A Song For You

Here is a Renaissance song titled “See Man.” I will let you guess the name of the composer.
Here is a hint: If he were still alive he would be either 490 or 492 years old, depending on your source. The beginning of the song sounds a little like the theme from the original Star Trek.

Number Sixty

Number Sixty in the countdown of 100 Classical Songs is Waltz in A-Flat Major by Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849). It is 130 measures long, in 3/4 time. It plays at exactly 120 beats per minute, or 2 beats per second, in case you were wondering. It is exactly 242 seconds long.

Who Doesn’t Love Easter Bunnies?

Easter Happens Every Year
The day of the month isn’t always clear
Sometimes it’s late, sometimes it’s soon
But it always happens after the first full moon

That falls after the Vernal Equinox
Around the time we change our clocks
No matter the date, it’s always a fun day
And it always happens on a Sunday

So sit right back and enjoy this song
To listen won’t take very long
It was written in the 60’s by Vince Guaraldi
He had great hair, he wasn’t a baldy.

Everyone, sing along……. “Easter Time is here……..”






A Magic Number?

Everyone knows that 3 x 7 is 21, but how many people know what 333 x 777 is, without using a calculator? (It is 258,741 by the way.) 

If you double that number you get 517,482. Do you notice anything similar about those two numbers? They have the same digits. And I have yet to find another number that, when doubled, gives you the exact same digits, just in a different order.

Play around with a calculator and see if you can find any other numbers like that. Or not.

Check this out:

333 x 444 = 147,852

333 x 777 = 258,741

Those two answers are the same number in reverse!

I do a lot of math in my head.
