Which Mel, Taylor or Lindauer?

Either way, happy birthday!

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words and good wishes.

I got a special birthday present earlier today when I was informed that I was reelected to another four-year term on my present City Council seat.

Life is good! :D

Dear Mel:

No one contributes more to the Bogleheads (forums, chapters, annual conferences, books, John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy, etc.),

Happy Birthday, Mel!!! We love you.
