Not so sure about the "wiser" part.
Noteworthy events that took place on November 6 (besides my birth):
* Abraham Lincoln elected President.
* Sweden begins a tradition of eating Gustavus Adolphus pastries to commemorate the king.
* Meet the Press debuts on TV. (I still miss Russert.)
* The Iran-Contra Affair is revealed. (Good times. Good times.)
And today is the Kona Coffee Festival on the Big Island of Hawai'i. (I'll drink to that!)
Am heading off in a few to meet up with a graduate school friend who is in town for a couple days. He's a respected professor and published author now. And me? I blog. (Guess who's paying for lunch? Actually, it will probably wind up being me.)
Anyway... Happy Birthday to Me -- and to Sally Field, Rebecca Romijn, Mike Nichols, Maria Shriver, Glenn Frey, John Philip Sousa (even though he is dead), and many others -- from Sir Paul and the band!
