Part of this year's twenty. Geez, I'm getting old.

As you might have noticed, today is my birthday and I want to take a moment and say thank you for all of the nice comments and birthday wishes you have made over the past few days.

I am sincerely humbled to have such a friendship with you.  As I always say, I have the best friends on the web.

Tonight, when the cake rolls out and the candles are lit, feel free to step in and help me blow out the candles.  I have a feeling we all have the same wish.

Thank you again,

Just Hopin
