Almost everyone I know is having a birthday this month.  Well perhaps I’m exaggerating a bit.  Jacques turned 70, my cousin David has decided to stay 39 but is really a few years older than that. Gitte is probably only 29 and will stay that way forever, while Corinne, Connie, Lisa, Ilene, Hannah and Trisja have birthdays at the end of the month.   Both Olivier and his cousin Tyler turn 3 this week.  My birthday is Valentines Day.  I’m going along with David and staying 39+ (oh dear, + a lot).


It seems to me that this is a lot of candles for someone who is 3!
