Happy belated birthday, Robin.  My birthday's Friday (I'll be 52),  
but there's always been some disagreement in my family about it,  
because I was born on Guam, on the other side of the International  
Date Line, so my uncle, who was born on the 18th always claimed we  
had the same birthday.

Enjoy Japan!
