Re: Thanks EF!

Enjoy ..... but soulless computer generated - probably from The Local's editor.

Every year I get a birthday card from Ikea offering me a free eat or drink at their restaurant - always nice that someone remembers.

I'm so balanced I barely move! Decisions are not my best side..... Just check out my first EF posts :-).

However, I'm a loyal Libra and always want to do what's right :-D

me too. Only that the very thought of their shop spoils my birthday.

If they really wanted to make my day they could send me a newspaper clipping that the store had burnt down.

The EF has never sent me anything on my birthday BTW.

I would guess only that only those that have opted to include their dob or birth date (minus the year) get one - even with the investigative journalistic talents of The Local, at hand, they would need some help.

Re: Thanks EF!

I subscribe to a few vBulletin forums, and get a plethora of these birthday wishes, all sounding remarkably similar.

Oh well, at least it helps me to remember my user name and the email address I used.

P.S. Mirfield would like to wish a Happy Birthday to darkhorsedrea.
