Today 08/08/08 is my Birthday and I am 38. As it turns out I was born at 8 am, so there's another 8 for the mix. In reading about the Olympics today it seems that 8 is a lucky number for the Chinese. It seems to have something to do with fortune or wealth. Maybe that's why I just received a statement for an investment account that I had thought I had closed a long time ago. (I am still surprised this bank, which was not the place I orginally had the account with, was able to track me down after all the moves I went through over the years.) The account had, you could probably guess, 8 cents in it.
