What A Coincidence!

Post by SonjaMarie » Wed August 25th, 2010, 7:00 pm

I just started a book on Ippolito d'Este, the 2nd son of Lucretia Borgia, who became a cardinal. As it turns out he was born Aug 25, 1509, exactly 501 years ago today!

Something similar ...... this past April I was in Washington, DC and visited Ford's Theater -- where President Lincoln was shot -- on April 14. The exact day he was shot, 145 years later. It wasn't on purpose, it just happened that way.........
