Blog Post #127: For Anuurai, a lovely lady whom I’ve never met!

Dear Readers,

In some ways, this particular article is one of the most unusual and special ones that I have ever had the pleasure of writing 😊! As I’m due to turn 60 on June 13, and my blog site here should have its 5th anniversary the day before then, I had originally thought that I might write something to celebrate those two occasions together. However, tonight I suddenly realised that a lovely lady whom I’ve never met will be 33 later this year on a date that is so unique that it deserves to be celebrated here, several months in advance!! You see, I always endeavour to live in this way: if something good can be done right now, I like to do it without delay, because I never assume that the chance will definitely come again later.

Anuurai, a lovely lady whom I’ve never met,
is a good friend of Keith, a long-time English Chess Grandmaster
friend of mine who sent me the very nice photo 😊!


  1. I will tell you that Anuurai’s birthday occurs A days before 31 December.
  2. Also, Anuurai’s birthday actually occurs well before December!
  3. The number of days from 31 December 2022 until Anuurai’s birthday next year is A x S, where S is a secret whole number that I am thinking of.

Believe it or not, you now have sufficient information given above to be able to figure out Anuurai’s exact date of birth, and the secret number S that I am also thinking of 😊!

I wish you lots of enjoyment with the fun brainteaser about Anuurai, and I intend to publish the solution before I turn 60 !! (Though I could publish a solution right now, in this special instance I have decided to wait a wee bit for people who’d like to try the puzzle without risking seeing any answers too soon down below.)

With very best wishes as always,

Paul M😊twani ♥

P.S. My wife, Jenny, and my son, Michael, and I would all like to wish a really happy birthday to Andrée, a good friend of ours who’s turned 5 x 9 + 5 + 9 = 59 today ♥😊♥

A is for Anuurai, Andrée…& All of us ♥😊♥


Rearrange the letters of ANDREE to make a proper six-letter English word.

Congratulations in advance for finding a solution.

If you find two solutions, then you surely deserve an extra-large piece of the cake!

Finding three solutions would equal the world record!!!

It’s my intention to post answers to Anuurai’s birthday brainteaser and Andrée’s word puzzle together, before my 60th birthday 😊

Dear Friends,

It’s now 13 June 2022 and I have turned 60, very happily 😊

One of the special treats that Jenny and I loved was seeing Andrée during the past weekend. Andrée has a gift for finding good words, and so she would spot quickly that ANDREE can rearrange to ENDEAR or EARNED or NEARED.

It was also a lovely surprise to hear from Anuurai today 😊

Congratulations to all readers who figured out that Anuurai was born on 19 October 1989. Her October 19 birthday is 73 days before 31 December, and 31 December is 4 x 73 = 292 days before the next 19 October (when there’s no leap year 29 February in between). This puzzle made good use of the fact that the normal whole number of days in a complete year is 365 = 5 x 73.

Blog Post #126: For Rooney, Claire, Sheila, Cansu, Jonathan, Erika, Robert, Andrée & other dear friends: may you all have very happy memories, birthdays or anniversaries this May ♥😊♥

Dear Readers,

I would like to begin by offering, with most sincere sympathy, kind thoughts and prayers for Rooney, a friend whose sister, Gina, passed on a couple of days ago. I know (from similar personal experiences involving loved ones) that God can grant us gentle comfort through positive, happy memories of the precious times shared with people so close to us. I also believe that we will meet again later in a perfect place that God has prepared for us.

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels,
and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
Matthew 16:27

Knowing the lovely tradition of dedicating the month of May to Our Lady, Mary, this is a perfect time to recall the following prayer:

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.

Holy Mary Mother of God,

pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death

Our Lady Mary’s beautiful month of May ♥
