The other magic has to do with 10 of the 42 POTUS have the same last name. In 220 years from 1789 to 2009 we have had 20 years of Roosevelt, 12 years of Bush, 10 years of Johnson, 8 years of Adams, and 4+ years of Harrison. I personally do not want to see any more years of Clinton as POTUS. Maybe it is just coincidence, and there is not a “royal class” of Americans from whom POTUS is elected. I hope so. In any event I am pleased that my guy’s last name ends with the letter “n”. I’m with Fred.

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
