    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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?

    Hugs

    No, it didn't just the straight statistics... I'd be interested in knowing why, though - it's fascinating.

    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.
