10 Strange But True World-Changing Facts That Happened on March 30

By Michelle Carr Crowe, Silicon Valley real estate guide selling homes in San Jose

What do anesthesia, Alaska and Florida have in common? All three share an important anniversary today, March 30.

Are you an inquisitive person who enjoys learning? If you’ve read my blog, you know one of the pastimes I enjoy is discovering new facts and interesting pieces of history.

I like to share intriguing stories from our local newspaper the San Jose Mercury News, as well as my favorite print and online magazinesMental Floss, the National Geographic Society or  Smithsonian Magazine. Other times I find articles or facts online at Wikipedia,The History Place, orDates In History.These events for today’s blog post are primarily from Brainy History.

While these interesting items are intriguing, they have nothing to do with my real estate business, helping people like you buy and sell homes in Silicon Valley, Calif. and beyond. I admit, they just add fun and fascination to life.

Here are today’s 10 strange but true events that happen to have their anniversary on today’s date, March 30, 2013. I hope you find them interesting, too.

Hey Michelle! My two favorite stores ... Alaska purchase and President Reagan. My ex-boss use to be the commander or whatever over the troop that Reagan kept on hand. He had many pictures with him and the president. Those were two great people.
