The Magic of '11

I found out some cool things today. In the year 2011 there are four unusual dates: 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11. I also learned that if you take the last two digits of the year you were born and add the age you will be this year, the result is 111 for everybody that tries it. (I tried it on my mom, my brother, and myself, and it works!) Another cool fact: This October will have 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays and 5 Saturdays. This happens only every 823 years! These particular years are known as 'Moneybags' It is is said that if you send this to eight good friends, real money will appear in the next four days, supposedly as explained in Chinese feng-shui. Those who don't continue the chain won't receive money. That's how the story goes, anyway, and maybe it's worth a try.

Glad to be Back

I'm back to writing my blog. I took a short hiatus while I focused on publishing the last few issues of my newspaper, the Spruce Street Weekly. But now that I published the last issue, I am left with more time to update my blog with articles, pictures, videos, and possibly podcasts, as the local station that is starting up in my town, KPTZ, offered me a show.

It's nice to be back writing my blog, and you can look forward to many posts to come!

Happy Saint Pat's!
