    Hope you get an "M" for your birthday:)

    A day late

    Thanks for all the good wishes.

    Didnt do anything yesterday apart from spend the day going back and forth to Mums and looking after her.
    Between times I sat at the computer trying to sort out the mess regarding the Family trust/Orchids that someone related to me dumped in my lap. At the end of the day I concluded that the only option is to recommend to my sisters that we close the business .........which means that my birthday present from my father is to make me unemployed. ( Its a long story)

    This year really sucks. However, the best present I did receive are the smiles mum gave me when I was with her. They are priceless.

    Happy Birthday!
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Happy belated birthday and best wishes.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Happy late birthday to you Alec! Hope your year turns around and becomes a good one for you. Mine began New Years weekend with two weeks of the flu! That sucked too! My wife and I both had it but we're okay now.

    Happy Birthday Alec. Donna said hi and Happy Birthday

    That present you got from your mum was a present to cherish!

    Sorry to hear about the orchid business. That sucks. I know it works you like a borrowed mule when it's time to cut, pack, and ship, but it's money.

    I have this day late thing...but none the less, perhaps your Valentines Day will be better than your birthday turned out. Hope that doesn't mean another year without you at the shot....we sorely miss your sunny smile, bet you got it from your mum.
