This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

This Day in History...

Couldn't really find too much for today so I'm just posting a few that are about a couple things that I already love - my Atlanta Braves and the Titanic.

April 8, 1974 - Baseball player Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hits his 715th career home run, breaking Babe Ruth's long standing record of 714 homers.

April 8, 1997 - The results of the first ultrasonic scan of the Titanic's bow gave researchers some revealing new information. A series of six short slits appear to be the principal damage done to the ship after it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic in 1912.
