Don't the 70's sound like SUCH a long time ago?

1977 to be exact. Freak, I am getting up there. I was talking to my mom yesterday and she kept saying over and over, I can't believe you are 32, and then I reminded her that she will be SIXTY next year and she stopped, thankfully. Here are some WIKIfacts about April 27th.

April 27, 1810 – Beethoven composes his famous piano piece, Für Elise.
Apri. 27, 1974 – 10,000 march in Washington, D.C., calling for the impeachment of US President Richard Nixon
April 27, 1981 – Xerox PARC introduces the computer mouse.
April 27, 2006 – Construction begins on the Freedom Tower for the new World Trade Center in New York City.

Births:

1822 – Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War general and 18th President of the United States
1932 – Casey Kasem, American disc jockey
1959 – Sheena Easton, Scottish singer

Deaths:

1521 – Ferdinand Magellan, Portuguese explorer
1882 – Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist
1965 – Edward R. Murrow, American journalist

I recommend you all WIKIsearch your date of birth, kind of interesting. Anyway....

Here are the goods (some of them)! Diane gave me the orchid and Eric brought me the pom pom thingies. They smell sooo good! Eric had to work till 7 so we headed out for a late dinner at the Spectrum and of course a stop at the Apple store. I picked up iLife 09 with some bday money and can't wait to install it. Part of my present is the chance to go up to San Francisco again this weekend to see little Lucy. She is being blessed on Sunday. Thanks to all for your birthday wishes. It was a good one!

Every time I start iPhoto it asks me if I want to buy iLife. I can't wait to hear all about it. But then I might bug you someday about how to use it so you might not like that..glad you had a great birthday!

I think I use it everyday as well. I hear the upgraded 09 version (that I still haven't installed) is awesome!
