    It's Mark's birthday.
    He's 113 years old.

    He's asleep right now, but add your birthday wishes here so he'll get a surprise when he wakes up.

    So Happy birthday Mark, You Old Bastard. smile
    (btw that's a term of endearment here in Australia when stated precisely like that)

    cheers, Eric G.

    Mr. Knowles is so clever and witty
    answers, he don't write out of pitty,
    he can scorn you and strike back
    leaving prowess intact,
    and make even his errors look pretty.


    happy birthday, man ! for another 100 big_smile
