Here is the story that was not posted earlier because I did not give it a title.

It has to do with your comment above about finding people at a party with the same birthdays.

That happened to me at my 45th high school reunion where a lady at my table was born on the same day in the same hospital, the same place. That not much of a coincidence as we were already temporally and spatially filtered by being in the same high school class.

What was more interesting was that I was in dire need of new accomodations in the Boston area. I work inCambridge.

Well, she has a college room mate who she has maintained contact with for over 40 years, who lives in Cambridge. And she new that her former room mate had a spare room that was not being rented due to a previous occupan6t's behavior.

Well, I got the room, which was predictable, hardly a coincidence. But what was a coincidence was that my new landlady was married to the President of Athens College in Athens, Greece where both my wife's deceased husband and son had graduated from.

I did not pray to fulfill this need. It just happened by coincidence, actually a string of coincidences.
