    I am part of the Weekly Challenge team - and am updating a list of the birthdays - and I saw that you have 2!! That is so funny. And, as my son says, that is just like our government.

    My Dad was born on Feb. 29, so he just has a birthday every 4 years. So eventually I was older that he was.

    So, hope you do enjoy both days!!!

    Thank you very much for your appreciation. You made me smile. I am brown lady, because of this site, I learned to accept and be thankful of my skin. The truth is white skin and long nose more beautiful in my eyes. I like white men and women, I always appreciated them.

    I don't realized that, white skin is more delicate skin than I have. Because white skin have a sun burn problems, but me nothing. In fact I did not use any lotion at all, but my skin no sun burn but will become very brown. These pictures of mine now very brown skin now. Every time I worked in our constructions I protect my skin from sun light not because of sun burn but because I do not like to be more brown skin hehehe. If we can change skin, I love to change my skin hahaha. But now I am happy and I learned to accept my brown skin now This is my skin, I could not change it even I am inside the house all the time still brown skin. emoticon
