### Three runs off the half century, and only got one maiden over.

Geez, it's been a while since I posted here.....

Like the rest of the world, my attention has been over on twitter and  facebook but I do want to keep the tradition alive of doing a blog post on my birthday.

So here I am, again!!

Last year, as I celebrated my birthday, I was in LA at the PDC. This year, I'm in Seattle, with the threat of snow, and the anticipation of the new Microsoft Store opening in Bellevue, and a Miley Cyrus concert!

As happened last year and the year befire, I’ve received best wishes from my friends via email, tweets, and on facebook and these started the day before, due to my down under crew. I even got my own hash tag, thanks to Brian Madsen

Thank you to all who left me a note – I will get back to each and everyone of you! I promise!!!

Now, some trivia about my age. It is the atomic number of silver! It is the fifteenth prime number, a safe prime, the thirteenth supersingular prime, and the sixth Lucas prime. Forty-seven is a highly cototient number. It is a strictly non-palindromic number. It is also a Keith number, because it recurs in a Fibonacci-like sequence started from its base 10 digits: 4, 7, 11, 18, 29, 47…. Its representation in binary being 00101111. It is the Telephone dialing country code for Norway

But, by far and away, the best thing I heard was a comment left on facebook which I used as the title of the post. If you need explaination - leave me a note....

Oh, by the way. To celebrate the day, I am introducing a new avatar. I don't know how long it will stick - but it's a new me.....

• "3 years short of 50 and.... um... Only one bad year"  ?

If I follow the Cricket-speak, a "maiden over" translates to a "shutout inning" in American.

• close..

ill give you a hint -- a maiden is also a term for a woman ;)
