Uriah Robinson said...

Happy Birthday Janet.
We have three family birthdays in the next two weeks. Have you noticed that those of us born under the sign of Aries are very mild mannered and easy going. ;o)

Janet Rudolph said...

Ye, Uriah, we are!

Mason Canyon said...

Happy Birthday Janet. Hope you have a wonderful day filled with chocolate and all your wishes coming true.

Yvette said...

Have a great one, Janet!! Chocolate cake for sure! ;)

Deryn said...

Great the cake recipe, and the list of birthday mysteries! Hope you are having a very happy day.

J. Kingston Pierce said...

Happy birthday, Janet!

To Uriah's point ... I have to say that my father, who was also an Aries, was decidedly NOT "mild mannered and easy going." But then, perhaps he was an exception in this way, as in so many others.


Janet Rudolph said...

Thanks, Jeff,

I, too, know some Aries who are not mild mannered and easy going. :-)

AnnOxford said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JANET!! Hope it was brimming with lovely surprises. Er...I've NEVER, in 37 years as an astrologer, known a totally "mild mannered and easy going" Aries.
Wishing you many, many more,

Happy Birthday, Janet!

To many more and much ado about chocolate!

My sister, who is an Aries is the most energetic and driven person I know. Is that an Aries trait?

Wendy Corsi Staub said...

I love it! And Happy birthday, Janet!

jenny milchman said...

I would never have guessed there to be so many!

Rochelle Staab said...

Happy Birthday, Janet! I hope the day was filled with everything you love.

Great list! I'm printing it out - what a clever and fun idea for an unusual birthday gift to a reader.

Janet Rudolph said...

Funny that I've never put a Birthday list together before... remedied!

The birthday bash is intense. Not for the weak.
