SIX ~ My Birth Number

love HEXAGONS ~ Benzene Rings

also Honeycombs 

Beware Him ~ whose number is

SIX  SIX  SIX  ~  The Real Devil


SEVEN ~ Perfection

SEVEN Stars ~ SEVEN Graces

Grow from Child to Boy !

When I became SEVEN ~ I

entered a SEVENTH Heaven.


EIGHT ~ Chinese Good Luck

"One over the EIGHT ~ Bad Luck" 

Don't play the EIGHT Ball !

EIGHT  white notes ~ makes an OCTAVE

Melody and Harmony



Love ~ Joy ~ Peace ~ Patience ~ Kindness

Goodness ~ Faithfulness

Gentleness and Self Control 

Keep in Step with the SPIRIT ! 


TEN ~ Number of LAW

TEN Commandments ~ TEN Scout Laws

TEN  Downing Street !

Started Big School ~ when I was

TEN ~ Rules & Regulations ! 


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN


NOTES ~ BENZENE is C6H6 and KEKULE  proposed

it was a perfect HEXAGON of six Carbon atoms each 

with a Hydrogen attached. Honeycombs HEXAGONAL 

One over the EIGHT ? The British Workman could

drink eight pints of warm beer and still cycle home 

but the NINTH would make him fall off ~ try it !

The NINE FRUIT of the SPIRIT give us the character

to live a life honouring to GOD ~ It was a miracle 

that they fitted the FORMAT (5 7 5 7 7) in order !

Primary Schools in the UK (5 to 10) are Heaven but

Secondary School ~ can be Hell ~ so many Rules

and Regulations and (God Forbid !) HOMEWORK !
