    has her birthday Dec. 26th. Easy to remember, but when she was growing up nobody celebrated it. So to give her something special of her own we observe her HALF-birthday instead, which is June 26th (see Winnie-the-Pooh). That date is harder to remember so I do have to write it down in my planner.

    Almost all my close family birthdays are in March, with the rest in September. Makes it much easier to remember them, they come in batches.

    I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"

      Christmas. When our great-grandfather was in his mid-nineties, he said he didn't need his birthday any more, and gave it to her.
