Random thoughts on art, technology, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate: November 2007


Remember the beginning of The Fellowship of the Rings, the first book of the Lord of the Rings trilogy?  It starts with Bilbo celebrating his eleventy-first birthday (111), and musing about what a remarkable number 111 is.

Well, looking at my dashboard, I notice I now have eleventy-one-thousand points.  And while I am not trying to make a big deal over it; like Bilbo, I am just simply observing what an interesting, unique number it is.
