Well, today being my birthday I have spent a great deal of the morning sending thank yous to the many family members and friends who have been so kind as to send e-cards, facebook and email greetings. A big dose of appreciation goes out to all. My birthday is one time when am humbly reminded that I have a great number of kind folk who are thoughtful enough to send me wishes for a memorable day, and I am certainly having one. Thanks to you all again. My lovely wife is taking me out to dinner this evening, and we are going away for a marvelous getaway next weekend in commemoration. To her I owe a deep appreciation and the greatest of thank yous and all my love.
