    Happy birthday dorsetmike

    To celebrate Mike's Birthday, an arrangement of Happy Birthday by Igor Stravinsky made for the great conductor Pierre Monteux. It is conducted here by Leonard Bernstein

    Congrats to our B-day guy
    May your big day shower you with blessings beyond human comprehension.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Happy Birthday, Mike ...

    I'm reminded of a phrase by Mark Twain: Age is an issue of mind over matter - if you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

    Thanks guys, as for thoughts on age creeping on, ... ... ...

    I never had to study history, I can remember it happening.

    The only problem with retirement is that you don't get any days off!

    Don't think about dying .. ... ... that's the last thing you wanna do!

    Live each day as though it were your last ... ... .. ... one day you'll get it right!
    Cheers MIKE.

    And one of my favorites - GET YOUR OWN BACK ON YOUR KIDS. LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO BE A NUISANCE.

    Sorry am a little late Mike, I hope you had a lovely day, and a wish for many more.


    Every day's a birthday
    for some people on this planet.
    When we're getting older
    there are times we'd like to ban it.

    But that would be so silly,
    wrong decision, a mistake.
    For if you miss your birthday,
    you'll miss out on birthday cake.

    And even if you skip it,
    it won't matter. So I'm told,
    despite the lack of cake and fun,
    you'll still be growing old.

    Thanks for the reminder Robin.

    Mike - Happy Birthday me ol' china plate. Sorry I've not been here, I'm probably back now. Life's been a little hectic and all.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.
