Thank you for the well wishes!

Just a quick note to thank all of those who sent me emails and posted comments about the 15th29th Birthday Cake anniversary of my 29th birthday. I really do appreciate it. When someone wishes you a happy birthday or congratulates you on some happy event, you can respond by saying, “Thank you for the well wishes!”

I was reminded yesterday of a funny version of the traditional Happy Birthday song that we used to sing as children. It goes:

Happy birthday to you!

You belong in a zoo.*

You look like a monkey

And smell like one too!

*zoo = a place where animals are kept for people to look at

Thankfully, no one sang that to me yesterday.

    Happy birthday to you Jeff, wish you all the best!

    PS: I’d like to also express my discontent about your site. I am a Persian native and live in Iran, but your site seems likely to be closed to our country. We have to use proxies to browse your site. I hope political atmosphere and canard about our public nation will not affect your trust.

    [Please see a response to the P.S. comment in a Sept. 26 blog entry.]

    Happy BD Jeff. Congrats on the new blog. It is a wonderful tool to keep in touch with eslpod’s listeners around the glob.
    I’d like to thank you Jeff, Lucy and Adriano Galeno for the great effort you do in eslpod. I like it when Jeff says ” coming to you from the beautiful Los Angeles California” :)

    Hi Lucy, I want to thank you for the awesome Scripts that you provide us everyday. They’re really rich in the meaning, interesting and beneficial.
    Finally, I noticed something when Lucy is talking I don’t know if I’m wrong, are you a shy person?

    I wish to see Dr. Lucy one day.
