No superstitions. Load of old cobblers.

I'm off to kick the black cat in front of me. Wish me luck!

Re: Friday the 13th, again, superstitions?

I gave my notice at my last job in the U.S. on Friday the 13th (of April 2007).

- Boss wasn't happy (more work for him).
- His boss was happy (better opportunity for me).
- My family was very happy (CH > TX in many respects).

So overall a good day.

Last Friday the 13th I was taken to hospital by ambulance. I'll see what today brings.

It means, "crap I need to have 7 web sites, phone number and email addresses all working properly before 5pm"

So far so good, just need to get the phone numbers working and find someone to teach me how FrontPage works having never used it...anyone?

Re: Friday the 13th, again, superstitions?

I always thought that Friday the 13th was unlucky but my Swiss wife considers it a lucky day. Now, does this mean that one cancels out the other or that my chances of being trampled by a bull elephant charging through Vevey are just reduced by 50 % ?

Re: Friday the 13th, again, superstitions?

My brother, sister and I all have birthdays in the 13th. My sister was actually born on a Friday the 13th. Her Christining was cancelled due to a hurricane that had the same name as she.
My twin and I were born on a Sunday the 13th, but it falls on a Friday now and again.

I was born on a Friday 13th (not this one) and always look out for them as they tend to be good days for me. Today is an all round great day - everything is going to plan, and it looks like summer is back!
