Next week I'll be hosting Grand Rounds here at DiabetesMine. That's the weekly roundup of happenings in the medical and health blogosphere, now organized by Dr. Val and team over at GetBetterHealth.

As it happens, next Tuesday April 21 is my birthday (how did I get hoodwinked into this gr-invitetiming?)  So the theme was obvious: I'm favoring any and all posts having to do with birthdays and special occasions -- or anything that smacks of serendipity, perks, or gifts related to the work you all do.
