I just read this article by Rupert Murdoch and I can’t help but be inspired that someone as powerful a media mogul as Murdoch gets what’s going on! I remember my first thought when he bought My Space was that he would ruin the medium with greed – but now – I’m not quite so sure!

One of my favourite men in the world is 30 today!!! Amazing! He’s even got the prime minister of Norway on film wishing him a happy birthday! Just goes to show what a brilliant enthusiastic politician he is! A great friend that goes out of his way to make people happy and is always available for a helping hand!
I admire and love him and I’m so freakin privileged to have him as friend! And like every woman who knows him – I feel we look like the PERFECT couple! Hehe!!! Have a great birthday, darlin’! And thanks for a glorious and spectacular party!

Sorry about the personal! But this was just too important! Sorry…something funky going on with my blogger account…pictures are proving to be a difficult task!
