# Nineteen Months Today (and it’s all about the 3’s)!

Hi everyone,

I thought I’d post a quick midweek blog in celebration of my 19 month birthday. You might be thinking ‘what’s so special  about 19 months?’ Well, in all honesty, nothing extraordinary, expect that I’ve been playing with the numbers again, as I did in the blog titled ‘It’s All About The 3’s and 9’s!‘ published on 19.03.2009, my nine month birthday.

So let’s consider the date of my 19 month birthday:

19.01.2010

~ 1 ~

To begin, the obvious fact is that it’s the nineteenth and I’m nineteen months old today. First fact!

~ 2 ~

Secondly, I’ve been around for 579 days since my birth date of 19.06.2008. If you take these numbers of days and do a modulo operation on it (or digit summing), you get the following: 5 + 7 + 9 = 21. Perform the same operation on the twenty-one, i.e. 2 +1 and you arrive at 3!

~ 3 ~

A third interesting fact is if you take the difference of the modulo operation of my birth date and my nineteen month birthday you also arrive at 3, as follows:

19.06.2008 = 1 + 9 + 6 + 2 +8 = 26. Perform the modulo operation on the 26 (i.e. 2 + 6) and you arrive at 8. Now, do the same with my nineteen month birthday, i.e. 19.01.2010 = 1 + 9 + 1 + 2 +1 = 14. Perform the operation on the 14 (i.e. 1 + 4), and you are left with 5.

As mentioned, the difference of the modulo operation of my birth date and my nineteen month birthday is 3. To arrive at that subtract 5 from 8, and you’re left with 3!

~ 4 ~

Fourthly, breaking the rules of the modulo operation slightly, one arrives at 3 by using the difference of the tens of the date of my birth and my nineteen month birthday after digit summing them. Consider my birth date: 19.06.2008. Convert this to tens, as follows: 19, 06, 20, 08. Add these up (i.e. 19 + 6 + 20 + 8 ) and you arrive at 53. Now do the same for my nineteen month birthday (i.e. 19.01.2010) as follows: 19 + 01 + 20 + 10 and you arrive at 50. The difference of the two (53 – 50) brings you back to three!

~ 5 ~

A fifth point of interest is that if you take the date I was born, and the date of my nineteen month birthday and you calculate for each of these the number of days these are from the start of the millennium, you arrive at the following values respectively: 3092 days and 3671 days (i.e. 3092 days passed since 2000.01.01 to my date of birth, and 3671 days passed since 2000.01.01 to my nineteen month birthday). Now, digitally sum both these numbers of days: 3 + 0 + 9 +2 = 14, and 3 + 6 + 7 + 1 = 17. Next digitally sum each of these results, as follows: 1 + 4 = 5, and 1 + 7 = 8. As per the third fact above, now deduct the 5 (digitally summed number of days this millennium to my date of birth) from 8 (digitally summed number of days this millennium to my nineteen month birthday) and you arrive back at 3!

~ 6 ~

A slightly different approach forms the sixth fact, which relates to the last century (the 20th century, starting 1900.01.01). The number of days from the start of the last century (1900.01.01) to my date of birth (19.06.2008) is 39 618 days. And the number of days since the start of the last century (1900.01.01) to my nineteen month birthday (19.01.2010) is 40 197 days. Now digitally sum the number of days since the start of the last century to my date of birth and you arrive at 9 (i.e. 3 + 9 + 6 + 1 + 8 = 27. Digitally sum 27, i.e. 2 + 7 = 9).

Perform the same process for the number of days since the start of the last century to my nineteen month birthday, and you arrive at 3 (i.e. 4 + 0 + 1 + 9 + 7 = 21. Digitally sum 21, i.e. 2 + 1 = 3).

Lastly, add the answers of the previous to digital summations, i.e. 9 and 3, and you arrive at 12. Digitally sum 12 (i.e. 1 + 2), and you’re left with 3!

Last, but not least, don’t forget that we’re a happy family of 3 too!!!! Incidentally, its also my cousin’s birthdays today – Ryan turns 15 and Tamsin turns 12. Happy birthday cuzies!

Love,

Jarrod
