Happy Birthday Ryan!


Today my daughter Ryan celebrates one of those milestone birthdays - so here is a big Happy Birthday wish to her!  Love you and wish I could be there to help you celebrate.  

Her sister Reagan is flying from San Diego, where she is doing an internship, to Honolulu to help Ryan celebrate her big day.  Before Mom's mishap I too was thinking about making a surprise visit to also help her celebrate.  (In case you were wondering what Ryan is posing next to above, here is my pose in front of the famous Duke Kahanamoku statue in Waikiki.)

When it comes to making plans however, I noted the other day how Man Plans and God Laughs.  It got me wondering about the origins of that saying.  Turns out it stems from a Yiddish proverb.  Also, I learned that it was the title of an album by rap group Public Enemy (click here)

The title song is your typical rap crap that is tough to listen to for more than a few seconds.  However, there is also this cut off that album that's actually pretty good for a rap song.
