Birthdays (or mine at least)

As there are so many births and birthdays going on this week I thought I would take a look at mine. Self indulgent, maybe, but if I don't indulge me who will?

I was born at Hillcrest Hospital, Merewether, NSW AUS, nearly didn't make it as the ambulance got a flat on the way and the corridor was looking good to me.
With the loss of my sister my parents wanted a girl and had not picked out a name for me (just in case) so I waited until a visitor came to see Mum who had a daughter that was good at Math, voile, problem solved (freaky bit is, I am too)

A bout of Golden Staph Pneumonia nearly ended my short life but I survived that drama and went on to live a happy life
Not that it was all peaches and cream as I did like to keep my parents on their toes.
An accident at Toowoomba in my Uncles truck, while still in a bassinet, he lost his leg and I slept through it all.
Later, when all seemed a bit too normal I decided on Epilepsy as my next option to stress out my parents.
So onwards to the rest of my life, which if I had the opportunity ,would not change a day.
All that I did, saw, experienced and enjoyed along the way has made me the person that I am today and I happy being me
So off I went to see what I could find:

Well there is some good news and some not so good news
but all of it interesting to me.

As of 3/28/2011 12:27:23 AM EST
I am 52 years old.
 I am 632 months young.
I am 2,751 weeks young.
I am 19,255 days young.
I am 462,120 hours young.
I am 27,727,227 minutes young.
I am 1,663,633,643 seconds young.

Wow, from now on I will state my age in months or weeks,
Years is just not on as I am not old
Forever young, yes
Only as old as I feel, yes (that may be when the years kick in)
but old, No

Chinese Year of the Dog
Star sign is Cancer (the crab of course)
  My birth flower is Delphinium
and my birthstone is Ruby
Ruby is said to open one's heart to I approve of that
My birth tree is the Fir Tree, the Mysterious
(Extraordinary taste, dignity, cultivated airs, loves anything beautiful, moody, stubborn, tends to egoism but cares for those close to it,rather modest, very ambitious, talented, industrious uncontent lover, many friends, many foes, very reliable.)
not too sure about all of that!
In 1958 there were approximately 222,504 births in Australia.
I met 5 of those, so still have a lot to meet in life

Celebrities who share my birthday include:

Fred Savage, Courtney Love, Tom Hanks, Jimmy Smits, Kelly McGillis , 
John tesch, Nicola Tesla, OJ Simpson, and Ed Ames

have you ever wondered about looking into yours?
Linda has and is highly recommended to pop over for a look

Wonderful post about wonderful you. Yes it has been an interesting journey for you and I wish you well as you continue on the path - so much left to do.

I wish you many things for your journey - a smooth pathway, someone to share the load (when you need that) bright stars, sunshine and moonbeams - and I know you already find wonder in raindrops on a rose.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming. "Wow, what a ride!" - author unknown but sometimes attributed to motorcycle racer Bill McKenna.

I wish you a wonderful ride.

Love and hugs,
Linda. (who may well research her own date of arrival.
