Golden Birthday
Have you ever heard the term "Golden Birthday"? You reach this once-in-a-lifetime day when you turn in years the day of the month you were born. For example, if you were born on August 20th, the day you turn 20 is your "Golden Birthday."

Yeah, but are all workaholics born on Saturday?
Monday's child is fair of face;
Tuesday's child is full of grace;
Wednesday's child is full of woe;
Thursday's child has far to go;
Friday's child is loving and giving;
Saturday's child works hard for a living;
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is blithe and bonny, good and gay

Reach out and greet someone
While you have your recipient on a touch-tone phone:

1 1 4 * 9 *

1 1 4 1 # 0

1 1 # 0 * 7 4

# # 0 * 0 8

Are you popular?

August is the most popular month to be born in (like you had a choice).
