Happy Birthday General Thread

  • Yes a special happy birthday to EricR. Eric has had an account here since 2016 and has been a good friend during that time, It's interesting how patterns tend to repeat, and I don't think Eric would mind my saying that he has always struck me as someone very similar to our Joshua -- similar "radio" voice, background in Buddhism, poetry, and very creative.

So you can imagine the kind of reaction I can expect from being so independent and declaring the value of a free mind.

    Anyway, thank you so much for thinking of me.
