Oh yeah, and just fifty years ago, I was born too!

So thanks again to everyone that wished me a happy day, either in my F list, personally or whatever method!

I got a great b-day treat, it rained in Flagstaff (ok, for about 2 minutes, but it was enough to knock the temp down from 100F (38C) to 80F (27C), so I'll take it and gladly).

Happy birthday!

Do you want any Rosetta Stone paraphernalia? I could pick you up a keychain or a mousepad or something at the British Museum.

Thank you!

That would be cool, but even a photo would be Ok. Easier to get to me too since I don't know when I'll next be on the east coast.

Thanks again!

It was a good day, there was much pain involved.

(I think that's the proper reply :) )

And accept my too belated good wishes. Hope your day was terrific, and the year ahead all you could hope for.
