Older Birthday Stars, From When I Was Younger

I started this blog in July of 2012, so the birthday stars I made in January 2012 (when I turned 44) and January 2011 (when I turned 43) did not appear here in those years. I found them, though, and will post them now.

The first two are different colorings of a 44-pointed star, from January 12, 2012, the day I turned 44:

These three are different color-versions of 43-pointed stars, from a year earlier — January 12, 2011:

I turn 48 today, so please visit the post right before this one, if you’d like to see this year’s birthday stars. =)

My 2012 Election Predictions (Obama vs. Romney)

The website www.realclearpolitics.com has a “create you own electoral map” feature, and I used it to make this. I’m going on record with my prediction before the polls open:  a narrow Obama victory, without Florida, in the electoral college. I also predict Obama will narrowly win the popular vote.

Soon, we’ll see how close to right I was when I made this.
