That is good. I know a lot of people who are interested in nothing but
possessions. They have a lot but demand more.

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

Hey!! I just noticed that potassium (K) has a palindrome-almost weight 39.0983
Without the 8 in there it would have been 39093, but the 8 is in it, so that threw me for a loop till now.
So #19 on the chart, I'm just doing this for my own benefit, is 39093 then 3909[bold]8[/bold]3, yeah!!

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

well molybdenum is incrementally simple: 95.96
And let me take a look on the chart for a sec...
be right back...
I'm back:  Cadmium is 112.411, so take out either the 2 or the 4 and have a palindrome. (#48)
And lead: 207.2, take out the 7. (#82)
Don't see any others this look.

Do you think there is one that is a palindrome?

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

Not in the 2009-2011 numbers I have, I don't think so.
But here is a cool one I just found:
Take #25, manganese, and then double it and add 4 for 54.
The number ends in 45 though, so that part is palidromic.
Then in the middle, if you reverse-mod the numbers with 10, then
then the Baroque date of 1720 becomes 9380.
The number is actually 54.938045

Cool! I see palindromes when I am walking around outside, sometimes with words too.

Wow, that's really neat, b.  I sometimes take note of license plates and make jokes out of them in ways no one else could do without the codes I have in my head.  But...

But here is a great song I'm listening too that will make me remember 1720 I hope for #25, manganese.
By the way vivaldi lived 1678 to 1741, one of the few facts i know!
Youtube this: VIVALDI (1720@) Concerto for Viola d'amore in D RV 392

All vivaldi songs recovered or known are indexed with RV numbers.  (BWC? what is bachs 3 digit code?)

I listened to it twice.  I really like it a lot.  I think I'll hook up my PC to the Bose system we inherited from my late Grampa and listen again.

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

Sounds even better filling the room with the sound.
I've got away from #25 (manganese) 54(1720-->9380)45 and now I am focusing on #69 thulium.
It has a neat pattern in one of my block modules I call the big-H.   It is 168.93421

``````7___0
6_4_1
8_5_2
9___3``````

This "H" diagram was something I memorized last summer and was using a lot for the elements.
It works really well for 168.93421 due to the simple flow pattern.

Right now I'm listening to this one:
It is totally different based on the singing and flute instead.
youtube:     A. Vivaldi La Candace Aria "Io son fra l'onde" - Ann Hallenberg

I have some vivaldi 33 1/3 records, aren't the 45's the tiny ones you can stack up?

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

I think I'm gonna alter my big-H block diagram, by
switching the 4 and the 5.  This has been bothering
me for many months, so now it will be like this:

``````7___0
6_5_1
8_4_2
9___3``````

I know the six and the seven don't make sense, but
I like it that way.  I have my reasons.

It would be better if they were transposed but you can not have everything.

### Re: weight lifting miracle today

Yes, the numerical arrangement has special meaning to me, though it remains personal to me.

Off the subject, now I'm listening to a very very long baroque piece:

A. Vivaldi: La Silvia (RV 734) / The complete opera, Milan 1721 / Ensemble Baroque de Nice

I don't know how it is going to end.

I'm between 30 to 31 minutes now.
