If you know me at all you know that “47” is my favorite number. It has been my favorite for 25 years. It all started when every time I turned around you heard the number 47. How many people were at the party – 47. It is 47 degrees outside. Still if you listen to TV you will see and hear 47 a lot. Apartment # 47. Precinct 47. Just listen and you will see. Here is some more info –
