The video I am sharing with you today is Pete Seeger singing Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" at a celebration for Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday on May 3, 2009.
So today, as I wish Daniel a happy 25th birthday, I want to wish all of you a Happy Valentine's Day. If you attempt to learn about the history of this day, you will find that everyone seems to have their own version of how and why we have come to celebrate Valentine's Day. I will let you do this research on your own. What I have come to realize in the past week is that I have many friends and relatives that have a February birthday. It is an extraordinary number. Let me see: our son Daniel(14th), Dennis' sister Vivian(19th) and brother Harvey(19th), Dennis' cousin Bob Stuckelman(19th), Dennis' cousin Joe Stuckelman(16th), Dennis' nephew Joshua Yates(14th), Dennis' nephew Jared Rubin(27th), our friend Arnold Glassman(16th), our friend Father Rick Degagne(11th), our friend Sheryl Thompson(14th), our friend Bart von Gal(21st), my cousin Harry Egan(14th), my sister Agnes Laband(13th), my nephew Steve Laband(5th) and the list goes on. Just this week as we celebrated Father Rick's birthday we both commented about all the February birthdays, so Father Rick counted back and we concluded that it must be the lusty month of May that produces all of these wonderful February babies. Come to think about it, May is the month we celebrate Mother's Day...so now we may conclude what really goes on in many homes on Mother's Day.
Happy Birthday Dan!
