me, myself and I

Saturday, August 09, 2008

I saw this over at Palma's blog. Do you ever wonder how many of you there are?

LogoThere are
people with my name in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

There are 216,414 people in the U.S. with the first name Jill. Statistically, it's the 298th most popular first name.

As for my last name, there are 106,683 people in the U.S. with my last name. Statistically, it's the 306th most popular last name.

I think I'll just stick with softdrink.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
