Unusual dates

Ellee Seymour points out that today's date is 07/07/07, an interesting one for marriages.

That reminded me of the sixth of June 1966, when our primary teacher, Mr. Atkinson, pointed out that the date was 6/6/66. He said we would remember it the rest of our lives, and he was right! I don't remember that particular day being special, but I can recall us looking at a partial eclipse reflected in a bucket of water that school year.

Today is a slight fudge though, the 11th of November 2011 fits better without bodging the leading zeros.
