Happy Birthday wishes to two of my favorite people:
First, Holly, who sat next to me in Mr. Zukowski's sixth-grade homeroom and has been a calming influence ever since...even from her current home in Munich. Wish you were here, or I was there. Uh, more the latter!
Then, to Mike, my favorite curmudgeon, who IS here, actually...just down the hall at UberMegaFreeSodaSoft (not its real name). But doubtless wishes he were elsewhere too.
Much love, happiness, and chocolate to the both of you, today!
