Generally I tell people that I share a birthday with Waco and Oklahoma City. Now I guess I’ll have to add Pope Benedict XVI to the list. The suggestion at my house was that it would be a lot easier if they used red and green smoke instead of black and white (dark and light grey).

My birthday presents today consisted of a wardrobe full of Therap clothing (everything is orange!). This goes all the way back to when the Mets first brought out their orange batting practice jersey, but that’s a long and not particularly interesting story.

What is interesting is that my kids manged to persuade my wife to spend way too much money on a Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable) for me. Lots more on this I’m sure as I start to play with it.
