    Happy Birthday, Jeff. I'm 65, too, and one of the people you referenced when you say that they expected things to have changed by now, so they delayed education, a secure career, and are paying for it now in retirement.

    While this is not the most fun I've ever had, I still say it beats the alternative!

    Jeff you have a deceptively simple but utterly engaging style ...as one of your most eminent literary countryman, Hemingway, had....there's a nice ego stroke for your 65th birthday😀!

    Jeff, very good blog. What makes it especially good is the timing. You were 18 when the "face the facts" article came out and bam, now you're 65 and no new world. Yes, you proved them wrong 100%. You did face the facts and the facts proved them so wrong, you can laugh yourself to the bank everyday. And the Watchtower can't. They can't literally because they even shut down their own construction. They had no idea that this old system would go on this long. Not one of them did.

    By the way, I think your posts are well written too.

    Happy birthday Jeff!

    I marked it in yellow because this is a very unique birthday wish: it's my first ever :-)

    (OK I practised with wishing Simon and this forum 'happy birthday' by that was technically an anniversary ;-))
