It's a secret
Thanks to all of you who've sent me birthday greetings, though I'm a little bemused as to how you knew. Have you been digging in my archives?
A couple of days ago a birthday card arrived from my father back in Blighty on the south coast. Yesterday the postman delivered another card and he asked 'Er Indoors if it was my birthday. She said "yes" and he wished me "selamat ulang tahun".
I scanned the handwriting on the envelope and saw it was from my father. Oh, I thought, another one? He must be getting forgetful ~ he'll be 89 in a month or so. I opened the envelope and pulled out the card. It was meant to be delivered for Xmas - last year.My
Look at the title.
As a special birthday treat I've decided to brag about being 9th amongst all blogs from or about Indonesia and 1st among English language blogs
I'm also posting a really excellent article by Dilligaf - When the oil runs out and the plantations run dry …
This is a 'review' of environmentalists' who think similarly to myself about the growth of plantations - biofuels rather than a cut and paste.
You can read it on Thoughts Outside The Indonesian Box and
on Green Indonesia
on his blog
That's a lot of hyperspace, but birthdays only come once a year. Shame today's not a Friday or Saturday because then I'd have a few (a lot? enough? too many?
) beers as well.
