It's my birthday!

So I'm now 41 (prime number!) and indeed thankful to have lived another year.

Some of you may think that all I do is bitch and moan, criticizing left and right, but I am totally aware of how lucky I am, and how lucky we are. I just want things to be better.

The photo is from Nicaragua, and I asked Anne to take it because I was particularly chuffed with my freedom to travel and enjoyment that it brings.

Anne and I should be somewhere in the Tetons today, but you can rest assured that I am thinking of more fun things to do, projects to tackle, truths to "out," and life to live.

Oh, and it's great to have such good readers, colleagues, friends and family in my life. I'm a commie as far as sharing a good joke, a clever insight and a cold beer. Thanks for being here.



  1. Happy Birthday David ... just wanted to say how much I continue to appreciate (and rely upon) your no-nonsense approach to water. Keeps my own Neptunian tendencies in check. May the coming year be full of fun and fact!

  2. Happy birthday, David!

    I thought I'd take a moment just to let you know that I appreciate your blog. Hope you enjoy your travels.

    Best wishes.

    Want a job?
    Here is an opening.
    You get to try creation of a water market immediately and, for an appetizer, you get intense political conflict and unstable economics.

    Happy birthday.

  5. @Eric -- that's no present. That's just politics and corruption. (Oh, wait, yes, that's a present :)

  6. Happy Birthday, David!
    Wish you luck and many successes in your project!
