Happy Birthday to me, happy birthday to me
« on: 13/11/2008 08:02:47 »
So, I now enter the final thirtieth year, and consequently look forwards to a bit of a biggie next year. Those of you who are quick off the mark will have worked out that I am now 39. But 39's a bit of a dull number, isn't it? Are there any sassy things that involve the number 39? There's a good Queen song of course (`39), but what else?

The 39 Steps. John Buchan.

Geburtstag Glücklich (Translaion according to worldlingo.com) Probably wrong.

Happy 39th Birthday!

                 

Thirty-Nine Squares Chess, or TNS Chess is a chess variant,

invented by Andy Kurnia in June 1998, for the contest to

design a chess variant on 39 squares. ...

Happy Birthday Dentstudent, nothing wrong with 39 and (lol) look
forward to your next 12 months.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

OK I want my 15 minutes of fame too. November 2, 2008 was my 64th birthday. I made no consequence of it because all I could remember was the song from the 70's "... will you still feed me, will you still need me, when I'm 64?"

My dear, Thank you. I do love you dearly. Can we arrange an "accident" for the other man in your life?
