It's my birthday


Another year older but:

"Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese.
Age is strictly a case of mind over matter.
If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." Jack Benny

yeeh today is my birthday but I won't have much time to celebrate. So we'll leave that for the weekend.
I share my birthday with 2 special bloggers. Paulo Coelho, the writer of the alchemist. My brother wil bring his wisdom diary for 2011 from Holland for me end of the year. Thanks dear broo. The other blogger is Dutches. She is from the netherlands and has a beautiful blog. A happy birthday for both of them

Feliz aniversario Paulo Coelho

Van Harte gefeliciteerd Dutches

I was born in 1961 so i've got the following riddle for you
What happened with 1961 that will not happen again for over 4000 year?  The one who's got it right first I will send a postcard.


  1. And a very happy day to you, my bloggy buddy!! I hope your make some fond memories for this time of year!

  2. Happy Birthday to You
    Happy Birthday to You
    Happy Birthday Dear Marja
    Happy Birthday to You.

    Happy Birthday and many many happy returns of the day.

    The year read the same when flipped 180 degree; and will remain the same until the year 6009.???

  3. Happy Birthday! I was born in 1962. Have a good weekend. And get started on choosing a postcard for me cause the answer to your riddle is that the year 1961 is the same if written upside down or inverted. The next year that that will happen is 6009.

  4. I heard this one once but had to look it up.

    ...flipping the numbers upside down...1961 reads 1961. And in about 4000 years turning 6009 and 6699 upside down will still read 6009 and 6699. The same logic holds true in 7000 years for 9006 and 9966.


    My daughter, Miss Wiggles, had her's Saturday.

  6. Kia ora Marja,
    Happy Huritau my friend! Hope you have a lovely day and week and on the weekend have a beautiful relaxing celebration. I shall raise a toast to you on Friday evening when I attend my nephews bday celebration. Man, lots of birthdays in July and August. Glad you are a birthday buddy!

  7. Happy Birthday, my birthday is this week too and so is my grandson, both on the same day. Have a wonderful week. x

  8. Lovely quote. Wish you a very happy birthday! Have a great year ahead.

  9. Happy Birthday, Marja.
    I'm afraid that I failed your teaser! I thought that the answer is; An extra-special person was born!
