Crazy 8's

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.

Today must be your lucky day. You should head over to Vegas and place a bet or two :-) I just wrote a Blog on the same topic. Check it out:
