    well looks like we're inching ever closer to another new year baby's arrival and the aging of another.


    another decade has come and gone.


    so we moving from the 2010's into the 2020's maybe we'll have better insight?


    come dancing. dance with me. let me see your heart rise up and spread across your face again across the years gone bye and now here we are again. dance with me in your heart my friend. the lights flashing across your face as we ride like surfers on the waves of music. dance with me again.


    o the voyage across the ages like ra in his barq only to see the dawn upon a loved one's face.


    let your light shine before men.

    I always wondered what the Roaring 20's were like, and soon I'll be able to find out.

    Yesterday we had an Earthquake near where I am living. Nothing serious and occasionally happens.
    Homes shaken by earthquake in Somerset

    I dread to think what could happen it the quake hit Hinkley point nuclear power station, which is in Somerset.

    I guess it depends on how you look at it. Oftentimes, decades are defined by terms such as "the twenties," "the thirties," etc.

    I remember having the exact same discussion around the year 1980. And I had to wonder: "How could someone seriously suggest that the year 1980 was not a part of the 1980s?"

    Well, if you start at Year Zero, i.e. 0000 after 10 years it is 0010; a further 10 years gives you 0020 - extrapolate that to recent times the end of the decade is the year ending in a zero; hence end of 2020.

    The key point was towards the end of the article:

    The article referenced in TimeandDate.com also mentioned "round number bias" (Did the Millennium Start in Year 2000 or 2001?):

    I recall an article around the time of Y2K where someone insisted that the new millennium started on January 1, 2000 and enjoined readers to disregard and forget the killjoys who insisted that it started on January 1, 2001.
