    Next Sunday, of course, is the great feast of St. Catty's Day! Get your cat ears and gold glitter whiskers ready!

    I got to hear lots of music by women composers on the radio. It was a Good Thing.

    You mean you weren't listening to Das Rheingold live from The Met? (I actually missed most of it as well.)

    Oh, I listened to Rheingold! But I heard other music as well.

    It's 3.14, Pi day! Go eat some pie, or have a slice of pizza.

    Some restaurants are having specials for the day.

    My mother died on this day in 2009. Still missed and often spoken of by all of us.

    Today I am forty-eleven. Still not actually come to terms with being an adult...
  • Happy Birthday KarlLB
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Many happy returns, KLB! :smiley:

    You can take comfort that you're still younger than me ...
  • Happy Birthday KarlLB!!

    At forty-eighteen, I have decided that coming to terms with being an adult is generally unnecessary. At best, one can be selective about when one wants to indulge in adulthood.

    Thanks all. Just got back from lunch at the Flying Childers at Stanton in Peak and a walk over Stanton Moor past the Nine Ladies stone circle to find an unknown benefactor (who will be tracked down) has left a couple of bottles of bottle conditioned microbrewery stout in the porch.

    Worse birthdays have been had.

    Thank you everyone! I had a very nice, if somewhat quiet, birthday.

    I’m forty-twenty or three score years today! And I’ve been on board both Ships for nearly 18 years. Where has the time gone?

    Happy birthday, Miffy! I hope it was grand.
  • Remembering +Michael Perham whose anniversary was 17th but I always also think of him on Easter Monday, the day he died. Holy Week & Easter were so precious to him. I miss him greatly and know many others do, too. Prayers for his wife Alison & their daughters.
    “We are an Easter people and Alleluia is out song.”
  • Today, Easter Day, is the 93rd birthday of HM The Queen: happy birthday ma'am.

    Happy Birthday, Your Maj. We Aussies take a public holiday in June for that. It used to be officially called Queen’s birthday long weekend. Name has stuck. Any reason for a long weekend.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    We had to sing "happy birthday" twice at church this morning - once for the Bishop (59) and once for a lady in the congregation (94). HM did get a mention too. :smile:
  • Happy 50th birthday to the Open University, the organisation which changed the life of myself and countless other working class people who never had the opportunity to go to college.
  • And a happy birthday (probably) to William Shakespeare.
    :smile:

    Also, happy St. George's Day!

    ...if not to the man who actually wrote the poetry and plays. (Heresy, I know.)

    "I had that Christopher Marlowe bloke in my river boat last week".
    (from Shakespeare in Love)
    :mrgreen:
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    I'm pretty sure it wasn't Marlowe, but there are other candidates who had the education and experiences displayed in the plays. (Whoever it was seems to have had access to Lord Burleigh's library, which narrows it down.)

  • My "probably" was referring to the fact we're not sure he was born on April 23. It is certain that he dies
    d on April 23.

    I belong to the group that believes that Mr. Shakespeare wrote all of the plays attributed to him, though a few may have had a co-author.

    :notworthy:
  • RossweisseRossweisse Hell Host, 8th Day Host
    The man from Stratford did not have access to Lord Burleigh's library; he did not have any education worthy of the name - and that disqualifies him.

    (My brother, a fervent Stratfordian, says that this view makes me an "elitist," but that seems to be his only real counterargument: He believes because he wants to believe.)

  • Beltane Greetings!
