I live just north of the secret Valley of Tall Gears, where 90 is a casual Sunday drive and 75 feels like an endless school zone.

Oh, if we're doing history on our birthdays too, I was born the day that Star Trek debuted on Broadcast Television... December 17, 1966. See? I was destined to love SciFi.

'68, so I fall on the cusp of the GenX-ers, and I'm waiting for skinny ties to come back...

on the other hand, I share a b-day with such notables as Tamurlane, Hugh Hefner, Tom Lehrer, and Cheeta the Chimpanzee.  Ooo, and Jenna Jameson...

Strangely enough, I think that combination explains my personality...
