    Oh NO!!! Somehow I missed BD's birthday?????
    I feel so terrible. Well, Happy Belated Birthday, and I agree with dougroc, you do look really young. Of course, compared to me, you are young! LOL (I won't use that terrible phrase, "well preserved" because I always think it makes it sound like the person is dead.)

    I've gotta ask one thing. When you were a kid, was it a pain to have a birthday so close to Christmas? I know several people who have expressed that sentiment.

    So, I've heard of atomic clocks, but have never seen one. What do they look like? Any photo?

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Thanks Joan!

    And Rob, hahah... glad you did not call me 'well preserved' and thanks for the birthday wish. It is funny, actually, as a teenager I wanted to look older so people would take me more serious. Now, as I am hitting the middle age marker, I am so happy that I look a little younger than I actually am. My current avatar photo was taken last year on December 24th at my sister's wedding. I need to update it again.

    Regarding birthdays and Christmas... well, it was hard. I always hated when people would send a Christmas card and write '& Happy Birthday' inside it. LOL. Now, it really doesn't bother me. I don't celebrate my birthday very much; I never have. I mean, who wants more cake right after Christmas? Right? hehe... Now, I just go with whatever is going on and enjoy a little 'after Christmas' shopping prices. I decided I wanted to get a new computer monitor for my computer. My computer is either four or five years old now and my current monitor takes up too much space on my desk. So, I started looking on-line for a new one. I wanted to get a flat one, but once I saw the prices, I decided I will have to wait until I pay off my 'Christmas' credit card bills. I could not believe monitors are so expensive. (300+ Dollars!) So, for now, I will be happy with what I have. LOL!

    Regarding the atomic clock. I have not hung mine up yet, but here is a photo of what it looks like.


    Cheers,
    BD

    My my my! Aren't I a forgetful girl? Happy birthday Bruce! Sorry for the late response...however I'm sure you'll accept my wishes for you! May you find ever lasting happiness (well...sometimes it feels like everlasting!), friends that come when in need (aren't they the best kind) and inspired creativeness (although obviously abudant in you)! Thank you for this, and by "this" I mean all the work you put in this forum...It really helps A LOT of people in places you've never been before. Have a great year!

    BTW I also have an atomic clock+weather station, but the nearest atomic clock is in Frankfurt, Germany so when it tunes to it, it's always one hour back.
    I kinda like it though...plus when I have people over, they always think it's still early and stay a little longer! (and drink a little more :P)
