    Hey San,

    Interesting, I'm a November baby and a lot of the BP folks I know are November babies too. Do they say why?

    I'm a October baby. Guess my parents were having a lot of fun that cold February. He he. My sister is a May baby though and she's just as crazy as I am, even though she won't admit it.
