Doris is 11

 Marketing Doris is 11 years old

So, on Monday 8th January Marketing Doris celebrated 11 years in business.

I say celebrate, I didn’t remember until Tuesday - but it’s still a big deal and I’m delighted that a decade (and a year) on we are still providing marketing services to our customers.

Thank you to our customers, suppliers and business associates for your continued support and to mark the occasion, here are 11 fun / trivia facts about the number 11.

  1. Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon.
  2. Tin celebrates the eleventh-year anniversary.
  3. New York became the eleventh state of the United States on July 26, 1788.
  4. When Britain switched to the Gregorian calendar, eleven days were simply deleted. Wednesday September 2, 1752 was followed by Thursday September 14, 1752.
  5. Titanic, Ben Hur and Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King each won a record 11 Oscars.
  6. The official world record for eating cheesecake is 11 pounds in nine minutes.
  7. The word for an 11-sided polygon is ‘undecagon’ or ‘hendecagon’
  8. Eleven is the name of a character in the 2016 Netflix original series Stranger Things played by Millie Bobby Brown.
  9. In bingo, the game, 11 is referred to as legs eleven or chicken legs depending on your country of origin.
  10. The eleventh house in astrology is the segment that rules one's friendship, hopes, social relations, and desires.
  11. ‘The eleventh hour’ suggests urgency. Because the clock runs to twelve, this is the last hour to get things done.
