Just the thing to use when making your New Year’s resolutions

| January 2, 2007

Here’s a website where you can type in your age — and see what other people accomplished at that same age. For example:

At age 53:

Ludwig van Beethoven completed his Ninth Symphony despite being so deaf that, at the end of its first performance, he could not hear whether the audience was applauding.

Best-selling American author Sidney Sheldon began writing his first novel.

Inventor Walter Hunt patented the safety pin.

Long-time dissident Vaclav Havel became president of Czechoslovakia.

Jimmy Carter facilitated the Camp David accords between Israel and Egypt.

Robert E. Peary reached the North Pole.

Well, I like the “began writing his first novel” bit. ..bruce..
