I just noticed that yesterday I had published blog number 416. You probably say, “So what, a lot of people have done that”. I don’t mean to imply that it was a lot of blogs; I just mean that the number 416 is one of a unique few. There are only 18 such numbers in a little over 20,000. Now, can you tell me what is unique about this number?
Now is good time to change the subject while I try to decide if I should give you the answer today or wait until tomorrow? While I am trying to make up my mind, I will tell you that I heard some thunder a little after 19:00 last night. In fact, there must have been some heavy clouds to my south because my satellite went off a couple of times. That is one disadvantage of satellite, but it is better than cable if you are an RVer. The satellite can go with you but you would need a very huge reel of wire for the cable to follow along (grin).
Yes, it rained down south of me toward Houston. The weather man said that Houston got a small amount but west of Houston and Katy there was heavy rains. I saw on their map that some places got in excess of three inches. The rain goes north, south, east, and west of me. . . so when is it going to dump some here?!?!
Ok, I have decided to tell you what is unique about the number 416. Others like it are 11, 24, 39, . . . 17,289, 18,324 and 19,361; 18 of them under 20,000. The answer is that the last part of the number is the square of the first part. The number 4 squared is 16. Yeah, I know, this blog was real dumb. I will try harder in some future blog, maybe.
You all have a great day now, you hear?
