I hear you there! My birthday falls on Thanksgiving every few years, and 
even when it's on a different day, it's close enough that I don't 
remember the last time I had a real birthday cake. My mom used to stick 
a candle in the middle of the pumpkin pie. X-P) Last birthday party I 
had was... er, 1980. Been awhile.

A Dobosch torte? Oooh! Pernit me to envy you!

another holiday b-day,
