Jon is a treasure of magic. I value his friendship so very much. We've been corresponding for more than 30 years, I think, but I met him face to face for the first time at the wedding of a certain Mr. Kaufman!

Happy Birthday, Jon!

Happy birthday, Jon. Here's wishing you twenty more good years, minimum.

76 squared = 5776 which ends in 76, so this is an automorphic number, so this is his second automorphic birthday (the only other automorphic number under 100 is 25).

Jon will devise a clever card trick based on this principle and post it here next week.

Technically, 5 and 6 are also automorphic numbers, but if we limit ourselves to two digit numbers, then the above statement is correct.

Happy Birthday, Jon!

Since we are getting all nerdy here .... his first automorphic birthday was his very first birthday. Happy birthday Jon!

Hi Jon, It's your birthday and you can do whatever you want. I'm not sure the police are on board with that though. Have a great day.

Tom
