Another It Happened On. No birthdays in the family today so it’s a regular edition today – just history. The cake was good though I was ridiculed for thinking it had a slight coffee flavour
It happened on November 8 1847… Bram Stoker, author of the horror novel “Dracula,” is born in Clontarf, Dublin, Ireland. Stoker’s villainous, blood-sucking creation, the vampire Count Dracula, became a pop-culture icon and has been featured in hundreds of movies, books, plays and other forms of entertainment
Also on November 8 1793, after more than 2 centuries as a royal palace, the Louvre is opened as a public museum in Paris by the French revolutionary government. Today, the Louvre’s collection is one of the richest in the world, with artwork and artefacts representative of 11,000 years of human civilization and culture
