Today is my birthday,
and I think it's great.
To be half of 96
is my current fate.
What I most love about Friday Fragments is the reassurance that other people are less organized than I might have feared.
I never heard of bumpy cake until I moved to Michigan. Since that wondrous discovery of chocolate cake covered with lines of buttercream and topped with chocolate, it has been a birthday tradition for me. This year my friend told me where to find the best bumpy cake - this one covered in Sander's hot fudge. I guess that's another Michigan tradition. Just so you know, the cake has a Caution shelf-life of 24 hours.
Why didn't you all ever tell me about Friday Follow before? What fun!

Would someone please explain to me how the new health care bill which requires people to have health insurance enables them to pay for that health insurance?
I've asked my family to recycle things they already own as birthday gifts for me. Now I ask you the same thing. What great advice did you once receive from someone that you would now be willing to pass onto me?
While you're typing up that advice, ponder this: With the heat generated by 48 candles, 5.49 ounces of water could be boiled.
