Notable Quotes + a Birthday

Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.

Nora Ephron, novelist (b. 1941)



A beautiful thing is never perfect. (Too bad Heidi Montag doesn't know this)

Egyptian proverb



The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston, naturalist and author (1888-1968)

Today is Mr. Kenju's birthday. For three months of the year, I am "a year older" than he. As of today, we are the same age until next October. I'm sure that is exciting news for you.....lol. We are going to his favorite place in Chapel Hill; the Weathervane at A Southern Season, for lunch, with two of our children and our son's family. I'll let you know how it goes.

Happy Birthday Mr. Kenju. At least for now, you are not married to an older woman.
So Judy, in October you turn into a cougar? Your dual roles must be fun.
Love Nora Ephron.

May Mr. K have a happy birthday... It's amazing that someone from Georgetown has a favorite place in Chapel Hill. Maybe time does heal old wounds.:)

Best wishes to Mr Kenju. I once had a serious boy friend who was eleven years my junior and I remember mentally embracing September when we would be a year closer.
