    You forgot to tell that you have always been early, in fact, came into the world early. I was sucheduled to give birth to you on July 7th, 1977 but you had different ideas. Some things never change!(Pity your dad whose birthday is the same as Hitler's!)

    Alex, "Dubya", and "Fiddy-Cent"- that would be some strange, and perhaps violent, birthday party!
    more cows than people said...
