  2. Happy birthday!

    So jealous you got to dance on stage with Elton; I saw his show in Vegas, and he is SUCH a great entertainer.

    And hurrah for Australia; I've only been to NSW, but looking forward to going back someday to see more or just up and moving to Sydney, one of my favorite cities.
