    Tonight my wife bought me a bottle of champagne to kick off the birthday evening celebrations, which will continue in a nice restaurant where I shall be fussed and enjoy great food and warm company and reminisce on good times and look hopefully on what the year ahead holds.

    I have received loads of warm regards and good wishes from friends around the world, greeting cards, texts, FB messages, phone calls and visits from family. It is wonderful, and it's a Saturday, and Chelsea won.

    And if I was a Jehovah's Witness none of this would be allowed.

    Edit: not even the football as I remember robbie railing against watching the Olympics in 2012 so obviously sport is bad too.

    Edit2: oh and my wife would possibly not be here with me tonight as she needed a blood transfusion last year for a critical condition.

    If RC is any indication, the JW's are more about paying lip service to abstaining from practices which have "pagan roots" than they are about actually doing it. It's more marketing strategy for differentiating their product than anything else. Pancake Tuesday is just around the corner. If RC remains true to form, he'll once again post in advance about how his wife will "just happen" to make pancakes that day for him to consume. Why would birthdays be any different?

    Here's something from Russian history:
    According to the Primary Chronicle (a historical narrative of Kievan Rus),
    in the 10th century, Vladimir the Great decided to have his people convert
    from their traditional paganism. As the story goes, Vladimir was interested
    in Islam until a Muslim emissary informed him that Islam prohibited drinking.
    Then Vladimir decided that his people should become Christians instead.

    'Drinking is the joy of the Rus; we cannot exist without that pleasure.'
    --Vladimir the Great (explaining why he preferred to become a Christian)
