The Number Two

Do you know that ...

... Number Two was the apparent second-in-command of The Village in the 1967-68 British television series The Prisoner?

... in the James Bond film Thunderball, 'Number Two' refers to Emilio Largo and his rank in SPECTRE?

... in the Austin Powers films, Number Two is Dr. Evil's second-in-command (who is actually keener to make money legitimately than engage in Dr. Evil's megalomaniac schemes)?

... Number Two is a minor character in Douglas Adams' The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (the enthusiastically dramatic third-in-command on the Golgafrincham B-Ark)?

... one of the engines from The Railway Series of children's books by the Rev. W. Awdry is known only as 'No. 2'?

... in the cartoon Codename: Kids Next Door, the character of Hoagie is codenamed Numbuh Two?

Now, do you know why I'm going through all these "number two" trivias? Well, I just couldn't think of a better intro to greet Erwin on our month "number two." Haha! I know, I know... Clever, huh? :p Anyways, I'd like to keep it simple this time... HAPPY 2ND MONTHSARY, HONEY! Two months and counting, right?

NOTE: All "number two" trivias were from Wikipedia.


Counting my Blessings

It's overwhelming (in a good way)! Blessings are pouring in and I can’t thank God enough for all the wonderful gifts (the chance to finally be able to help my family being the most significant one). Although I was never the “religious” type, I’ve always tried my best to be “spiritual” and I’ve never stopped praying for things. I guess it’s true what they say – “when prayers go up, blessings come down” (a Yiddish proverb) and to add to that, it’s always good to “count blessings like children count stars” (from Life is for Living).

Speaking of blessings and wonderful gifts -- my friend, Cristina, has just given birth to a healthy baby boy!!! Congratulations Kris and Ipe! I think you two are one of the most blessed couples I’ve ever met. More power and God bless!

Ipe - Thanks for sending me pictures. Little Ipe is adorable!
Kris - I hope you get well soon. Take care!


Extra Special Greetings

It's just a few more hours before Erwin's birthday and because I'm so so far away, here is just a little something that would hopefully make that day a little more special --

Have a great birthday, honey! You are a blessing! All the best on your birthday and always! Cheers!
