Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to me! Having completed another orbit reasonably successfully, I figure I'll stay on this ride for another spin. The timing of my birthday is funny, it never falls on Thanksgiving, but is sometimes the day before, so throughout my childhood, Thanksgiving tradition included birthday cake. We handled this awkward timing by going out to a dinner celebration on Saturday. This was lovely, and reinforced our affection for a very nearby Italian restaurant as an excellent go-to for special occasions.

Being blue, you're supposed to grant wishes, not receive them.

It might be another loop around the Sun, but remember due the various movements of celestial bodies, you have never been in the same location for more than an instant in your entire life.

Free at home Covid tests available starting Monday
Hmm, I just got a bunch a month ago.
In Argentina Covid is now forgotten, though we had a very high full vacunation acceptance, near 80%, and most everyone masked in its moment -asian like-.

So, last registered death: march 6th 2023, not one since then.
