Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me
« on: 13/11/2008 08:02:47 »
So, I now enter the final thirtieth year, and consequently look forwards to a bit of a biggie next year. Those of you who are quick off the mark will have worked out that I am now 39. But 39's a bit of a dull number, isn't it? Are there any sassy things that involve the number 39? There's a good Queen song of course (`39), but what else?

Happy 39th Birthday!

                 

Thirty-Nine Squares Chess, or TNS Chess is a chess variant,

invented by Andy Kurnia in June 1998, for the contest to

design a chess variant on 39 squares. ...

I will! I'm off to have cake and coffee in a mo, which I have to buy as part of German tradition. Still, it's very good coffee and very nice cake!

OK I want my 15 minutes of fame too. November 2, 2008 was my 64th birthday. I made no consequence of it because all I could remember was the song from the 70's "... will you still feed me, will you still need me, when I'm 64?"
