Beautiful Coincidence

I still haven't got back into regular blogging yet, but last week's excuse was my birthday (45). If that wasn't pleasing enough, imagine the delicious frisson that overtook me as I learned that I share my birthday with that of the Guinness brewery in Dublin. It was on September 24, 1759 that Arthur Guinness signed his 9,000-year lease.

And I had no idea as I started the celebrations with a tall glass of the black stuff.
