Why 1060?

Maybe some of you have wondered at least once why my blog's name is One Thousand Sixty.
Well, have you ever heard of Imelda Marcos?
She was the wife of President Ferdinand Marcos, of the Philippines.
And she was a serious shopaholic.
It was claimed that she owned 3000 pairs of shoes, to which she responded:

"I did not have Three Thousand pairs of shoes, I had One Thousand Sixty".

Cynicism at its best, no?
