the Queen of Denmark, Sweden and Norway from 1406 to 1430. She was the consort to King Eric of Pomerania, the de-facto regent of Sweden in 1420 and the regent of Denmark and Norway from 1423 to 1425.

Joke of the day: A pilot landed a plane with a rather bumpy landing. As part of his job he was required to stand by the terminal door and say goodbye to the passengers as they exited the airplane. He was afraid that someone might say something about his rather less than perfect landing, but everyone left without saying a word except for one passenger, an elderly lady, she slowly approached the pilot after most passengers had exited the plane and asked, ‘Did we land? Or were we shot down?’

Thought of the day: Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.
