I have a cousin, niece and in law celebrating birthdays today.

I think I learned a new word today: Gamin. Don't recall ever knowing that one. Will it be the next Wordle?

Threaten to quit if they don't start letting you see the tweets.

I was born on a Sunday and my sister was born on Thursday.

Sunday's child is bonny, and blithe, good, and gay.

At least that's what the poem says.

I was hoping to watch the Tour of Flanders but GCN+ is the only premium channel I pay for, and they are blocked in USA because Flobikes.

I am running out of excuses to not do my taxes.

I was hoping to watch Tour of Flanders on GCN+, but I am unable to create an account due to error messages. Customer support is non-existent.

It was a very exciting finish. I won't spoil. Watch it, if only the highlights on YouTube.

I cannot view Twitter links from work. In fact, I cannot even see your link in your post. There is nothing there. I can only see it now that I have quoted the post.

That's the way of most images for me.

Interesting. We had one of those in April 1987. In southeast Ohio. We lived on top of a half mile long hill, and didn't consider descending in our 4WD Subaru. There was a party we wanted to attend.

We have no real family coincidences- kids are 17 months apart to the day is about as close as it gets and my oldest was born on Flag Day.

I have the honor of sharing my birthday with Easter this year. I think itís the first time ever.

Now that you mention it, I was born 15 months, to the day, after my sister. And less than 24 hours after my wife.

YMMV

I usually get the best Motorola I can get for less than $250. Actual price paid has gone up and down though. I spent $189 for a Moto in 2016, then $239 for two (BOGO!) in 2019. That one was a little slow though, then I broke the speaker so $229 for a single phone again in 2021.

I can't think of any Thursday songs, other than a couple that mention every day of the week.

In lieu of that, here's a nice Tuesday song, with train content

Be careful on your birthday, Lester.

This guy bought a new Ferrari on April 1, and crashed it within 2 miles of the store. No other cars involved.

Driver Buys Ferrari Then Crashes It In Less Than Two Miles (msn.com)

Got away from her/him. Too much car.

Not enough driver.

One time at work a company or so ago, we were talking about birthdays, and I discovered that a woman I worked with not only had the same birthDAY, but the same birthDATE, and it turns out we were both born around Noon, but she was older because she was born in Eastern Africa, whereas I was born in upstate New York.

I'm semi-ashamed to admit that I hardly know any Bowie after the "Tonight" album.

I do have this song on my phone, because I was a HUGE fan of Uncle Floyd that one year of my youth I spent in New Jersey.
