2 reasons to celebrate

First of all, happy birthday Janet. Your love, humor and energy light up our world. Here's to 39 more fabulous years! The boys and I are filming a video for you--check back here within a day to see it.

Second, I am proud to note that 20 years ago this week, Sarah and I laid eyes on each other for the first time. For me, it has been true love ever since.

For her, not so much. Apparently it took time for me to grow on her.

I found an old photo of us (circa March 1992) and scanned it, but now it appears the Great Firewall is hassling me. I'll try again later.

Let love rule!

Life is good (enough), can't wait for spring!

Weather here blows. Maybe you will read this and say "Yeah it does." In which case, you are right.

Or maybe you'll read this and feel jealous of Shanghai's temperate winters. In which case, I feel very sorry for you.

On an unrelated note...One staple of every English-native foreigner's blog about China is wacky Engrish signs. On this important subject, I have been remiss lately, so here's my attempt to catch up.

Pick up the poop, I guess?

And please nobody panic and call Child Protective Services, but here is Emmett when he joined Desi for a little slow-motion boxing at the end of D's wu shu class.

video to follow soon.


Speaking of soon, got some birthdays coming up. One of us will be 6. Another will be one year wiser and more beautiful. Emmett wants a superhero party. Sarah has not yet declared her wishes.

Take care, y'all.
