Happy Friday the Thirteenth
Just a day before the expensive rose day, today is the first Friday the 13th in 2009. This year, we will have three (3) Friday the Thirteenths. The next one is in March, and the third one is in November.
This past week certainly wasn't good for many Australians. Last weekend's Victoria bushfire is the worst-ever bushfire in Australia History. And bad weather is predicted for this coming weekend.
2008's Friday the 13th, the Sony Bravia TV arrived. It still works great. No single fault yet.
A bit about Friday and the number 13.
In 1453, Byzantine Empire (Christian Eastern Roman) centred in Constantinople to the Turks.
As for Fridays... Christian tradition has something to do with it as well, such as the Crucifixion, Eve's offering the apple to Adam in the Garden of Eden, the beginning of the Great Flood, or the confusion at the Tower of Babel.
And there are a number of Black Fridays in history. The famous one includes the Wall Street Crash of 1929 (29th Oct 1929), Fisk-Gould Scandal (1869, a financial panic in the States.)
Stay safe and have a Friday the Thirteenth.
Also, if you missed out Monday night's Desperate Housewives, there's a special encore of the episode at 8.30 tonight on Seven after Better Homes and Gardens.
