What happened on October 6th?

JFK museum - South Boston, MA

6th October, 1961: President John F. Kennedy advises American families to build bomb shelters to protect them from atomic fallout in the event of a nuclear war. Many Americans did prepare for nuclear war by buying up canned goods and building backyard bomb shelters. Also at the time many home builders offered a bomb shelter as part of new home packages.


Yankee Stadium hall of fame

6th October, 1926: Babe Ruth sets new record in World Series with three home runs and a 10-5 win over the Cardinals.

6th October, 1966: The hallucinogic drug LSD is declared illegal in the United States. LSD is a Schedule I drug making it illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, process or distribute LSD without a DEA license.

6th October, 2009: my first post was published in this blog!! I can't believe it has been one year already; I am very honored and touched by the comments and support received along this year; in 365 days I can proudly count 60 followers, 81 posts, several image changes (on my blog that is), but foremost, many many blog  friends I've found (and that have found me) via the blogger community.
In case you are wondering what did I post on my first day:

THANK YOU ALL!!!!     


  1. Thank you, Olga for all your beautiful posts. It's been such an honor getting to know you. As I read the two posts you suggested and remember others, I see your many dimensions. I hope you keep writing always, your spirit is too precious to keep to yourself.

    Congratulations! A year well spent!

  2. Okay, Olga...I was wondering if you were just noting some interesting happenings on this day, and kept reading, thinking it was a great idea to look back on history once in a while, until I got to the end. What a great way to celebrate the year. I'm a "newborn" blogger--began this summer. However, already I am hooked on the community I'm connecting with.

    Happy Birth on the Blog Day!

    (I had no idea LSD was, once upon a time, legalized)

  9. Happy Blogaversary!!!

    I am a new follower from Friday Follow Over 40. Would appreciate it if you could stop by and follow back.

    I am giving a Mrs Santa Claus apron away to one of my followers on December 5.

  10. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! So how does it feel?

    I'm here from Follow Forty....


  11. Oh, congratulations dear OJ! I was like Sioux...thinking what an interesting post...and then's your blogaversary!! I'm so thrilled that we somehow crossed cyber paths! You do write beautifully! I just read your first post....too beautiful for words! Imagine that....a writer can't think of the words! :)

  12. Olga, muchas felicidades!!! Un año y muchas entradas después, estoy seguro de que el blog te ha hecho una mejor persona (aún mejor de lo que ya eras). Porque escribir es mágico, es un ejercicio de absoluta soledad, como nacer o morir. Aunque haya testigos es uno mismo el que escribe, en un espacio que no puede ser más íntimo, el de las ideas.

    Te mando un gran abrazo, la reiteración de todo el cariño que te tengo, que les tengo... y una disculpa por haberme perdido un tiempo como para darte la impresión (equivocada, espero) de que he cambiado algunas prioridades.
