4 February

A day of few but hugely monumental lucky events! The first occurred on this day in 1789, when George Washington was unanimously elected as the first President of the United States by the U.S. Electoral College. The second happened far more recently as on this day in 2004, Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg. Who could imagine our world without these two events? (By the way you can follow us on Facebook – go on, what’s the worst that could happen?)

Now, if you ask me, something of equal monumental importance also happened on this day in 1978, when the Bee Gees went to number one on the US Billboard with “Stayin’ Alive” – bring on the disco ball and John Travolta white suit please! Can this be topped? Maybe not topped but certainly equalled as on this day in 1984 Culture Club were number one in the US with "Karma Chameleon"! Sing it George!

Every day is like survival
You're my lover not my rival

Oh the heartache! Wishing you all a staying alive, lucky survival day!
