I am Honored and lucky to be one year older :)

 I think I AM very honored to share a birthday with some of the folks below...me, Trump, Che and Boy George, now that is a motley crew, lol!
    Favorite birthday memory:  When I was three my mom happened to drive down University Avenue in Palo Alto, and it was lined with flags.  I beheld this with amazement, and asked her "how did they know it was my birthday?".  She replied, "Well, I don't know how they knew".  The annual birthday drive up University became a tradition, until, that inevitable time that it joined the ranks of Santa and the Easter Bunny.
