One More Year

I always talk about serendipity but I really am a firm believer in happenstance. Just as I was heading to bed last night I received an e-mail from that Calamity Jane of blogdom, Yellowdog Granny. She had sent me a link to a Birthday calculator. So I gave it a whirl and found out that:

As of 12/8/2008 5:10:28 PM EST
You are 61 years old.
You are 744 months old.
You are 3,235 weeks old.
You are 22,645 days old.
You are 543,497 hours old.
You are 32,609,830 minutes old.
You are 1,956,589,828 seconds old.

You were born on a Monday under the astrological sign Sagittarius.

There is 1 day till your next birthday (that would be today) on which your cake will have 62 candles.

Those 62 candles produce 62 BTUs, or 15,624 calories of heat (that's only 15.6240 food Calories!) You can boil 7.09 US ounces of water with that many candles.
Dad and I
This gentleman holding me in his arms would be my father. This would have been taken when I was about 6 months old.

Your fortune cookie reads: Love conquers all.

The Julian calendar date of your birth is 2432163.5.

Your birthday falls into the Chinese year beginning 2/2/1946 and ending 1/21/1947. You were born in the Chinese year of the Dog.

Your Native American Zodiac sign is Owl; your plant is Mistletoe.

You were born in the Egyptian month of Menchir, the second month of the season of Poret (Emergence - Fertile soil).

Your date of birth on the Hebrew calendar is 16 Kislev 5707. Or if you were born after sundown then the date is 17 Kislev 5707.

The Mayan Calendar long count date of your birthday is which is 12 baktun 16 katun 12 tun 17 uinal 19 kin

The Hijra (Islamic Calendar) date of your birth is Monday, 15 Muharram 1366 (1366-1-15).On board the Ascania 1949
That second gentleman holding me in his arms - hmm is there a pattern developing - is an Officer on RMS Ascania. I would have been around 3 and my mother and I were heading for Belfast to visit my grandmother. The ship went from Halifax to Liverpool - a 7 day journey.

Celebrities who share your birthday:

Your age is the equivalent of a dog that is 8.86301369863014 years old. (You old hound dog, you!)
Kids party
It says this was taken at my Birthday party but I notice we're all in short pants, so unless winter's were milder then ... And we know they weren't, why that winter of 1950 we walked to school barefoot in 20 feet of ... continued old man mutterings. From left to right we would have young Billy John, Harry, Sharon, Doreen, Judy, the big guy I really don't know and Davey. Looks like Our Gang!

Your lucky day is Thursday.
Your lucky number is 3.
Your ruling planet(s) is Jupiter & Neptune.
Your lucky dates are 3rd, 12th, 21st, 30th.
Your opposition sign is Gemini.

Today is not one of your lucky days!

And as I said to Jackiesue - I've used Clinique for the past 30 years which is why at 62 I only look 60!
