Nineteen Years Ago

My daughter celebrates her 19th birthday today. Here are some of the things that happened in 1991, the year she was born.

The Internet was made available for unrestricted use and the number of computers on the net reached one million.

Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album with the hit single Smells Like Teen Spirit was most popular and signified the start of the Grunge era, which dominated the music scene up to the mid 90's.

Along with Nirvana, the most popular musicians were Pearl Jam, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses, Gloria Estefan, Boys 2 Men and Garth Brooks.

Home Improvement premiered on television.

Britney Spears appeared on Starsearch.

The New York Giants won Superbowl XXV.

The most popular movies were Hook, The Silence of the Lambs, Father of the Bride, Sleeping with the Enemy, Beauty and the Beast, Backdraft and Beethoven.

Happy Birthday Katelyn! This is for you...
