If you Google 1:24, you come up with a lot of interesting tidbits.

For example, did you know that 1:24 is the true (and apparently only technically acceptable) scale for any model car?

Or, how about the fact that the Schweizer SGS 1-24, also referred to as the Schweizer-Burr SGS 1-24, is a United States single-seat, mid-wing, Open Class competition glider?

Inevitably, there were a LOT of entries that contained the date 1/24 (with lots and lots of different years attached), telling tales of meetings minutes, science and medical experiments, individual and group blog entries, birthdates, dates of death... those listings were endless.

I also noted some particularly interesting Bible passages, listed as a result of this particular search:

Colossians, 1:24:

Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.

Matthew, 1:24:

And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife.

Wait...what? Joseph awoke from his sleep??? Was it at that EXACT time? Is that the relevance...the Holy Grail... the meaning behind it all?


Is Joseph trying to communicate with her? Is she being told to rejoice in Christ's sufferings? Or, is she merely trying to torment her poor mom???

Like clockwork, every SINGLE (early) morning, that child enters into our bedroom, waking me up out of a sound sleep. At 1:24 a.m.

I guess now I've added one more Google entry that is just as random as the thousands I've pulled up, and makes as much sense as her 3-year-old internal clock.

Please keep rambling! Hope the baby will grow out of this phase? What does the Doc say? Is it those dreams that freak them out? They really do grow out of them. Ryan had them, bad news it takes him forever to fall asleep, and he is 11 now!
love ya,

Their doc says it's a transitional thing. All three of my kids have gone through it, at one point or another. My son was so bad he walked in his sleep, to the point where we had to put a chain on the tippy-top of the front door, for fear he'd walk right out of it! R. and S. only had bad dreams, and they only typically came and went when something "different" happened in their lives.

What can I tell ya? I have weird kids (they must take after their mom! :).

Glad you like my "ramblings"! :)
