Blog Post #43: Jenny

Dear Readers,

The earliest I ever was for anything was when I was born! Doctors had predicted that I would arrive on June 16th, 1962, but keen, little Paul actually made it with my favourite number of days to spare: three!

Lots of friends have been sending in very kind birthday wishes for me turning 2x2x2x007 years old today! Still, I would like to celebrate reaching the one-year mark on this website by posting a happy message for my lovely wife, Jenny, who will be 50 in three days from now. Thank you also to all readers who have put aside a little time to enjoy the posts and puzzles of the past year.

With many thanks and all best wishes to you all,

Paul Motwani xxx

The final result should be 16061968, Jenny’s date of birth!

Author: Paul A. Motwani

My name is Paul Motwani, but my colleagues, my students and their parents mostly call me "Mr. Mo"! My middle initial, A, stands for Anthony, because I was born on the official feast day of St. Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of miracles and of lost souls. I love teaching Mathematics and Chess, and giving fun-packed talks and shows in schools and clubs. The popular ingredients of Math, Chess, Mystery and Magic are my "Fantastic Four", and I give prizes too! I am an International Chess Grandmaster, and (loooooong ago!) I was the World Under-17 Champion. I am the author of five published chess books and hundreds of newspaper articles. I live with my wonderful wife and son in Belgium. I also love music, movies and puzzles. I blog at My e-mail address is You can find me on Facebook, too.
