    ... and I'm 71 years young. :drinks:

    Got me thinking that on a previous forum someone kept track of birthdays and posted accordingly. I thought it was a nice touch.
    Is DOB information available here? If so I'd be happy to be the announcer of such special days. Don't want to put it on Mods who already do a great job.

    Any thoughts.

    Thanks Don, Troy, Ken and Peter. I'm not sure if it's even possible but do you have any thoughts on my idea of announcing Birthdays?

    I kind of lost all that birthday enthusiasm for myself when the kids started appearing (suddenly its not about you anymore), so well done!

    Happy Birthday!

    Something to think about - I'm careful about revealing my birthday in public places these days as date of birth is a useful piece of data for people building up a picture of us for criminal purposes.

    I believe the Cafe use to. But yes having that data stored in forums databases is one of those "not safe any more".

    Belatedly, Bill, hope you had a great day. 71 eh? Brilliant.

    I haven't submitted mine anywhere, not even day and month.

    Mines is a closely guarded secret ... sometimes I forget how old I am or add time on for bad behaviour!

    Hope you have a fantastic year celebrating 71 years young!

    Unless there is a very good reason for me to disclosse my birthday, e.g., drivers licence etc I simply use my Mum's birthdate. She has passed on so I am sure she will not mind and it is easy for me to remember plus I get two birthdays a year :)
