I did ask Tonyblack if I could use a candle to celebrate each year of your life but apparently Jason got some cheap insurance to cover the forum against fire and the fire risk from so many candles has forced Tony to reject my request :cry:

I’m disappointed ......Did I mention I like fire :twisted:

Many Happy Returns of the day Pooh.

Happy Birthday. Sorry it's kinda late. Still plenty of time in the UK but not where you are apparently!

Sorry about the insurance thing. Actually based on my current skill at choosing a good insurance company it's probably close to the truth!
