No, I did not just make a goal. But the mil10 blog has just reached twenty posts, or a score of posts as Abraham Lincoln may have said. Although I think he may have had better things to read than the random ramblings found here.

What is the signifigance of twenty? I don't know, but I listed below several things associated with the number. You never know when you will need a list of such information.

--> Twenty is a village in Lincolnshire, England.
--> A twenty is a denomination of U.S. currency featuring Andrew Jackson's portrait and a denomination of UK currency featuring the portrait of Adam Smith.
--> 20 is the code for international direct dial phone calls to Egypt.
--> Interstate 20 is a freeway that runs from Texas to South Carolina.
--> 20 is a 1988 album by Harry Connick, Jr., but Twenty is a 1997 album by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
--> 20 is CB slang for "a place," being short for "10-20," and is used in reference to a person or object's location.
--> The Twenty Year Curse refers to the pattern of presidents of the United States who were elected to office in 1840, 1860, 1880, 1900, 1920, 1940, and 1960 to die in office.
--> 20/20 is a newsmagazine on ABC.
--> 20/20 indicates normal vision at 20 feet.
--> 20 is the atomic number of calcium.

I know twenty posts is not a big deal in the blogging world, but it is twenty times that the mil10s have opened up and shown a small slice of who we are that may have otherwise gone unseen. Twenty is just the beginning.
