♫  how old are You?  ♪

It was one of those whimsical conversations that we sometimes have.
My daughter started out by asking how old a person has to be to get a driver's license. One thing led to another, and she said, "I heard about the magic numbers: age 10, because that's when you reach double digits; 12, because then you're a pre-teen; 13, because then you're a teenager; 15, because you can get a learner's permit; 16, because you can get a full license; 18, because then you can vote; and 21, because you can drink."
I said, "Here are a couple more magic numbers to add: 25, because your insurance rates go down; and age 65, because then you can retire."
She gasped in shock at the staggering number, "Age 65! That's like how old God is!"

David's Comments: In her school's Gifted and Talented program, my daughter copied the style of Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli. Can you tell which is the original and which is the copy? The following elements of Botticelli's work are incorporated: subject (Jesus' Nativity), color, style (Renaissance), and brightness.
