Freedom speaks Saturday


Taco cat is a palindrome and so is today's date:

01/02/2010

Isn't that interesting?
According to Aziz Inan:


Palindrome dates are extremely rare. Before the beginning of this century, the last palindrome date of the second millennium occurred approximately 621 years ago on August 31, 1380 (since that date is 08311380). A total of 43 palindrome dates occurred during the second millennium; however, they all happened between the 11th and 14th centuries. No palindrome dates existed between the 15th and 20th centuries.


The second palindrome date of this century will occur on Jan. 2, 2010 (since that date is 01022010) and this will be the second palindrome date in our lives. After this one, the third will occur next year, on Nov. 2, 2011 (11022011) and the fourth will be on February 2, 2020 (02022020). There are a total of 12 palindrome dates in the 21st century, with the last one occurring on Sept. 2, 2090 (09022090). Note also that all the palindrome dates of this century will fall on the second day of the month. After this century, 12 more palindrome dates exist in the 22nd century (all being on the 12th day of the month) and another 12 in the 23rd century (all on the 22nd day of the month). The last (36th) palindrome date of this (third) millennium is to occur on Sept. 22, 2290 (09222290). After that, no more palindrome dates will happen for another 711 years until the next one in 3001, on Oct. 3rd (10033001).

So let us all appreciate this day, it is a rare day indeed. I for one am looking forward to celebrating this palindrome date and the next one...I would be delighted to celebrate the one in that occurs in February 2020, but I am a realist and chances that I will be around then are not good. We all need to celebrate special things as they come and not wait, otherwise you could miss the party!

Life is so good! Oh and Jack told me to remember to say: Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR
