Birthday Interruption

I interrupt this blogging of “Conjugates of Fields ” for an announcement:
Today, November 20, 2013, is my 56th birthday. 

That means that, as of today, I have survived:
56*365 days + 14 leap-days  =  20,454 days
which equals
20454 * 24  =  490,896  hours
490,896 * 60  = 29,453,760 minutes
28,401,120 * 60 = 1,767,225,600 seconds.

One point seven six gigaseconds old! Time sure flies.

I am having a minimalist birthday today. I figure that I don’t have to do anything to turn 56, other than survive the day, so I’m taking it easy. All I plan is to share a cake with wife and daughter. No big birthday party; I hate the stress. I’d rather treat a birthday as a milestone rather than as a deadline.
