Friday, the 13th

Lucky or unlucky?    I would suggest to you that paraskavedekatriaphobia, sometimes friggatriskaidekaphobia, is somewhat overblown.    It would appear 'lucky' on Friday the 13th of April, 2029, for on that day asteroid 2004 MN4 will miss hitting the earth by a full 18,600 miles.    For comparison, geosynchronous satellites orbit at 22,300 miles.    Should be quite a sight.

Oh, yes.    The final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, will be released on Friday, July 13, 2007.

And . . .    Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743, at Shadwell in Albemarle County, Virginia.    Pretty lucky day for us . . . and me, particularly, since I was fortunate enough to attend and graduate law school at his University.

What?    That was a Saturday?      Never mind.

Now, on to DNA.

Two more orders yesterday.    Unfortunately these will just sit there now until they go to the lab next Wednesday, the 18th.    Unlucky?    Ken, #83, ordered his Y-Refine25to37 upgrade and Peter, #56, his DeepSNP-R1b test.    I'll let you know as soon as they have an estimated results date.
