Today is 11.1.11, a palindrome date. A palindrome, according to wikipedia, is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction.
John Grimond wrote last November in The Economist that 2011 was year of palindrome. It is true, we have 1/1/11, 11/1/11, 1/11/11 and the best one, 11/11/11!

Also, in some cultures to read 11 repeated times is a sign of good luck.
For this 2011, I wish you heath, commitment, determination and a little bit of good luck. Now, you know where you can find the last one. Happy 11/1/11.
