Congratulations SKIP...and I wish you many many more...

BUT have the wife bring home a bottle of Geritol for you... If not have her check her PDR to see if they still make an Rx only product called Eldertonic... which was sold by the gallons in the late 1960s' when I first got my Rx Licence ...

Did not want to upset the mods. Take away the SE and replace with a "T".

Have fun Skip!

The best number is 73. Why? 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror (37) is the 12th and its mirror (21) is the product of multiplying 7 and 3. ... In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001 which backwards is 1001001.

"73 is the Chuck Norris of numbers," to which Sheldon replies "Chuck Norris wishes. [...] All Chuck Norris backwards gets you is Sirron Kcuhc!"[1]

Congratulations Skip.

Also, 73 is the Morse code for goodbye for now and see you later. It is used extensively in amateur radio CW communications as it has a distinctive sound.
