For every proverb there is an equal and opposite proverb

"Nostalgia isn't what it used to be", but on the other hand, "The older you get the faster you were".

It is birthday time for
**Cathy Newman, 45 last Saturday. Welcome to the new age group.
**Annemarie Calnan, 50 last Monday. She only lasted two days in Cathy's age group before moving up.
**Christopher Lang, 55 next Monday. Welcome into the elite group, Chris.

Others of note to have birthdays are
*Rosemary Longstaff, 55 last Thursday (and turned up at track to see if she could break Maureen's 800m record. She didn't. She ran 2:55, just over Fran's old record.)
*Mick Dando, 72 last Monday
*Alex Osborn, Kathy Sims' grandson, 1 this Thursday
*Gary Bowen, 49 next Tuesday

Happy Birthday To You All!
