About

Bill Ward, at TIMES, is all ABOUT numbers.

Digits in a phone number?  Palindromic numbers are best.  I believe.

Count-down dates?  Great fun, WHEN you can get them to the SECOND.

Ordinal Numbers?  You know them?

I bet you do.

First

Second

Third…….

Some watches have two hands on them, yes?   Accurate to the hour and minute.

Some watches have THREE hands on them, yes?

Question:  What do you call the THIRD hand on a fancy watch with three hands?

This site SPECIFICALLY targets the upcoming epic date of 12/12/12, 12:12:12

Bill Ward has had a life-long love of numbers. From the fairly recent past, you may remember an epic COUNTDOWN PARTY in Fuchinobe, Sagamihara-shi, Kanagawa, held on Hesei 8, July 6th, with corks flying at 5:43:21 EXACTLY……..

A photo will be forthcoming of Hesei 10-10-10, with photo snapped at 10:10:10 EXACTLY. A Dudley Moore and Bo Derek movie was watched that SAME night for GOOD reason.

A photo of 11-11-11 11:11:11 is forthcoming, as well as a Dec 12th 12:12:12 photo. Both of these were taken in 2011.

There is one last Hurraahhh for Same Year-Same Month-Same Day date fun, SPECIFICALLY coming up on December 12th, 2012.

A FULL YEAR has been set aside to CELEBRATE this upcoming event. Various parts of this site will expand upon this concept. Enjoy. WJW
