I remember Alix saying once that she likes to read. One of your gifts could be a gift certificate to her favorite bookstore. How about a tea or coffee or chocolate or wine basket that you put together with the gift certificate in it. Ken don't forget the flowers!! I love getting flowers for my birthday.

Well, I've already got the knee brace....how bad could a neck brace be....especially if it means a cleaner floor?.....

I guess it's off to the local "John Deere" vaccuum shop....now that Alix told me the 'prosperity cheques' arrived today. (Our provincial government has run out of things to spend money on, so it decided to share oil revenues with its lowly subjects. )
