Happy 20th anniversary of your 30th Birthday
Before man landed on the moon in 1969, before the 1964 New York World's Fair and after Disneyland opened in California in 1955, an event took place in Virginia.Nancy Walker Byrd and Frederick Byrd, Sr gave birth to Michael Clay Byrd on June 6, 1962. He would be younger brother to Frederick E Byrd, Jr and grandchild to Mary (Gaga) Walker and Clayton Walker, and Grace and Jethro Byrd.
For the first 40 years, Michael lived in Virginia and North Carolina. For the last ten years he has lived in West Hollywood, California. When you live to far from the East Coast, your family is compromised of friends. Michael has had the good fortune of having wonderful, compassionate/loving and generous friends. He is gregarious and hilarious. His laugh can be infectious
He has a pleasurable job with a great boss. He drives a new 2012 vehicle and owns a condo in West Hollywood . Not many people can say they could even walk to work, but he can. ( Rick and I would have to walk over water or the 59th Street Bridge to get to work)
He is loved by so many, especially me - his brother-in-law for more than 10 years. He has been there for Rick and I when he didn't have the time, or in all of America's people- the extra money. I have been trying to find him a partner for the last 8 years. He is healthier due to Longevity Nutritionals (www.longevitynutritionals.com ) and Kaiser in Los Angeles.

On this half-a-century mark, I would say this:
"One Cannot Help being old, but one can resist being aged." and also
"There are three things that grow more precious with age: old wood to burn ( only if were colder in California), old books to read ( do you have any?) and old friends and family to enjoy ( you have both of these)
Health , serenity and happiness on your day. You are in our thoughts.
As men age, we must worry about our prostate gland. There are foods to enhance the prostate gland health, as well as your overall health. The longer, men live, the gland will enlarge, urine will begin to slow down , and there is chance of developing prostate cancer. Your diet to help your gland should be of steamed vegetables and moderate protein ( not necessarily animal protein )
Freshly squeezed lemon or lime in warm ( not cold) water should be your daily drink. Alcohol, sugar and caffeine can aggravate the prostate.
As I am over 50, there are two additions to my diet which include pumpkin seeds and daily cucumbers. Today I had an expensive Cucumber drink from Organic Avenue. For less than 6 oz I paid $10.00. I could have juiced it at home.
The three supplements I made sure my daily multi vitamin had when I became 50 years old. These are calcium/magnesium ( total dose 600mg combined) , Vitamin E ( at least 400 IU daily) and zinc ( 20-50mg) Since my multi did not have that much zinc, I had to add an extra zinc capsule.
I would also read about using the herb, saw palmetto as a preventative measure for your prostate
