Do you know what a Palindrome is?

Do you know what a Palindrome is? I didn’t know it either until . . .

I became aware of this word when I read Russel Ray’s blog at activerain.com when I was selling real estate in New York and he hit a palindrome.

After I posted my blog that evening, I just noticed my points.   I had never seen a  palindrome on my points before that.   That was incredible.

Palindrome, according to Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, is a word, verse or sentence that reads the same backward or forward.

Here are some examples of palindrome.

Name – ABBA

Number – 247742

Sentence – Able was I ere I saw Elba.

How many palindromes can you come up with? Post them here under comments.
