As Jay writes:

There’s some­thing about round num­bers, even if they don’t actu­al­ly rep­re­sent any­thing par­tic­u­lar­ly spe­cial.

For some­one as mod­est (about her­self) as she, she has quite a pres­ence on the Web and not only at our fam­i­ly sites. In hon­or of the date, I col­lect some of them here.

your lapel buttons

Many peo­ple have lapel but­tons. They may be attached to a favorite hat or jack­et you no longer wear, or poked into a cork-board on your wall. If you have any lay­ing around that you do not feel emo­tion­al­ly attached to, please let me know. I pre­serve these for the Jew­ish peo­ple. At some point they will all go to an appro­pri­ate muse­um. You can see all the but­tons shared to date.
