A Birthday Girl Who Doesn’t Eat Cake, And Other Random Thoughts

Well here it is...my birthday, and the reason 9 and 17 are my favorite numbers.

Birthdays are good excuses to measure progress and set new goals I think, kind of like New Year's Eve only I'm the only one who's doing it today.  Unless you're a Virgo too, and in that case you're probably making your own thoughtful list, you independent, analytical, reliable, observant, perfectionst, you.  Happy Birthday to you.

I love football so much I just may blog about it every week.  Last Sunday I had business meetings all day for something else I'm involved with, and I won't bore you with the story but it was NFL opening Sunday!  What in the heck were the organizers thinking?  That's chip and dip and scream-at-the-TV time, not time to think intelligent thoughts and be "on."  But I digress
