Happy birthday, bb! You show me a whole different side of life (that is somehow not so different from my own in many ways).

I adore that you like George Thorogood! My husband and I are going to see him in concert with Johnny Lang at Grand Casino in Hinckley, MN, in August; I have a "guilty pleasures" post percolating in my head to put up on the blog then.

OH no I missed it! Happy late birthday!!!

I love your lists, have always loved your lists, and I heartily agree with number 16 and with number 49, but with my Chinua. And we drink whole milk and I love living with four men, although mine are younger and I'm really excited that you're going back to Positano!
