    Default What type of tree are you?

    Here is something I got in an email that I found to be fairly accurate. See what "tree you fell from." Some silliness for all to enjoy!

    Find your birthday and then find your tree. Then you can read below to see what each tree means. BTW, I was an Apple Tree (Dec. 27).

    Cheers!

    Gosh - makes me wanna blush, although it seems I must be a bit schizophrenic (dependant, independant and likes complications???) and of course except for the last 3 words. I would forgive anyone who deserves forgiveness... to bad there aren't that many around... LOL

    Now, have to go look up Rowan Tree to see what it looks like, never heard of it before...
