Sep 9, 2009


So I am writing today about the date: 9/9/09.

So what is so special about today? Not much really, unless you're are into numbers or are superstitious. However, I thought I would share with you some "9" related facts.

Today is Wednesday, September 9, 2009.

There are 9 letters in the words Wednesday & September.

September 9, 2009 is the 252nd day of the year. Add those numbers, 2+5+2 = 9.

Speaking of numbers: If you multiply 9 by any 2, 3, or 4 digit number, the sums of those numbers will always equal 9. For example: 9x347=3123. Add those numbers, 3+1+2+3=9. Why does that work? I have no idea. Dad?

Cloud Nine.

Nine Lives.

9. (movie by Tim Burton which opens in theaters today, 9/9/09.)

Baseball is a game full of nines:

Nine players on the field.

Nine innings.

90 feet between the bases.

Nine strikes per inning.

To read about all of the excitement of 9-9-09, you can check out these articles at FoxNews, CNN, and Rolling Stone (to satisfy all you politicos & music junkies).

Yesterday, I sent my kids your blog to get them to notice the date! I read in the paper that 300 couples were married yesterday in NY (Town Hall?). Very cool post!
You visited my blog a long time ago, but now that everyone is in school, I am finally looking back!
