There is a property located on N. 179th St. in Miami-Dade County, Florida, with an assessed value of $1,391,361.
In the fiscal year 2010, the adopted expenditures for “Personal Services, Area Agency on Aging”, in Prince William County, Virginia, was $1,391,361.
If, today, you were exchanging 1,190,469.33 Euros for American Dollars, you would receive $1,391,361.
And, in 2012, in the State of Georgia, lotto draw sales for Mega Millions was $1,391,361.
So, what does all of this have to do with my blog on cookbooks? Well, only a bit of trivia. The database I use (www.collectorz.com) has a tool to indicate the number of pages in my current cookbook collection and it is currently 1,391,361 pages. Heck, that’s a lot of pages and a lot of recipes!
The number of books in the collection now stands at 6,013. That’s about the same number of books damaged by monsoon floods in Phoenix a week or so ago, at the Burton Barr Central Library! Fortunately, they have a lot of other books left for borrowers.
It is estimated that if $1,000,000 in US one dollar bills were stacked one on top of the other, the stack would be approximately 358 feet high, or the equivalent of a 30 to 35 story building. Heck, my 1,391,361 pages could outdo that!
Perhaps I should shoot for the height of the Empire State Building (1,250 feet), but I’m going to need more bookcases!
