Congrats Gershon. 51 was not such a good year for me but no reason why it can't be a great one for you. Wondering in which circle of hell you reside. I had a nice place in the seventh picked out among the heretics but they put me in a sea of lava on the eighth along with the blasphemers and sodomites. We call it Fire Island.

Happy birthday, Gary! 51 ain’t bad, and it looks like you did it right. Wait until 53, then you’ll be in your prime.

I'm sorry, man, you were robbed. There's nothing close to fifty one candles on that cake!
