Hardest thing - live in the world

What A Weird Start To My Day

Wow - I so rarely remember my dreams ... but this one woke me up and now I can't stop thinking about it ... and the person involved.

I had this dream that I bumped into someone that I hadnt seen in a log, long time ... and we stopped and had coffee.  He and I caught up with our news in general about what life had given us and where we had been etc since we had last chatted ...Then comes the bit I can't lose.

He started telling me about his fiancee ... and how happy he was .. but the more we talked the more he opened up until II learnt that she was emotionally abusing and bullying him.

He is someone that I am no longer in touch with - yet I feel I want to phone him, or go and give him a hug ... silly, I know.

I suppose part of thedream is coming from my school-day bullying that I am slowly working through ... but why use this guy to do it.

... I begin to cope with my feelings ... now I can worry that this old friend is sad .... Huh???

Anyway - as a Christian I could do the positive thing and pray that this is only my nightmare - and that he is actually really happy.

Oh well ... I must get off my mad thoughts and get on with the rest of my day - Just thought sharing might make me make sense of it!! 
Wow

The Beauty Of Numbers

 My Dad has just e-mailed this to me - it is absolutely amazing :-
Beauty of Maths! 

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321 

1 x 9 + 2 = 11 
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111 

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888 

Brilliant, isn't it?
And look at this symmetry: 
1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321
