Before Google, Michigan Brothers Compiled Calendar Events

Oct 16, 2017

How many times do you look on Twitter or Facebook and find out that it’s National Pizza Day or another day named after your favorite food? Or that your favorite celebrity is celebrating their birthday? Way before there was Google, a pair of brothers from Michigan compiled that information in a yearly calendar of events.
