On your...

Thank you for your support all this while and may many more years be added to your Dhammadutaship and the Path :anjali:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

We normally celebrate my birthday on Christmas since the office at our business is closed (actual date is Dec. 26 at 1 am). We needed a new car in our household since we have a new driver soon with our daughter learning to drive, so since this was the big 5-O, we decided to get a yellow lotus with a customized license plate:

We share the same birthday, and the same date. I knew eventually there would be something we have in common.
