Just Another Day?

What do you think?
Are 7's really lucky?

How many people will buy lottery tickets today?
With the 7 combinations?
Many weddings are planned for today, lucky 7's or just an easy date to remember future anniversary's?

How about a few "seven" facts:

The seven deadly sins, or cardinal sins, are pride, avarice, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son was the seventh studio album released by heavy metal band Iron Maiden in 1988.

At a ceremony in Lisbon on 07/07/07, presumably at 7:07, the results of a global vote for the New Seven Wonders of the World will be announced.

The common ladybug has seven spots.

In the vision of the apocalypse described in the Biblical book of Revelations there are seven churches of Asia, seven candlesticks, seven stars, seven trumpets, seven spirits before the throne of God, seven horns, seven vials, seven plagues, a seven-headed monster, and the lamb with seven eyes.

The seven virtues are humility, liberality, chastity, kindness, abstinence, patience, and diligence.

A prism splits white light into seven colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

Who wore #7 ?

Mickey Mantel ~ New York Yankees
John Elway ~ Denver Broncos
Tim Horton ~ Toronto Maple Leafs (but was more successful as the coffee icon)
Ben Gordon ~ Chicago Bulls

... The name George Costanza wanted to name his first born ... boy or girl.

As for me, I think I will just toast to the date with a 7and7.

The only thing I can add was my son was born on the 7th (February). Most of the time I feel that's lucky! My daughter and I got haircuts yesterday. The stylists said they had a lot of weddings today. Have a good weekend!

Nancy said...

Joan: My daughter is a stylist, the salon is closed for a wedding party that's coming in ... she was excited because she is doing the bride's hair =)

I think luck is what we make for ourselves.

Nancy said...

Patience: In part, I do too ... by making the best of what ever cards we are dealt.

all these 7's today...and i still can't get over the fact that my total at Chick Fil A (after wearing my ACU shirt to the liquor store, mind you) was $6.66

Nancy said...

Biddy: Ya 'lil Devil!

I don't know whether it's lucky, but 7/7 is my birthday :-).

It was just another day for me. Nothing lucky or special happened.
