27 March

£10 in the draw! Are you sure it isn't your lucky day? It was a lucky day in 1513 when Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León reached the northern end of The Bahamas on his first voyage to Florida, and in 1871, the first international rugby football match, took place with Scotland defeating England in Edinburgh at Raeburn Place. Finally, in 1998, the Food and Drug Administration saved marriages around the world when it approved Viagra for use as a treatment for male impotence, the first pill to be approved for this condition in the United States.

Famous people born on this day include Henry Royce, English engineer and businessman, founder of Rolls-Royce Limited, born 1863, Quentin Tarantino, American director, producer, screenwriter and actor, born 1963, and Mariah Carey, American singer-songwriter, producer, and actress, born 1970. Who shall we dedicate the day to? I was going to go with Quentin ...
