special occasion

ONE OF OUR MOST LOYAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE MEMBERS IS TURNIG 60 TOMORROW....WHO COULD IT BE??

SHE LIVES IN CHICAGO.....SHE LOVES THE ORIENTAL...IN FACT SOME CALL HER MS ORIENTAL!!

SHE GIVES GREAT ADVICE ON FODORS, AND PROBABLY ELSEWHERE...

MAY I BE THE FIRST TO WISH HER THE MOST HAPPY OF BIRTHDAYS..

who is it you ask....?? all regular fodorites will know....she may be shy so i don't think we should use her name...she might not want anyone to know that she is 60...well almost 60....and she certainly would not want it broadcast across the world...

just think the day she was born her good friend, the King of Thailand, came to the throne and they are celebrating her birthday with a procession on the chao payra river in her honor tomorrow....heads of state and kings and queens are already in bangkok for the celebration..

LONG LIVE ------

Thank you!!!!!!!

Bill -- I am doing something totally out of character-- I'm dealing with a kitchen sink that is backing up! At the Oriental it would have been fixed in 5 minutes -- here is is, not surprisingly, not a lot of fun. Ah well, I guess that's what happens when you turn 60 --- things start to break down and back up.

Gloria, so it's YOU! A Very Happy 60th Birthday! You gave me such good advice on our trip to Thailand last year. Thanks for all that you do here at Fodors. Many more happy travels in the future!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Bob neglected to mention her frequent custom at the Cotton House and her generous lending of her name.

I do note a peculiarity in the announcement:

SHE GIVES GREAT ADVICE ON FODORS, AND PROBABLY ELSEWHERE...


Are we to infer that Bob questions whether any advice not given on Fodors by the Birthday Person has any value? The use of "Probably" clearly demonstrates a lack of firm belief in any non-Fodors advice. A sad image comes to mind.

Bob thats theraputic mud water- when that happens you are supposed to fill up the tub and take the mud bath! Sadly the Penn does not offer this feature.

May I also add my warmest birthday wishes to you!! Hope you will enjoy one heck of a celebration all year long!! Many thanks for all you do for fellow Fodorites...you in fact clinched it for our family with your China House recommendation in Bangkok "for our big splash" last December...it was a most memorable occasion on our trip!

Happy birthday and happy many more traveling days ahead!

Ummm... how can I say this... I AM 60!! My big 6-0 birthday was in November of '05. Thanks for the compliment though.... yes, I do look youngish...?! I think it's working with 6-year olds all those years. Haha (not to mention a DH whose antics have curled my hair...literally)

Gloria... hope your day is turning out better as it wears on. Plumbing problems are not fun. Have a very happy birthday.
