Today is a both sweet and sour. I’ve just finished celebrating my birthday, which was really good. But today was the state funeral for Sir Edmund Hillary, which was sad. Today, I talk about both.

First I talk about Sir Ed’s funeral, and explain a little bit about how much he meant to New Zealanders. He was an extraordinary man, and we’ll probably never again see anyone like him.

Then it’s on to a lighter topic—my birthday! What did Nigel get me, and what did I think about it? How did we celebrate? It’s different from how I celebrated in Illinois.

A few comments, another bald plea for reviews on iTunes, and that’s it for this Tuesday edition.
