So, was today special for you?

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.

I should imagine Father Christmas will be still around, as concerned, and still reassuring the children of the 31st century of the magic of Christmas :o}

"Was not 10/10/10 and 11/11/11 unique also?"

Obviously they were, but that's not the point. Today was the last time - it will not happen again for another 990 years.

At my age Every day is special!

A unique day, I cannot even remember what happened yesterday, and tomorrow, I hope I can remember what I did today.

Must be an age thing?.

I wonder if there will be a thread about the 100+ billion global population that we didn't manage to control in the 21st century creeping further up the receding shoreline?

"We've all lived through a unique day"

" it will not happen again for another 990 years."

Then it ain't unique!

However, Gretna Green had its busiest day ever.

The next consecutive date is on 01/01/2101 not 3001

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.

Should have mentioned: "Well it is the 13th" unlucky for some :O)
