Happy birthday Chris! Obviously, I would love to come, but it's a bit of a trek from Freiburg! I shall drink a few schnapps as a toast to you instead, ok?

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!

Happy birthday, I'll stick a candle in a pint of Guinness and drink to your health.

Happy Birthday Chris and have a good pint or two in your local pub tonight.
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.

Congratulations on your survival.

Enjoy your beer.

Just who do you think you are Don? Silvestre de Sacy? A show off? Or did you do this after a night drinking to celebrate Chris's birthday?

Hieroglyphs cannot be directly translated. Many form sounds rather than letters. For example ‘O’ this circle is a sign of the sun and therefore gives the sound ‘ra~h’ as in the God of the Sun, Ra. Others are whole words. They should also be taken in context with others within the text.

I, for one, would not claim to be able to understand or translate them. What I wrote were the most basic and simple of them all.

This one is the actual hieroglyph for the name of a God . Can you guess who? Here’s a clue - Frederick Forsyth


BTW, you have the 2nd letter correct.

I've actually never read a FF book, so this may not help! Does it represent an Egyptian god with a name of 4 letters?

Very famous FF novel. Also a famous film.

No, in English the name has 6 letters.

Glad you had a nice birthday Chris, did you get any fantastic prezzies (apart from a hangover)?
