Two very important events happened on this day in history. One very minor one took place five months ago - this humble little blog was born. I'd like to say thanks to each one of you for helping me find my way.
Yesterday this blog registered over sixty thousand hits, not bad for a blog five months old and written for a man's grandchildren, and achieved only by the help of each of my good friends out there. Thank you all.
More importantly on this day in 1919 a Russian gentleman by the name of Mikhail Kalashnikov was born.
He gave the world one of the finest assault rifles ever developed.
