That is good. I know a lot of people who are interested in nothing but

possessions. They have a lot but demand more.

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!!

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?

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.**9380**45

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.

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.

Hi John;

Anymore Vivaldi?

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?

Yes, I remember them well. About 8 inches in diameter.

Gonna go on deck for a break and lift logs for exercise.

Okay, I am going to grab a bite to eat. I am listening to the opera you suggested.

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.

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.

I'm eating some smoked salmon sent as a gift from my relatives in Washington state,

remember the guy who was in NASA and also worked for Boeing?
