What are you reading this week? I’m Reading China Lake by Meg Gardiner.
I like unique facts and things. Today I heard this is the first time in one hundred years that Hanukkah and Thanksgiving landed on the same day. Interesting! In our lifetime we’ll only see it this one time. . After hearing this it had me Google-(ing) for one time occurrences.
I find each person and reader I’ve met is unique. Not to mention our beloved pets
Public access to the census returns is made available after every 100 years in UK. The most up-to-date returns made available to researchers are those of the 1911 Census for England and Wales. The Scottish 1911 census will be available in 2011.
The date 11.11.11 at 11.11.11 same-numbered palindrome is an event which can only happen on once every 100 years. The reason the date is so extraordinary is that 11.11.11 is the lone double-figure palindromic date, given that there is no 22nd month.
This one is awesome found it on http://www.goodnet.org/articles/310
This fascinating video, created by NASA, captures the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. This rare but predictable event will not be happening again till 2117.
DO YOU KNOW OF SOMETHING THAT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE EVERY ONE HUNDRED YEARS?
“A solar eclipse occurs at ‘New Moon’ when the Moon is between the Sun and Earth. A lunar eclipse will occur at ‘Full Moon’ when the Moon is behind the Earth (and passes through the Earth’s shadow). Eclipses occur more often than most people realize with a solar eclipse taking place roughly every 18 months. However, a total eclipse will only be seen from any specific location on Earth about once every 100 years. The last total eclipse to be visible from the UK took place in 1927, the next will not occur until 23rd September 2090.”
Was your first book a success that made you feel the next one would take you one hundred years to produce another one your fan base would love? Stay with it, your writing’s great and we’re looking forward to your next book.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
