Introducing Moses, the counting dog!

So, while  was over in Lentel as anything, in the Abbotsford convent yesterday, just before left i spotted a dog i had seen before and his more domesticated buddy, another dog.

For the life of me i cant remember the name of the tame dog, but i guess that's the price you pay for being responsible and behaving yourself, if you a dog?

The owner of Moses was telling me that Moses grandaddy was a dab hand at sniffing truffles, now it's the mushroom season here in Melbourne,  wonder if Moses 'special' talents couldn't be used more effectively?

Anyway, take it away Moses

And i got thinking of this
The count's counting song

Which got me thinking about the number 0, which is the newest number

One of my ex-housemates Jackson was asked:
Centrelnk: Have you tried looking for any jobs?
Jackson: No
Centrelnk:You need to double your efforts, triple you efforts
Jackson: Zero times 2 = Zero
 Clever guy, now the history of 0, it's the newest number of all the numbers and there is quite an interesting story about interest and those tiny little numbers that start with 0...

Introducing Zero
 'A sign that creates confusion and difficulties'

It's interesting to note that the catholic church once declared it a sin to charge interest on loans, they called it usury , oh how things have changed

But don't thank me, thank Moses!

The next book i'm going to read is one of my all time favourites, 'The count of Monte Cristo', do you think there is a connection?
