We've all lived through a unique day in calendar history - 12/12/12

The next time three date numbers align will be the first of January 3001, and no doubt there'll be a thread about it then.

All of us will be long gone, as will our children, and their children, and their children, and their children, and their children... and so on.

Chronos the 2nd

Truly sorry to hear about your experiences, but like you I find things are changing as to what we expect but don't seem to get.

But when we bring these subject up, we appear to be accused of moaning, and not accepting the necessary and required changes laid before you!.

Mentioning seating arrangements on trains, I saw a documentary the other week about such thing. Apparently there are very strict laws nowadays in the UK for animal transportation, but very little for the paying public.

Apologies for going off thread, but I had to have my unique daily moan.

My birthday is easy to remember. I was born on the 3/3/30. A couple of years later and it could have been the 3/3/33.

(I could have had the nickname "Feathers" because there are firty farsand fevvers on a frushes froat) as the Cockneys used to sing I believe.

Why can't Cockneys be taught to put their tongue between their teeth when saying "Thirty" etc.?

"Not like FE to get it wrong all the same."

Thank you. Actually I took the information from a newspaper, and I can't remember which one now. If I had stopped to think for a moment,instead of rushing in to dinner when called for the umpteenth time I would have realised the error.

Thanks for the correction.

"The next time three date numbers align will be the first of January 3001, and no doubt there'll be a thread about it then".

I know that you are an eternal optimist but I am prepared to bet any sum with you that the human race will not survive until 3001.

Whether it is 01/01/2101 or 01/01/3001 I would hope to be around - but then I am a reincarnationist....
