May 28 Author Ian Fleming London UK

What happened on May 28?

“Bond. James Bond.” Boy, who doesn’t love the sound of that sentence?!
Today marks the birthday of 007’s author: mister Ian Fleming (*1908). His stories established a brand that has generations throwing around cheesy “Shaken, not stirred” lines.

You know what rolls, too? Michelin tires!
This iconic French company was founded today in 1889.

In 1937, a major client of their rubbery products was founded in Germany: Volkswagen.

In case you want to take your Volkswagen on a ride through The Netherlands, make sure to hit the “Afsluitdijk” – an epic motorway on a man-made dyke, separating the country’s inland from the rough North Sea (established today, in 1932).

What a sad day it would be today without some Top40 hits, right? Clap your hands together for today’s birthday-girls: Kylie Minogue (*1968) and Colbie Caillat (*1985)!

And let’s wrap up the day with the sweet voice of actress & singer Carey Mullighan (*1985).
