It's My Birthday --

Yes, strange as it may seem, I was actually born at 6:48 am PWT on June 19, 1948 in Carmel, California . . . so anyone who wants to draw my natal chart can now do so (although I've no idea of why you'd want to do so).

My dear wife did gift me with a few wargaming related items (okay, she asked me to order a few for myself and have them sent to her -- which I do much earlier in the year so that I don't remember everything and they can come as a surprise).

I got four DVD titles of note:
  • "Khartoum"
  • "The Man Who Would Be King"
  • "Zulu Dawn" (yes, I already have "Zulu")
  • "The Civil War", a film by Ken Burns (actually 6 DVDs)
I also got a number of non-wargaming books and "Flames in the Punjab", a radical variant of "The Sword and the Flame" covering the Sikh Wars of the 1840s.

And tonight we will be going out to dinner . . . so turning 63 isn't all that bad.

PWT stands for "Pacific War Time", which is pretty much the same as Daylight Savings Time now.

Happy Birthday Jeff! Been 63 since March, and you're right, it;s really not that bad. We St. Mauricians will drink to your health (truth is, we'll drink to most anything so why not).

Happy Birthday, slightly belated, and have fun with that colonial inspiration package. Now you need the 1939 Four Feathers...

My thanks to all for their kind comments.

And, Rob, I already have the Korda's "Four Feathers" as well as "Gunga Din", "Zulu", "The Wind and the Lion" and a few other Colonial DVDs.
