Today's my Mom's birthday. What do you get for someone

who has everything and needs nothing?  I'm never sure which books she has read or not.  She likes to pick out her own clothing.  She has plenty of flowers and plants.  She already has tons of stinky candles and bath stuff.  I can't think of anything original.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

Today's my birthday!!! sm
just though I'd let ya'll know that!  I'm 36!!! WooHoo! Gonna be wastin' away in Margaritaville tonight! I've earned it!
My Birthday today, too (12/08) nm
Today is John Lennon's birthday. He would have been 65.
Another victim of the world's insanity and senseless violence.
Not that anybody cares, but my husband's birthday is today and he's 41.
I've always wondered about numerology. My birthday is on the 19th, my mom's birthday is on th
19th, my dad's birthday is on the 19th, and my great-grandmother's birthday is on the 19th.  All of different months, but I've always wondered if there was something significant about the number 19 that I'm missing. 
hey...it's my birthday too! Happy Birthday! Enjoy! nm
Relax and enjoy every bite!
Heck, I did not say not to wish her a happy birthday! She deserves a happy birthday.
I was just saying her birthday was on Sunday!! :) Why does everyone always want to read something negative into everything on this board. I certainly did not mean anything negative by it! I was just makin' it known WHEN her birthday was!!
HELP with Shorthand. Suddenly today when I tried to start work today.sm

my ShortHand would type only the first letter of an expansion and then take all the letters away!  I checked and the Type It button is grayed out!  I have restarted the computer and looked on the Shorthand Help menu but can find nothing that applies.  Can anyone please help me ASAP?  I am lost without it!  TIA

Perhaps you are right. This one is dated today. The original article was on Yahoo today also with

But this article states it would only affect new customers right now.  So I am upset over nothing.  I went through heck with BellSouth when they charged me a surcharge of an extra 50 a month and then would write a letter saying I had to switch to a long distance service and pay by the minute because of my "excessive" use. They told me the unlimited charge was for an average of an hour a day not somebody who worked out of their home and I needed to switch a business plan at over 200 a month charge.  I switched over to cable because of that and then to read that cable was going to charging on a per use fee and not a flat monthly fee it upset me.  It is the nature of our work, VR, only paying for VBC, having headers and footers taken away, now being charged for being on line, etc.  It just seems that everything is done to keep to insure less money.

4th is my birthday.
Can't believe how old I am. Where have all the flowers gone? Long time passing.....
You say it's your birthday....nm

What makes it worse, they wanted us to tell THEM who pays such....Good grief..

I was 36 once.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY
TO YOU !!!
Happy Birthday to You

Her birthday was Sunday. :)
It's been up there at the top since Sunday. lol
so why can't someone wish a Happy birthday
without someone else having to correct them?  So what if it was Sunday. I love BD wishes early, ontime, or late. 
Happy birthday!!!!

Tell him a very happy birthday! :)
Happy Birthday 2U!
LOVE that song....
I'm glad it's your birthday
happy birthday to you.

Let's sing along!
I remember that day well. It's the birthday sm
of a very dear, longtime friend. John Lennon was my friend's hero of all time and his hero was killed on his birthday. Just now I got an email from this friend, thanking me for the gift I sent him for his birthday--a reproduction of Lennon's report card in 1955-56. The headmaster's comment (in red) on the report card was: He has too many of the wrong ambitions and his energy is too often misplaced." His French teacher said: "A disappointing result. He is so fond of obtaining a cheap laugh in class that he has little time left for serious concentration."

Hope they lived to see John's success.

Happy Birthday!!nm
50th Birthday
I turned 50 last year. Don't know if you have access to co-worker's family, but if you do and can get some pictures, a little scrapbook is something I got that I just treasure. Mine had the internet stuff about the day in history, then prices on various things on that date, and then pictures of me and family from early years to present. Just a suggestion. Also, some of the Red Hat Society stuff is kind of fun.
50th Birthday
We did a party last year for my brother-in-law - just the regular "over-the-hill" stuff, but on the cake we had them write Happy half a century Birthday instead of using the 50 - it made it sound so much older. - I shouldn't gest - i'm almost there myself.
It's my birthday, DH says I get to pick where I want to eat.
Ohhhh, the possibilities!!!
Don't do Mother's Day as birthday is May 3rd

Kind of combine the two.  Dinner tomorrow.  Yee hah!  No dishes.

Hubby and kids (that are still young enough to be home) cook and  do the dishes on mother's day, so it's always been a nice week for me.

AND I'm a grandmom too..........  X 3.

Don't ask.     Still going uphill so far, though not far from the crest.  

Birthday suggestions
Anyone have any suggestions on something to do for a 15 year old birthday, looking to do something special/unique for my daughter, only her, her cousin and myself, open to ideas.  Thanks
my 31st birthday, that's what!nm
Thank you!!! Birthday greetings to your husband too!
Thanks for being so nice and understanding what I'm going through!
happy birthday to Lee Tkachuk! (nm)
Happy Birthday, Webmaster!

Tell your hubby HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

50th birthday ideas sm
For my husband's 50th, his brother made a card with heavy card stock, got 50 silver dollars and arranged them in the shape of a 50, attaching them to the card. (With a lower budget you could use smaller denominations).

For my 50th, my sister made up a scrap book with old photos (including old prom pictures), which I love.

For my husband's 50th we also did the poodle skirt thing (he, my cousin's husband, and my uncle-in-law all turned 50 the same year so we had a combined surprise party)
Want to send E-card for a birthday.

I want to sign up and pay for a birthday card and want to know if there are opinions of who carries the coolest animated greeting cards for the most reasonable price. 

Ladies and gentlemen, your opinions would be appreciated!


Ideas for 18 yo daughter's birthday?
She is graduating this year and going off to college in the fall. I know she doesn't need knick-knacks. I want to give her something special.
Happy Birthday, flybye! (nm)
2nd birthday party for the dynamic duo!

Just way too much fun!  Especially when they both pushed their little cakes away and said PICKLES!

Next year they're getting birthday pickles.

My son's birthday is on Easter this year
he will be 8. On Saturday we are going to have his birthday bash at the bowling alley...he is very excited!! On Easter we will be going to my parents house. They just moved into a brand new, three story home. They sold about 13 acres of land in the city limits of Greensboro, NC. That is a hard thing to come by. The developer will be developing 302 townhomes on the property. It will be very strange to see that when it happens. My grandmother lives with my parents 6 months out of the year. The other 6 she lives in Florida. She's home right now because of the move, so she will be making Easter dinner. I don't know what she will make, but I'm sure there will be ham. Her cooking is so good that it doesn't really matter what she makes though!! Since it's my son's birthday, (and my birthday is two days later), it will also be another birthday celebration...so there will be homemade birthday cake! Can't wait!!
I prefer pie here, too. Always have birthday pie, usually two kinds.
..sorry, all exactly 31 years apart, sharing the same birthday. nm
Happy Birthday, Frustrated!

My husband's birthday is also today, and he is 40 today too!

(I just told him that I am posting this and he said, "Tell 'em it's also Harry Connick, Jr.'s birthday, and he also turned 40!)

BTW, I agree with you . . . sorry for your plight.

We gave DH a new Ford ZX2 for her 16th birthday,
and then the next year got her a new Mustang for high school graduation. She used the Mustang throughout college and just sold it several months ago.

I felt better with her driving a new car in mint condition than an old clunker, especially since she was at school hundreds of miles away with no one to help her if she had car trouble.
I'd give the kids the same treatment on their birthday....sm
that should get their attention!
They can. Ignore 'me'. Happy Belated Birthday, Lee!
Do you want a birthday gift too? Christmas is for giving, not receiving.

What have you given your work place?
Any good ideas to celebrate 50th Birthday
A friend and co-worker turns 50 next Tuesday and we are planning a 1950s celebration here at work.We are gonna dress in poodle skirts and jeans and t-shirts, etc., but I'm looking for something else... maybe a unique poem..or any unique ideas?  Anybody have any tips?  TIA!
Blasted cold out today. It was 104 degrees last week, but it's 40 degrees today with rain.
However, I do like cozy days like today when I don't have to go anywhere.  I'm done working, the house is clean, there's chili on the stove for dinner already, and I'm just putzing around.  I think I'll go bake some jalapeno cheese bread to go with the chili.
Hubbie's birthday...pizza, salad, but the most important thing
cheesecake and banana split dessert for his birthday..... Am looking forward to it! Yuummmm!!
"Happy Birthday toooo youuuu dear Penny.
Hap Hap peeeee birthday tooooo you.

I think I would just send an email and say, I know it is a system problem, and I have been available as schedule and waiting around, but since I did have prior plans that cannnot be cancelled, I will have to sign off my regular time. Perhaps, I can add a few minutes on consecutive days to try and recoup. (this shows your commitment but HEY!!!
Happy Birthday, just make sure you have a DD and lots of orange juice for tomorrow morning!!!
