It has come to my attention that we are in serious need of a party at JavaRanch! Even deep in the woods folks are talking about the fact that TODAY is Kathy's Birthday and the celebration has not yet started .
She has given us such a gift by sharing her knowledge and talents - but I don't really have a gift to give back (they won't let me in WalMart :roll: ). So instead, let me be the first to thank her for giving me a "home on the range".
Speaking as one "party animal" to another - "Happy Birthday" Kathy

Happy Birthday, Kathy!
[CG]: Gee, wish that I had known last week.
See Cindy, you really should hang out with this Moose character more often. It's a good thing someone else is paying attention to this sort of thing.

I'll subscribe to the theory that its gotta be June 19th somewhere in the world so this isn't really a belated message.
Happy Birthday Kathy! It was great meeting you last week. You kick ass. Hope you had a great day!

Happy Bday Kathy. June 19, Hmm that's a pretty famous day down here in Texas and most of the South. It's also by brand new son-in-law's birthday.

Hey I was in Barnes & Noble yesterday and your Headfirst Java was on a special table for computer books, right out there in the open for everyone to see! I felt like shouting to everyone "HEY I KNOW THAT CHICK."
But them I remembered what my third grade teacher taught me about using my "inside" voice, and thus avoided making a scene. =)

Well, now that I've returned after being on the road for two and a half weeks, here I find all these Happy Birthday messages! This is my first time back online, so I'm really sorry I didn't see this earlier.
Thank-you all!! And it was soooooo fun to meet so many of you in person at JavaOne, and especially to see what Cindy really looks like without the hat, what Jessica looks like when separated from her MINI, what Jim Yingst *really* looks like , that Mark Herschberg was miraculously able to keep us awake -- with his REALLY cool program -- despite tremendous odds against it (staying awake, not the really cool program ), and more...
And this year, I spent my birthday in total bliss -- sitting on a lawn chair at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, ending the night with a fabulous set from String Cheese Incident. I'm not a big jam-band fan, but I swear that listening to them live should be illegal. It's that mind-altering.
Then again, it might have been the altitude.
Or that cookie that really didn't taste like oatmeal.
Anyway, thank-you all again for all these birthday wishes! And thanks to Valentin and everyone else who helped out on the EJB Cert forum while I was gone. I'm still in recovery-mode, but as of tomorrow morning I'm back in work mode, and chained to my desk until the next book is finished.
Cheers,
-The Cowgirl formerly known as Kathy

(Hey Moose, I'm pretty sure that the Walmart in Golden Colorado will let you in, this bein' a wild west kinda place. Marilyn can probably confirm it. So, next time you're in these parts, you know, I'm happy to accept a late present )
(Note to Rob Ross: It's OK to use your "outside voice" in the bookstore anytime you're near my book. It's a special O'Reilly thing.)
