On Saturday, December 13 (12-13-14) I celebrated my 50th birthday by having a party at Poor Richard's in Bloomington. Many friends and relatives came by throughout the day to wish me well and it was great to see so many friends from different times in my life. Thanks to Elizabeth for doing all the work and throwing a great party for me.
