Did you know on this day…

That in 1875 the electric dental drill is patented by George F Green.
(I do not like this patent! I have a major phobia of dentists)

That in 1887 the ground was broken and construction began on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.
(It’s one of my favourite places to see when I was in Paris!)

That in 1905 the world’s largest diamond, the 3,106-carat Cullinan, was found in South Africa.
(how much would that even be worth and what would you do with it??)

That in the 1st Winter Olympics in 1924, American skater Charles Jewtraw claims the first ever Winter Olympic gold medal; wins 500m speed skating event in 44.0s at the Chamonix Games in France.
(the Winter Olympics is my favourite winter time sports event – I love watching every single sport)

That Bill Clinton made his famous speech “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” in 1998.
(How is it possible that this took place 25 years ago! I remember that day.)

I was reading some historical facts and thought it would be interesting to share!
