Today October 20. 2010, is a very special day!
Why, might ask?
Well today is my 680th birthday!
Of course not 680 years, but 680 months!
As special as that seems, today is a very special patterns day!
Today is the 66th anniversary of the Battle of Leyte when MacArthur Returned to the Philippines! “I’ll be back” he said as he left! And he returned to “Terminate” the Japanese rule here! Actually, I think it was the terminator that said that!
Anyway 66 us a great pattern, but my birthday and the 66th anniversary of MacArthur’s return to the Philippines is not enough!
But this is a special day…
In the three main numbering systems in the world today. Today makes some great patterns!
- 20 10 10 20
- 10 20 20 10
- 20 10 20 10
Those numbers represent the Century, the Year, the Month and the Day!
First Computer… Century, Year, Month and Day.
Next American… Day, Month, Century, and Year.
Finally Eurasian… Month, Day, Century, and Year.
This pattern will only happen twice more before the year end of the century – before 2101!
So I hope you are enjoying my birthday on this very special day!
God Bless You All
