Happy Birthday to me !

Well its that time of the year again, when Father Time catches once more up with you - So here I am 61 years young, and getting grumpier by the day !

So as I enter into this my 62 second year on this little planet of ours, a few thoughts.

Why do cretins fly thousands of miles to Riga to watch SKY TV ?
Why when the trees near to the Freedom Monument were just about to blossom did Riga city council cut all the branches back ?
Why with grass near Congress Nams just about throw off its winter coat, did Riga Parks Department decide to cover it all with Earth and plant new grass seed ?
and ..........
Why has nobody sent me a Birthday card ?

But I am not alone on this day in commiserating about getting older- so do all of the following -- Happy Birthday !!
