Widget continues the tradition of *The Threes*.

Widget is named after the star Rigel, the brightest star in the constellation
Orion.

Rigel is a system of three stars: Rigel B which revolves around Rigel, Rigel C which
revolves around Rigel B, and, of course, Rigel. The distance between Rigel and Rigel B is about 23
light days. Rigel C is very close to Rigel B (relatively, of course!). A small
telescope will detect Rigel B.

Widget was born at 40 weeks, 2 days. When adding up
the digits we get six, a multiple of three. The year 2004, when adding up the
digits becomes 6. We've been there already. His term of 40 weeks, 2 days
represents 282 days total. 282 days is a multiple of three (94). Further, like his mother, the date
of his birth also contains threes. The date of the 27th, has several threes
intrinsic to it aside from being a multiple of three. The digits add up to 9, a
multiple of three, in fact, three squared. Coincidentally, 27 is three to the third
power!

We welcome Widget with love, joy, and excitement.
