Thanks you're too kind. I was going out for a gastro-pub meal in nearby Henley this evening but it is unexpectedly 'closed for treatment'. So I got a takeaway instead which involved driving and means I've missed out on the Scotch ration or until about 37 seconds from posting thi

But I hope yours has been fab DVO.

were all born on Jan 11.
Might be time to do something with your life, dvo. Get an empire named after you, discover a recreational drug, become a glass manufacturer,...
Oh, and Happy Birthday, BTW. You're the only person on this list I've even heard of, so my self-esteem lies in your hands.
Scotch on a school night ? I salute you with glug of weapons-grade Rioja. Happy birthday !
Hang on - in Username's list of the ungodly and obscure, Eva Le Gallienne's born in 1896 & 1899 - some sort of medical marvel ? That second confinement must have been a screamer.
Belated happy birthday to a fellow Capricorn.
Happy late birthday
I missed it. Happy Birthday anyway, whoever you are.
Where's Rikkor when you need him?
The genuine depth of feeling has left me feeling strangely moved and I've decided to try out another birthday next year if we can squeeze it in (we always seem to be going somewhere or doing something or other on the 11th Jan for some strange reason).
The spring rolls weren't anything to write home about to tell the truth.
Oh and 'user', please feel free to use me a job reference or in support of adoption app. etc
belated happies, deevo
I note that Jeni's mum has just had her 60th birthday.
I've got mine in March.
What a pisser.
I'm looking forward to you all clubbing together to get me an Ed Miilogram for my birthday this year.
Mum said that it didn't hurt, well, not as much as her 50th.
What is extremely scary from my point of view is that 50 is my next big birthday.
I wonder if I'll celebrate it in the same way I did with my 40th?
Which was to spend it drunk on Champagne and cocktails, dancing my socks off in a club.
Happy birthday, I had a birthday last year. I am still waiting for the results of the carbon dating to see how old I am.
