There are days when looking at the calendar brings a smile to my face. Today was one of those days, a day of sequential date components.

What do I mean? The date today is 5/6/7. That is, the date here, in a country that insists on using a date format of "month / day / year". We are 5 years into a cycle of 12 years when there will be one day in the year with a "sequential date".

In the rest of the world, 5/6/7 will happen next month (" day, month, year") and today was 6/5/7.

Isn't it odd how things like this often slide right by without notice? Sometimes they jump right out at me, and sometimes they don't...
