Today Is Ginger Nut Day

Coming in second to Jaffa Cakes, the Ginger Nut is my second most favourite treat.

 

You can have them dunked in your coffee or tea, or see how strong your teeth are by just biting down on one.

Today also marks the beginning of the second part of the year. Have you held true to your New Years resolution?

 

Well we also have Christmas In July in many countries, so now is your second chance at doing what you resolved to do at the beginning of the year.

On July 1st, 1961 Sandringham, England saw the birth of a child who was to grow up to work in child care as a Kindergarten Assistant.

 

She then would then go on to marry into royalty and become one of the most influential and most loved women the world has ever seen.

 

Princess Diana will always be remembered in the hearts of people world-wide.

Today also marks the day when Hong Kong was returned to China in 1997.

 

The event actually happened at Midnight on July 1st and was attended by British PM Tony Blair, Prince Charles, the Chinese President Jiang Zemin, and the U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

 

There was a protest held by some thousands of Hong Kongers, but that made no difference and the handover went through without any serious incident.
