March 21 is the 80th day of the year, there are 285 days remaining until the end of the year.
March 21st is the common date of the March equinox – meaning yes, I’m a spring chicken!. In astrology, the day of the equinox is the first full day of the sign of Aries. It is also the traditional first day of the astrological year.
It’s also my 50th birthday. Yikes! How did this happen?
At least I’m in good company – celebrating the big 5-0 with Rosie O’donnell and Matthew Broderick. It’s like we’re triplets…..=)
So, what’s all happened in the past 50 years? Almost too much to imagine. Color television and digital cameras. Disco and rap. Microwave ovens and the PC. The first man on the moon and Facebook.
I used to be in awe of a friend of mine who remembers the ball point pen being invented. But then I realized I was there for the invention of the iPhone and iPad. I own a Kindle Fire. Who’d have thunk it? I had arthroscopic surgery on my knee years ago and I know how to use Wifi. People live longer with bypass surgery and I can talk – or text – to anyone, anytime thanks to my Blackberry. I have GPS in my car, satellite TV in my house and can Twitter from virtually anywhere.
Amazing isn’t it?
What inventions have YOU seen developed in your lifetime that you couldn’t live without?
ps – and Happy Birthday to Rosie and Matthew! Call me sometime!
