Some great events have happened on the 12th of the 12th, a wee while back Mr Marconi sent his first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean, disproving all his critics that the limit of transmission would be a maximum of 200 miles. Very soon 12/12/12 will be the last matching dates till the 1st January 2101. I wonder will the great 2009 Bordeaux vintage be cracking in 2101, who knows.
