Several happy birthdays!

My wife, her sister, and my younger [and only!] brother have their birthdays within a four-day period.

Happy Birthday to all of them!

Two interesting birthday-related cultural differences between the U.S. and Australia.

1) They blow out the candles on the cake -- THEN sing ''Happy Birthday''; I'm used to bringing in the cake, with the candles lit, while everyone sings.

2) They don't do ''cake and ice cream''. They do... cake. They don't think to pair up ice cream with it.
