August 29

On August 29th, 1982:

The synthetic chemical element Meitnerium, atomic number 109, was first synthesized at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, Germany.

It was 38F in Cleveland Ohio, the lowest temperature ever recorded for August in that state.

Steve Miller's Abracadabra hit #1.

Carlos Delfino was born.

A new Chevy Malibu cost about $8000.

And, on August 29th in 1982, Ingrid Bergman died.
This is notable as K and I danced our first dance as husband and wife to As Time Goes By
at about 3:00 that afternoon.
We had an elegant small wedding with a delicious dinner and beautiful music and have never looked back.

Congratulations on 30 wonderful years together! Here's to the next 30 and beyond; you're an inspiration to those of us still hoping to find a love of that depth, commitment and complexity. Cheers!
