Oh no, here we go again with the birthday plus your age = 111 stuff! :)

Yes, I do think 2011 is a monumental year, perhaps the year of our departure
and signs are everywhere.

That being said, this whole birth year plus your age this year is 111 stuff
that has gone viral on the internet needs to stop.  Of course it will add up
to 111, because all everybody is doing is adding the number of years since
the year 1900 (assuming you were born in the 20th century- if you were born
in 2000 or later, it will add up to 11 since you are counting the number of
years since 2000).   Think about it- if you are/will be 40 years old this
year, you were born in 1971.  71 is the number of years since 1900, and 40
is the number of years that have passed since 1971.  Obviously it will be
111.  Next year it will be 112, in 2013, it would be 113, etc. etc. etc.
All you're doing is counting the number of years since the year 1900.
There's nothing weird or strange about it at all.  If you use this as a
"sign" of the end times to witness to others, you will only damage your
credibility.  Talk about the Biblical signs instead.

There are many signs all around us, but this is not one of them.  It is just
simple math and common sense.
