    My birthday present was a new set of tires for my bicycle. And dark chocolate reese's peanutbutter cup minis.

    I miss my wire bead tires already. These folding bead tires are a bear to get the wobbles and bobbles out of. The wire bead tires at least stayed perfectly round.

    Thanks! I've been practicing walking with a cane and saying the stock phrases: "Kids these days!" and "Get off my lawn! You pesky kids!!!" ;)

    Congrats! Alas, if I followed this advice, the Dept. of Homeland Security would have me indicted for Domestic Terrorism! :dead:
    I'm glad I lived long enough to witness the invention of indexed shifting!

    In case I miss it, happy birthday Hans!

    I get to see the big 60 in a few months, not looking forward to that number.

    Gah, we are all getting old!!! My 5 year old son can navigate Windows 10 better than I can... And to think, I used to be able to do anything I ever wanted with Windows 98 and XP....

    You young whippersnapper! My mainstay was back in the days of DOS, and CP/M on an S-100 bus (Z80 cpu) computer before that! :D

    As for the candles, I'd let 'em burn, while I sing "You Light Up My Life!"

    I don't, use candles anymore. Too many candles ruin the cake. :)
