hope you have a lovely day, and get to do at least one thing you like to do! (if you're teaching today, i guess the 'one thing' won't be a round of golf...but hopefully that'll happen sometime soon!)

Happy Birthday to someone brave enough to announce his age! I hope Monty Beagle gives you lots of sloppy birthday kisses.

Happy Birthday, montyb! Although we don't actually know each other, we always look forward to reading your comments after solving each puzzle.- Brent

And although we use Brent's birthdate as our "birthday", mine is actually in October too. So, from one well-balanced Libra to another, "Happy Birthday"!- Jen

Thank you one and all good friends for the birthday wishes. It was a great day culminating with a fine dinner at Flannigan's (a nice little Irish restaurant) and receiving a 50th anniversary Doctor Who edition of Yahtzee. Yessiree, a fine day indeed!

A belated Happy Birthday to you! Sorry I logged on a day late! It is the story of my life! Hope it was a good day.

Thanks once again to all my good friends out there. Bansai, that is some memory you have there. I am glad I could bring some jocularity into your lives, although I've been known to give a rant or two in the past.

One addition to the festivities; my wife gave me her present later that day. It was the 2013 Hallmark Star Trek Christmas ornament, the USS Kelvin. Life is good!

PS -- I believe opallady's birthday is coming up soon.

I thought the most recent Star Trek film, Into Darkness was very good. My youngest son, who is a bigger Trek fan than me, didn't like it as much. What did you think, Monty?

I rather liked it, Barnabas. The producers seemed to be trying to move their version of the franchise a little closer to the original show's "history". I guess they realized they had strayed a little too far from the already well-established Star Trek story line.

It was also nice that they are giving the supporting characters some meatier parts, although they really need to quit revisiting old enemies and bring in some new original foes.

It was also nice seeing the Kirk character grow up a little. He can be a rebel without being so snarky about it.
