Happy BD to Brian, without him we wouldn't be so knowledgable about our cancer and thousands of OC patients wouldn't have received the benefits of this site.

Yes, Happy Birthday Brian

PS. Is FRACK in our list of abbreviations? I can still remember googling this not realising it was Battle Star Galactica thing ...or was it Star Trek?

HBBH.

Yes, frack was BSG although as a euphemistic verb;but I'm sure there are other references (that have nothing to do with the oil industry, that is)

I love it: Godfather Frack
Brian, many many more happy birthdays.
Since you love flying, I decided to paraphrase the words to Off we Go into the Wild blue Yonder
Quote:



Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun! (Give 'er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one heckuva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing'll stop Brian and the OCF force

Minds of men fashioned a forum of thunder
Sent it high into the internet blue.
Hands of men blasted the world asunder,
How they lived God only knew!
Souls of men dreaming of cancer to conquer
Gave us wings ever to soar.
With studies and news galore, Hey!
Nothing'll stop Brian and the OCF Force!

Off we go into the wild internet yonder,
Keep the wings level and true!
WE hope you will live to be a grey-haired wonder,


Charm

lol, Yes, Happy Birthday to our fearless leader! You don't look a day past 70... laugh

Frack is from Battle Star Galactica and was their substitute for the "F" word. On the OCF forums Charm used it as a descriptor in his signature line borrowing from George Carlin's "Old "F" and substituting the BSG "Frack" for the expletive.

After an epic introduction and sensing a kindred spirit, Charm inducted me into Frackhood giving me the title of "Young Frack" in 2009. EZJim was inducted as Frack Emeritus in 2010. DavidCPA's recent "Cool Frack" (although I as a young frack I question if an aging, white CPA that still rides bikes can be cool...sorry D, couldn't resist brotha!) and of course now...the Godfather Frack, which is fitting.

So I believe my Frack history is complete and after writing it up completely looks like a chauvinistic fraternal brotherhood of sorts....

The solution to this, if one is so inclined, is to deem one or some of the women Frackette status! Just a thought...

Still trying to get the quote thing to work. I am feeling quote challenged...

Frackette ?: Too many years litigating as a civil rights prosecutor on behalf of having women hired as police, firefighters, and other traditional male bastions make me leary of using any diminutive suffix.
If anything, Christine could designate her fellow women as Cancer Goddesses or Warrior Princesses or Caregiver Supreme.
Not to foster stereotypes, but most women don't seem to have the same need as men to give themselves medals or awards or special titles.
Oh and in rereading my post:

Brian
You are already a grey haired wonder.
I hope you can grow old enough to be an ancient wonder of the world.
