My brother turns 40 today. Happy birthday, you old coot! Don't break a hip while celebrating.
To help convince him to move somewhere where he doesn't have to tend a woodstove for 9 out of 12 months (and spend 6 months getting wood for said stove), here's some photographic nudging:

That thing on my face is a "smile". And I'm missing a chin already. Only 8 or 9 more to go, but I'm glad to be rid of one. Oh, and, no, that's not photoshop trickery. They're straight from my licenses. I've gotten a wee bit of color instead of my usual luminous geeky paleness.
Hint hint, family and friends, hint hint.
