Thank you very much for the birthday card. :)

I have turned 25 and it has been a wonderful day so far! It has also a day of reflection, of everything I have achieved so far, and plan to achieve in the coming decades, and to put it simply, it is great to be alive, with the opportunities in life that await me!

Happy Birthday! Michael.

A Businessman's Goal

A businessman's goal---

The creation of value---

"Is joy for the soul"---

That's what he will tell you,

When life is his aim,

Sincere, not a game,

Not ash, but his name

On all that he stirs into life.

For work into midnight

Brings profit of foresight,

And knowledge of something

Brings money, his sun-king,

Till every desire is sate without strife.

Glad tide of man's May Day

Is pride in his pay-day,

But greater the high chest

Of "I have done My Best",

When filled with the gold zest

Of thoughts that he's stirred into life.

A businessman's goal---

The creation of value---

"Is joy for the soul".

That's what he will tell you.

Have a great day!

Happy b-day!

Hope you know what that is! (hint: it's pre 1900's, and it bears immense significance to the world today, and to your profession particularly. No looking at image sources either.)

I'm tempted to build one, it would be an interesting project.

Happy Birthday by the way!

Wow, thank you everyone for the birthday greetings.

FC, if I remember correctly, I would say it is Charles Babbage's mechanical computer, from over a century ago. :)

Brian, that poem was a big surprise, and also very wonderful! I treasure it immensely.
