My "little boy", who is almost as tall as I am, is 13 today! He is a great little guy with a razor sharp sense of humour. He will spend most of the evening shooting zombies on his XBox while munching through the assortment of goodies that he requested for his birthday "dinner". We will be going out to dinner to celebrate properly on Saturday.
Meanwhile, it is becoming clear that people are having increasing problems commenting on my blog. I will start to look into moving to a different service - any pointers would be more than welcome - assuming you can comment, of course!
