I'll be on a plane back to France on the 29th! I feel sorry for people whose birthday falls on a leap year..

We have a common friend whose birthday falls on a leap year.Just we meet in NY thanks to Jorge... It's too bad to be born in this day...

hi ladies, i know a person born on the 29th, she keeps track of her birthday 2 different ways. she mostly celebrates on the 28th and of course counts annually. and then she counts her actual birthday every leap year.

i once met a man from africa who did not know how old he is. he said 'i think i am about...' he was not born in a hospital and no records were kept. so interesting...

now i'm curious. i'm going to do a little research and see what leap year is all about and how it came into being. think it has something to do with keeping the calender 'balanced(?)'
