People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
Happy Birthday! Hope it is a good one!
A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. -Douglas Adams

When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Hope it's a good one!

Thanks for the best wishes, everyone. It's been a lousy day so far, with my daughter forgetting her old man's birthday while bragging about sending a friend a birthday gift over the interwebs (she's 12), then a contractor blind-siding me, with a potentially contentious BZA meeting this evening. Gosh, this is the funnest b'day evah!

Sometimes the birthday day isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Hopefully all will be well soon, with lots of partying and carrying on! All through the BZA meeting, just keep smiling! It's your day!!
"We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
Happy Birthday and I hope that the day gets better, and that you have many more "good" ones
Happy birthday, Gedunker. Hope your day and week get better!
Make the best of your day, Gedunker.
Happy (slightly belated) birthday! For some extra fun on this day after your birthday you should spend the day at the "spaghetti interchange". Have fun!
Thanks again, everybody! The BZA meeting was mostly uneventful and was followed by pleasant potent potables consumed quickly.
My Bruin friend, I'm happy that junction has no function in my daily commute.
