Happy United Nations and Judy

2009-10-30-IMG_4900Today, October 24, is United Nations Day ... it honors the founding of the United Nations.

From Wikipedia:
The UN officially came into existence on 24 October 1945 upon ratification of the Charter by the five permanent members of the Security Council—France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States—and by a majority of the other 46 signatories. The first meetings of the General Assembly, with 51 nations represented, and the Security Council, took place in Westminster Central Hall in London in January 1946.
October 24 is also the birthday of my late sister, Judy.
