Yes, it is my birthday today. Thank you to everyone for all the warm birthday wishes.
A few years ago I learned that my birthday has a pretty cool place in American history. 199 years ago no August 24th the British burned parts of Washington DC during the War of 1812. On the day of August 25, 1812 a tornado or hurricane, or possibly both, passed through Washington DC and storms put out most of the fires.
And so, That’s the way it was.
