July 5 in history


On July 5:

1811 Venezuela declares its independence from Spain.

1881 a poll tax was imposed on Chinese people in New Zealand.

1937 Spam (the processed meat, not the internet variety) was introduced.

1946 the bikini had its debut in Paris.

1996 Dolly the sheep became the first mammal cloned from an adult somatic cell.

Dolly’s remains are exhibited at the Royal Museum of Scotland.

Less is more expensive . . .



. . . for bikinis.

But what’s happened to the recession when women are snapping up bikinis  for 2000 pounds which amounts to around 100 pounds a centimetre?
