Greetings from Snowy Minnesota

Hi folks, that's right... It's finally acting like winter again in Minnesota.

Above image stolen from It's cold. (About -6°C) and breezy. It's been pretty grey since my birthday on the 16th. And to be honest... Due to My Lady and I both wanting to go ice-skating, we're both rather happy about that. Nothing like buying skates, and then being forced to NOT skate due to unseasonably warm weather! Gah!

Okay... First, a big thank you to My Lady and Mick and Joann for a fun birthday celebration at the Dubliner in St. Paul:

Guinness toasting at my birthday

And thanks also to Tim, Lucy, Anastasia, and other's for happy birthday texts from abroad (and in the case of Tim, Nevada) and also to Matt for the "Happy Birthday" song on my voice-mail!

I had a nice birthday, and it was very enjoyable. Yes... I drank a lot. No, I didn't drink so much to be sick... And yes, I had a wee bit of a hangover yesterday.

I do have a bit of political ranting that I want to get off my chest, but y'all will have to wait for tomorrow, as I'm trying to keep my happy "thanks" entry separate from "Tuckmac the angry tree-hugging hippy socialist" entries!

So... Thanks! I wish you all a good (yet cold Minnesotan) day!
