It’s Grania’s birthday!

I erroneously wished Grania a happy birthday about a month ago here when I saw a Facebook notification. Sadly, it was for her sister Gisela, and I erred.

But today IS Grania’s birthday, and I hope readers join me in extending congratulations to her for orbiting the Sun once again. Happy birthday, Grania, and thanks for your many posts, comments, and tips for posts!

Grania begged me not to post this, but the laws of physics dictated otherwise. Since she has the keys to this site, I hope she doesn’t go into the dashboard and delete this!

    “The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older”

    Even though the sun may beat us all, remember that we all still share the same sun and possibly breathe some of the same air. Take a few moments today to be happy to be apart of it all.

    I have no fear Grania will go into the dashboard and delete this. She wouldn’t dare delete such a cute kitten! 😎

    “They say it’s your birthday, happy birthday to you..”
    An Irishman might score a try in the big rugby clash tonight, Irish and British Lions vs the all blacks just for you, if not I don’t suppose you would care either way or anyhow anyway, but if it does come about….
    I’m gonna go wow! Grania’s try.
    The Prof (E) is making sure you can’t squirm out of all this deserved attention, good on him.

    Happy birthday, Grania, and thanks for all your posts. The laws of physics did not dictate this, I did it of my own free willy. (If anybody thinks otherwise, please spell out the specific law that governs birthday wishes and who discovered it. Thank you.)
