Happy Birthday Cheryl!

Yes, it is Cheryl's birthday on Sunday 7 January. Just thought I'd make sure you all knew that! Cheryl is now 19359 days old! I'm posting this a day early just so you can be sure to wish her the best on her birthday.


"A year of positive gains from sustained effort and perseverance. You are likely to be more verbose than usual, so use the time to tell people what you think and how you feel."

Thanks, Kathy, for alerting me to Cheryl's birth year (1955). I don't think she'd be too happy with me adding an extra year! This makes Cheryl a horse in the Chinese Horoscope.
Thank goodness for open spaces, because the Horse needs plenty of room to roam! Energetic, good with money and very fond of travel, Horses are the nomads of the Chinese Zodiac, roaming from one place or project to the next. Love connections tend to come easily to Horses, since they exude the kind of raw sex appeal that is a magnet to others. This Sign tends to come on very strong in the beginning of the relationship, having an almost innate sense of romance and seduction. Horses are seducers in general. This Sign possesses a sharp wit and a scintillating presence; it really knows how to work a crowd. An impatient streak can lead Horses to be less than sensitive to others' needs. These colts would rather take a situation firmly in hand as opposed to waiting for others to weigh in or come to terms with it. The lone wolf inside the Horse can at times push others away, but this also makes this Sign stronger and is a key to its success. Horses are self-reliant and, though they might lose interest fast in a tedious, nine-to-five day job, are willing to do the work necessary to get ahead.

Cheryl shares her birthday with:
Joan of Arc, Sherlock Holmes, Danny Thomas, Loretta Young, Maury Povich, Kenny Loggins, Erin Gray, Trudie Styler (Sting's wife), Donna Rice, Nicholas Cage, Katie Couric, Paul Revere.
