...but more importantly (and no offense to the Irish), it's the birthday of both Christa and Kelly!!! Yippee!! So, in the finest HF Forum tradition, we're having a virtual party with balloons...

Thanks to each of you for your birthday wishes!  And from me to my Birthday Sister - HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHRISTA !!

 In the words of the great man himself - 

 “May the strength of God pilot us, may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us, may the word of God direct us. Be always ours this day and forever more.”

                - St. Patrick (389-493)

 Sounds like a most excellent toast to me as we drink champagne, eat chocolate, play keep away with the balloons and dance like no one is watching !!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes!  I was traveling yesterday so only checked in briefly to do the necessary. It was a good day and I'm very glad to be home.  My two best friends are taking me out to lunch today and my friend in Chicago took me out for the best meal I've eaten in 100 years.  We went to a restaurant called Girl and The Goat...seriously...how can you resist a place with a name like that?? It is the restaurant of Top Chef Season 4 winner Stephanie Izard and it was just fabulous....very unique and creative, strong flavors.

I missed it yesterday, but HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY to you both!!!

Christa, that sounds like a fantastic way to spend the day! I'll have to tell my brother and his wife about that restaurant! They live in Naperville, so not too far away. :)
