I walked to Ohori’s for coffee this morning and took the above pic on the way home.
Thanks for the birthday greetings! I have two birthdays in less than a week. Yesterday I turned 49 according to western counting, meaning I completed 49 years since my birth, and if it takes 7 years to regenerate every cell in a body I have now completed 7 such cycles.
According to the Chinese calendar my 50th birthday will occur on February 7th. I was born during the last few days of the year of the dog and all dogs from that year, the 1958-Brown-Earth-Dog-year, which lasted from February 4, 1958 until February 4th, 1959, celebrate their 50th birthday on the Chinese New Year Day, which falls on the 7th.
I wish us all a year of health, usefulness and happiness. No, wait, happiness is a choice… come to think of it, so is usefulness… well, I wish us health in hopes that in time we figure out how to be happy and useful! :)
So I’m just a little past my 10th cycle. some nice new cells, Some more have been added, a few taken away, and a lot of those recent regenerated ones have rearranged quite about. Tired of being in the same place I guess. That’s interesting.
Happy birthday – for yesterday and for Feb 7th :-)
and thanks for wishing us health – although I believe that this too, under many aspects, is a choice. . .as it may be affected by our life styles, state of mind, and spiritual well-being.
Herzlichen GlÃ¼ckwunsch zum Geburtstag!, Ottmar..and danke sehr for the Health Blessings! OOO and from a fellow Dog…WOOOF!…:-)
Happy belated birthday and from a Rooster to a dog: happy Chinese birthday (although it appears you get cheated of a year!)
Yes, usefulness and happiness are choices. May your good health continue.

Happy Birthday and soon to be half a century, still too young to have a birthday in China.
I’m a dog too. best friends…
Please come and play in Seattle. Let us know when you get here, so we can come see you. Mike
Ottmar, would you have a source, to find one’s colour…as in ‘brown’ Dog?
I have been searching and have not been able to find a source, and my curiosity has me tapping my fingers…:-)
Hope you won’t mind my sending Carol a ‘tail wag’…:-)
Happy belated birthday(s) Ottmar!
Happy belated birthday!
Happy birthday! Buon compleanno! Buen cumpleano! You don’t get me , do you? Never mind, I am just one of those who saw you in a concert probably 1 years ago in Turin, Italy and have listening to your music ever since, and before than.By chance I discover that you have a diary, I say by chance because despite we live in a web generation I do not really spend so much time on it, and probably miss out on a lot, i don’t know
Fact is that I can communicate with you, it seems strange, something I desired for at least 20 years!!!
well happy birthday though a bit late!!
are you ever playing in London?
