    Poem

    A clock is wound
    Round and around
    To tell the time of day

    Asleep at night
    That we may work
    To make the time to play

    Poem

    Time is Precious

    Time is precious
    It’s of the essence
    It’s here, then gone
    From adolescence

    The time you have
    And the time you take
    The things you’ve done
    And the plans you make
    The sights you’ve seen
    Now a memory
    And what’s to come
    Yet a fantasy

    Time marches on
    Though nary a sound
    Hands on the wall
    Each day spin around

    Time is fleeting
    Take note and behold
    Lessons in life
    With age, growing old

    Make your time count
    To be a good friend
    Share happiness
    And love to the end

  • Birthday Weekday

    It was 5:20 a.m. and I was finishing my second cup of coffee when it dawned on me – the question:

    How many birthdays have I had on the same day of the week as my date of birth?

    In resolution, using this weekday calendar, I laboriously set about to record the years in which I had a birthday on the Sabbath, being born on a Sunday.

    Granted, this number of same days of the week may be of minimal interest, yet I did observe a pattern. So, I checked a few other sample birthdates to substantiate the following conclusion:

    With the exception of February 29th, every birthdate, on any given day of the week, recurs on that day of the week in accordance with the following pattern of years…

    ↱ 6 · 11 · 6 · 5 ↲

    So, if your birthday on the same day of the week as your date of birth initially occurs at age 11, it then recurs at intervals of 6, 5, 6 and 11 years, as a repeating loop.

    Also, if by chance you happened to be born in a leap year on February 29th, your next calendar birthday of February 29th – on the same day of the week as your birthdate – will occur in a cycle every 28 years.

    You may say that I’ve got too much time on my hands, but cut me some slack – and cake – as today is my birthday. Happy birthday, me!

  • Half of 2021

    In any calendar year with 365 days – such as 2021 – the median point representing an equal amount of time before and after occurs at noon on July 2nd (the time of this post).

    May your next 4,380 hours be greater than the previous 🤔

    Happy Palindrome Day

    Actually, every day this month from 1/20/21 through 1/29/21 are palindrome dates; that is, each date reads the same forward or backward – 12021, 12121…12921.

    There are also many examples of palindrome sentences. One of the most famous is –

    A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!
