Just realised I live at Number 10, so Its funny that I'm at number 10 on the 10/10/10. :D

Wonder what's happening at 10 Downing Street... (UK PM"s House) :D

It's a Perfect Score Day if its out of 3 Judges on some reality program as well! 3 10's!

It's also a friend's BDay today, (although turning 19, not 10 :wink:) so He'll likely be reminded to of the significance multiple times today too, Haha. :D

Sun is still shining though ;)
