Happy Birthday to ME

Thursday December 4: Word of the Day
burgeon
These days the present participle of this verb (burgeoning) is the hands-down favorite form, outnumbering use of the finite verb by a whopping five to one. The basic idea is "grow quickly" and originally applied only to plants. It's now a fixed favorite in journalism, to refer to anything that is increasing rapidly. [blogger's note: this better be referring to my bank account and not my waistline.]



Thursday December 4: Horoscope
Forecast for 2008-2009
This year, you are anxious to put your plans into motion, but if you don't focus on one or two projects at a time, you could find you're just spinning wheels. You are certainly more enterprising this year, and taking a balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success. Your social life is very rewarding, and your popularity increases. Love settles down and is more reliable. [I am liking these last two sentences.]


2009 will be a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood [I think this means it's time to clean out the garage], not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice - let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
This is me (right) and my friend Susy on our Sweet 16th ... her birthday is 4 days before mine, but really, I'm older than she is because she came early and I was a week late ... We have been celebrating together for over 30 years now!!!

I have a feeling 47 is going to be a VERY good year for both Susy & me!
