Happy Birthday Steven!

Though it's not publicly listed I can't help but announce...
It's our Pern Astronomer's birthday today!

Dear Steven, I wish you a happy 49th and many more returns!
The best of birthday wishes from the lowest of the low countries to you there in that isolated at high altitude!

Thank you, thank you, everyone! One more year to go until the big one (then again, I thought the big one was 9 years ago, or was that 19 years ago...?? At this age I can't remember any more ).

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
