    Dear Dr. Jeff McQuillan,

    Happy birthday to you!

    In my language they say:
    Tavalodet Mobarak!

    By the way, is it really your 29th birthday? So why did you put a couple of question marks after 29th?!! It’s a little bit confusing…

    Anyway, I’m so proud to be the first one who put a comment on this blog and especially say happy birthday to you.


  2. Fabio Says:

    29th ?… Were you born in a leap year?…
    Anyhow, the best birthday to you and to the… beautiful city of Los Angeles, CA (though I prefer Minneapolis much more).

    Happy birthday Jeff, I wish you all the best. Many people don’t like birthday, but I hope you will take it as a nice excuse to organize great party, which might inspire Dr.Lucy Tse to wright nice podcast for all of us. If you want, you could tell us something about all those nice presents you have obtained so far. Anyway, thank you for all nice work you have done and I wish you a lot of energy to continue in important mission you have: a teacher… Patrik, colleague from Slovakia

    Dear Jeff,
    Ive just learned about your amazing site- say, a couple of weeks now- but it’s been enough for me to listen to a few podcasts and so I’m told( by you yourself) you’re just a bit older than 29, but I guess that it’s just all right, isn’t it? I couldn’t let it go without telling you how nice a job you along with Lucy have been doing. This one more year of life must really be celebrated in style for it is reflected thru your work and generous spirit on the lives of so many people around the world, THANK YOU VERY MUCH- AND CONGRATULATIONS !
    May God make all your wishes come true and bless you today and forever,
    Happy Birthday,
    Eduardo- from São Paulo – Brasil ( although it sounds like Z (Brazil) the corect spelling is with S )
    P.S- Tell us : How does it feel to be embraced by the WORLD ?

  43. David Says:

    Hello everybody,

    I think is not Dr. McQuillan’s 29th birthday, I remember in one of the podcasts he said he have around 43 to 45 years. So probably is another of his jokes he is used to saying, you know when he says that he has a beutiful voice. I can only say that he has an excelent sense of humor.

    Dear Jeff,

    Thanks a lot for you dedication, please say hello to Dr. Lucy.
    Finally, probably is not your 29th birthday, but whatever your age is, if your birthday is around this time HAPPY BIRTHDAY! lots more with excelent health. Cya dude cath you later, lol.
