How many candles? "Set the da** thing on fire!" (Movie, Murphy's Romance)
A friend sent me to this web site. You type in your birth date and it gives you a bunch of useless, but interesting, information.

For instance, in Spanish my name means "pretty," but in German it means, "snake!"

Other useless facts:

My number is 11. The number 11 is associated with idealistic concepts and rather spiritual issues. Accordingly, it is a number with potentials that are somewhat more difficult to live up to. (That's right. I want to be idealistic but the spirit of nonsense keeps getting in the way.) You have the capacity to be inspirational, and the ability to lead merely by your own example. (Right again, many a unsuspecting follower has found themselves someplace they didn't know they were going.)

The positive aspect of the number 11 expression is an always idealistic attitude. Your thinking is long term, (darn right) and you are able to grasp the far-reaching effects of actions and plans. (That's right. I'm planning a hostage takeover--everyone will be forced to come with me on a nonsense trip to do nonsensical things. Like checking out all the restaurants that make good chocolate cake. We will have a rating system. And we will eat cake many times. The far reaching effects will be laughter and fun--and probably pounds but let's not think of that right now. Well, the Scottish Dreamer won't gain any--she inhales eclairs by the half dozen and never gains an ounce.)
Who could resist this?

I can boil 7.31 ounces of water with the candles on my cake. With all those candles I can probably heat the whole house. So, if you're cold--it's cold, here in Utah today--come on over, I'll light the candles and warm you right up.

And we'll eat cake.

Happy Birthday, Actually a lot of the site seems somewhat accurate for you. Your example is amazing, you do have an ability to grasp far-reaching effects of actions and plans and you think long-term. You are wonderful and amazing and deserve wonderful chocolate cake.

Happy Birthday Dear Lynne. I didn't know that your birthday was so soon when I made a surprise visit to you last Monday. If I had known, we could have done lunch. However, just know I came to see you just because I love you, not because I knew that your birthday was in the near future.

Happy birthday my dear Auntie! I hope that you're having a great day, too. We definitely don't need the extra heat here in Hawaii, so I guess I'm glad I don't have quite that many candle on my cake yet!

And speaking of chocolate cake. I ended up making chocolate cupcakes today!

I've set some aside for you for your birthday. However, I don't want to jeopardize your efforts at no sugar, so when you are eating sugar (be it tonight or a week or month from now), I will pull these out of the freezer and you can eat to your heart's content.

They have your name on them, so just shoot me off an email.

Happy Birthday to a wonderful woman!

HI Lynne,

Happy birthday to you! You are one of the dearest people in my life. Thanks for being you. I treasure all my memories of our visits and the little gifts you gave me as my visiting teacher and neighbor.
