Hold On World ‘Cause I’m Not Jumping Off

Today is my birthday!  In addition to being the anniversary of my debut onto the world stage, it is also a day for commemorating many other notable events.

  • June 25th is the birthday of Eric Blair, better known to the world as Animal Farm author George Orwell. 2013 is his 110th Birthday, In fact. It’s interesting to see that nearly 30 years after the events of his seminal work 1984, our society is still actively exploring the future he envisioned.
  • June 25th is also the Birthday of Lord Louis Mountbatten, Broadway directory George Abbott, architect Antoni Gaudí, and King Crimson guitarist Ian McDonald,
  • Today in 1876, Lt. Col. Custer and the 210 men of U.S. 7th Cavalry were killed by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians at Little Big Horn in Montana, an event is known as “Custer’s Last Stand.”
  • On this day in 1967, the Beatles recorded the song All You Need Is Love in front of 400 million people during a worldwide television broadcast. This was one I hadn’t known about, and I think it’s really, really cool.
  • In 841, Charles the Bald and Louis the German defeated Lothar at Fontenay.1
  • On this day in 1178, five monks reported seeing something explode on the moon.2
  • On this day in 1638, a lunar eclipse occurred, the first astronomical event recorded in America.3
  • In 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, beginning the Korean War.4
  • In 1951, the first commercial color TV program was a show presented on CBS using the FCC-approved CBS Color System. The public did not own color TV’s at the time.
  • In 1966, the tv show Dark Shadows premiered on ABC.
  • In 1989, 1st US postmark dedicated to Lesbian & Gay Pride (Stonewall, NYC) is issued.
  • In 1993, Kim Campbell became the first woman prime minister of Canada, after Brian Mulroney stepped down. Campbell went on to lead the Progressive Conservatives to their most humiliating electoral defeat that October, winning only 2 of 295 seats.5
  • And finally, June 25th marks the anniversary of the passage of 1910′s Mann Act. From this day forth, I will encourage every one to celebrate my birthday by transporting a girl across state lines for immoral purposes.

People should feel free to send me such messages, gifts, or naughty photos as they like. 😉

  1. I have no idea what this is about, but it just sounds cool – reminds me of the Star Trek episode Dharmok 

  2. I had nothing to do with it. I was elsewhere at the time, and there are witnesses to prove that. 

  3. Again, I had nothing to do with it. 

  4. No really, I was at lunch with my girlfriend. I was nowhere near Asia. 

  5. Thanks to Joe Isham for the additional information. 

A very special birthday

I’ve long fallen out of the habit of publicly commenting on birthdays, mostly for fear that I’ll eventually forget someone and offend them terribly.

But today is a day I always want to note: the birthday of kitanzi, the best wife and partner I could have ever dreamed to have. You fill my life with joy and happiness every single day.

Happy birthday, love. Here’s to many more.

Happy Birthday!

No matter what happens, I know that I will never have a completely bad day, because every evening I come home to you. And that makes my world a better place, every single day.

Wishing the very happiest of birthdays to my darling wife and partner, kitanzi.

Happy birthday, darling…

Since it’s National poetry month, I think I’ll mark today with a poem.

A Sonnet of the Moon
by Charles Best

Look how the pale queen of the silent night
Doth cause the ocean to attend upon her,
And he, as long as she is in his sight,
With her full tide is ready her to honour.

But when the silver wagon of the moon
Is mounted up so high he cannot follow,
The sea calls home his crystal waves to moan,
And with low ebb doth manifest his sorrow.

So you that are the sovereign of my heart
Have all my joys attending on your will;
My joys low-ebbing when you do depart,
When you return their tide my heart doth fill.

So as you come and as you do depart,
Joys ebb and flow within my tender heart.

A very happy birthday wish to my darling kitanzi, the best wife, lover, partner, and friend anyone could ever hope to have.

Being a Gentleman of Leisure – Part 1

Since last week was my birthday, I decided to treat myself to a small vacation, and took Wednesday through Friday off to enjoy some leisure time. A mental health holiday, as it were. It I had quite a good time doing it, too.

On This Day

I couldn’t let the day go by without wishing a happy birthday to my beloved kitanzi, the best wife, partner, lover and friend that anyone could ever hope to have.

Happy birthday, love. I hope it’s full of magic.

Happy Birthday

I don’t usually mark birthdays here, because I know that I’d forget one sooner or later, but I couldn’t let the day go by without saying Happy Birthday to my darling sweetie, aiela. Hope your day is full of magic, love.

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday to my beloved sweetmusic_27! Hope your day is full of magic, sweetie!

Happy Birthday!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish a happy birthday to my lovely faraway sweetie, aiela

Happy birthday, love! I hope it’s a great one!

Happy Birthday to Hugo

Happy Birthday today to Hugo Gernsback (1884-1967), who in 1926 founded Amazing Stories magazine, ensuring that, as one thing led to another, I’d have something interesting to do on weekends. 🙂
