AD 1036.... 5 February... Alfred Aetheling dies. He was one of eight sons of Ethelred the Unready and brother to Edward the Confessor.

Ethelred the Unready... I have a friend like that... she’ll be late to her own funeral because she wasn’t ready.

Anyway,
I always thought there are exactly 1037 badger hairs in a good quality shaving brush but it turned out I was wrong. It takes a lot more.
But it’s how many weeks a badger hair shaving brush will last, on average.

Ealdwita (humerous) snippet.........Some historians believe that 'Confessor' wasn't Edward's real nickname. It was rumoured that before he became king, he ran a small sweet-shop in Camden High Street and was called 'Edward the Confectioner!

1044 is the number of times Helen will have a stress attack because the count doesn't match the number of posts.

1045 is the number that messes with her mind.

Thank you, thank you, thank you... thank you both... I thought I’ll have to rush to the bathroom and count the tiles to calm down and resist the urge to skip the number :D

1048 people captured by partisans by the end of WWII in Gorizia area (on then undetermined border between Slovenia and Italy), never to be seen again.
Real fascists run away, those who were not communists but thought they are clean and therefore have nothing to fear of, stayed. And died. You could say they died from naivety. Combined with communist custom of executing anyone literate.

In 1050 the brewery of Weltenburg Abbey is first mentioned, thus making it one of the oldest still operating breweries in the world - says Wikipedia, just so you don't think I can write full sentence on my own.
