Have a wonderful day Hans with best wishes from the sunny South
I wonder if cooking your own birthday dinner is on the cards, or if you'll go out?

Thank you early birds

Maelin, you made the most out of the fact that you're living 10 hours earlier than I do... gee, that makes me ten years older than you every single day

I don't know: what a month you're having. First Santa Nik's day; now Santa Hans' day.

Did you know you have an Island? the ownership seems to be in dispute, perhaps you can claim it?

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."

Thank you all very much for the good wishes. I had a nice day with mainly family coming to visit. I don't only share a birthday with Anareth's mum but with various other persons so several of the birthday guets have to combine

I got a new Canon camera with external flash, wine, whisky, money and some cosmetics, which I don't really need of course; the cosmetics I mean, all the other stuff I do need...

Thank you

I don't know, you've gotten pretty old now Hans. Sure you don't need the cosmetics to hide your wrinkles? I wouldn't want you scaring young children or anything.

small tell-tale signs of aging...but really I don't think theres any
real need of using cosmetics...YET!!!
