Chris Locke turns 60 on Monday, He asks that, in lieu of flowers, please send cash. Or Amazon gift certificates. Or just enjoy an original pre-framed (in black) Cluetrain Reunion Photo, featuring JP Rangaswami, Cluetrain’s 5th Beatle. As chance and obligation both had it, JP and I flew to Denver from the UK for Defrag, and are now back in England at yet another gathering. Also, JP will turn 50 or something on Monday as well. I don’t know how old Neil Young will be, but he’ll also be flipping a year that day, as will my daughter Colette. I don’t want to know how old she is now, and she probably doesn’t want to rest of us to know, either.
Anyway, that photo calls to mind a line from P.J. O’Rourke: If I give up drinking, smoking, and fatty foods, I can add ten years to my life. Trouble is, I’ll add it to the wrong end.
Happy Birthdays, everybody.
