Every day for a year, starting on my 49th birthday, I did something I've never done before.
Now that I've completed that project, here's more of my adventures.

Just Another One Of The Crowd
A while back son Brian sent me a link to a website called NamePlayground, which is a fascinating look at first names in the United States since the 1800s. One of the things it allows you to do is search for a specific name. Thanks to the site (which uses information compiled by the Social Security Administration), I learned that the average age of women named Kathy is 54.64. The name's popularity peaked one year before I was born, when it was the 14th most popular name in the country. After that it went downhill pretty fast; less than three percent of women under the age of 30 share my name.
What about you? Is your name common or unique for your age group?
