Astrology is for kooks....I think.....

I've never given much credence to the zodiac, or the whole astrology gig, but this month has me wondering. The number of April birthdays for people in my circle, or at least indirectly involved in my circle, is certainly noteworthy.

Flash is, of course, an April Fool's baby. Mrs. Worm falls on the 4th, with me 10 days later. I even had a girlfriend in high school who celebrated her's 4 days after mine. My ex-stepfather's was the 16th. Now I find out that the infamous Juancho has the diamond for a birthstone. I've avoided Big Johnny's site,, of late(He spilled the beans on who won Paris - Roubaix before it aired on Versus!!), but when I went back, I saw he had just passed his 38th milestone as well. And most recently, Derwood and Marcus' wife, Cortney, shared the same birthday, the 22nd!
Now like I said, I never cared if you were a Leo with a rising Rat sign, pulled to the lower case by a full moon tide, but I am at least a little curious who else out there has an April birthday.

I, too, have a lot of friends whose birthdays are in April. But I think a reasonable explanation is that it's sort of biologically "right" for babies to be born in the spring.
People do get to messin' around in the summer, don't they?

We're only animals I guess.

Ms Moon - I've always heard of that seasonal phenomenom up north, where people are snowed in all winter, with nothing better to do than procreate. Perhaps here we hole up in the AC all summer.

FL - That's damn funny!! HWB and I do have wives share the same name!

Also, I found out from a very hurt Paulie, that I overlooked his birthday on the 25th. And that guy is O.G., Revolutions crew!! Sorry, Paul.

Me too -- the 16th. It's a lousy month for a BD in Minnesota...drab, gray, and today it's snowing.

You are right - three of my close riding buddies are born in April! Maybe people born in April are more tolerant to pain or just naturally gifted cyclists ...?

Wondering how many pro riders are born in April?
