  4. Have a good one, Ben. And make the best of the three years you have left before getting to 40!!! Just kidding: I am there already and it's not so bad. It's actually the year I got to see KISS live for the first time in my life, and I've been a fan since sixth grade.

    I'll have a pint in your honor tonight! After all, all Rush fans are friends of mine ;) Benoit Dubuc#
  5. Happy birthday Ben! (ps I hate your birthday announcements - just because it reminds me within 2 months I am the same).Steve Castledine#
  6. Happy birthday. I passed the same vintage in August and my father sent me the following:

    "Inside every old person is a young person wondering what the f#$k happened"
