Humans are strange animals who sometimes find patterns in numbers. As such, I happened to notice that today's date is 11/1/11.

Was there today any great world-shattering event to justify this strange yet undeniably significant convergence? Not that I know of.

However, it does remind me of a joke I was once told many years ago by a middle-aged chap whom I met and had dinner with at his home in the French countryside near La Rochelle: "Qu'est-ce qui s'est passé en 1111?" "L'invasion des Huns."

He that hath ears to hear (and knows French), let him hear.
