By the Numbers

Hi everybody! Your are now a year older! Well you would be if your were a horse, horse's turn a year older on 1 January, did you know that?

But birthday's are important to us humans, some more that others. By the numbers here are some of our important age days.

One - Well you made it to your first birthday and that's a big deal. World wide fifty-one out of every thousand newborns didn't make it to their first birthday.

Five – Kindergarten here you come.

Ten - Wow a whole decade and now you're a Tween.

Thirteen - A teenager. A junior one, but still a teenager.

Sixteen - Sweet sixteen and you can get a driver's license and scare us all off the road.

Eighteen - You're legal. Okay, a little legal, got to wait three more years to buy that beer.

Twenty-one - Real legal, you can now get drunk legally.

Twenty-five – Your car insurance premiums will probably go down a little and you can rent a car.

Forty - They say life begins here.

Fifty-Five - Your're a "Baby Senior" and can joy AARP.

Sixty-Five - You are now old and they call you a Senior. You're now on Medicare but you may have to wait a few years yet for that Social Security check. But you do get some Senior discounts, yeah.

Seventy and Eighty - Psalm 90, verse 10, says "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." So God is watching when you hit the big seven zero.

Hundred - Lucy you! You've hit the birthday age jackpot. Did you get your letter from the President and a mention from Willard Scott on Good Morning America?

No matter how old you think you are – Happy New Year's Birthday to you!
