eleven eleven eleven and all those memories 

Roy Jenkins and I share one or two things. Welsh background, (eventual) membership of the same party, and a birthday on November 11. As a small child I remember being pleased that so many people paraded in the streets on my birthday but did wish they looked happier about it.

There tends to be exceptionally serious programmes on TV in this week also, so I have a habit of serious thinking and reading at this time rather than unalloyed celebration at the passage of years.

Todays memory of war is on a semi-palindrome date 11th Day of 11th Month of 11th Year numbered in the 2000 series Common Era.
