Congratulations to Haytor, (Tom) on having made 58 trips around the Sun while Saturn, the father of Jupiter, (he had a large family like yours), has completed it only twice !

On this day too, (and just for information, you understand),

Boris Karloff wsa born, (1887), Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen was hanged (1910) -- (no fun day for him !) and the first Dr. Who was televised in 1963 !

Have a great day, Tom, and may those grey, Smethwick skies clear soon !

:band: :band: :band:


Best wishes,
Tel

Oh now that does look very tasty Haseeb, just glad you did not go to the trouble of sticking 58 candles on it :rofl5:

Many thanks again for your kind thought Haseeb.Will eat it later with a virtual pint of beer in my other hand. :)

Tom.

Hi Tom,

Pleased you've had a good Birthday. Makes getting older worth while...I think :question: :roflmao:

Re the weather, I've just been out hoping to open the Obs (the sky is wall to wall clear) only to find that the wind is too strong for observing. As I've said to Tony on another thread, thats the second time this week. :bawling:

Never mind eh.

Enjoy the rest of the day.

Regards. Peter.

The trouble is, like my birthday cake, is that if you have it large enough to fit 54 candles on it, it makes the cake so large that you can't lift it! :grin:
