A Royal Patissier must have access to a wide variety of resources.  :D Although, I admit, there are times when I've wished I had an assistant to advise me on choosing the best theme for the occasion. (Bynw was easy, though.)

Mystic rhythms
Capture my thoughts
Carry them away
Nature seems to spin
A supernatural way
Mystic rhythms
Under city lights
Or a canopy of stars
We feel the powers and wonder what they are!

Here is a little Rush for your day, I am playing this song for you!

Bynw, have the happiest of birthdays!

Like a million little doorways                   For so many different directions                   Somehow we find each other
All the choices we made                         Our separate paths might have turned          Through all that masquerade
All the stages we passed through            With every door that we opened                   Somehow we found each other
All the roles we played                           Every bridge that we burned                        Somehow we have stayed
                                                                                                                             In a state of grace

I don't believe in destiny
Or the guiding hand of fate
I don't believe in forever
Or love as a mystical state
I don't believe in the stars or the planets
Or angels watching from above
But I believe there's a ghost of a chance we can find someone to love
And make it last...

Ghost Of A Chance by Rush

A gift of Rush for your Birthday.
Happy Birthday  Bynw!

Hello Bynw,
Birthday day! Make it a wonderful, and a happy one!
I've heard that your Avatar stands for the phoenix. (love the cake DR.) I am curious about the name, Bynw?
See you in the forum's.
Title: Re: Happy Birthday, Bynw!
Post by: revanne on March 09, 2018, 02:22:28 pm
I have always assumed Bynw is of Welsh derivation.

You would think from the spelling that Bynw is a Welsh name, but no, it's transliterated Egyptian for "phoenix."  You'll see it spelled other ways because transliteration works like that.  It's pronounced BEN (like, the nickname for Benjamin)-new (the opposite of "old"), with the emphasis on the first syllable.  (I only know because I asked him once.)

What is Bynw ...

In Egypt the phoenix is known as Bennu or Bynw.
It is an emblem of the sun god and is associated
with Osiris, the ruler of the underworld. Osiris,
who himself was resurrected, gave the Bennu the
secrets of eternal life. In Egypt, the Bennu was
symbolic of other cycles such as those of the
sun's rising and setting and the Nile's beneficial
annual floods.


Every 500 years, the Bennu flew to the Sun Temple
in Heliopolis where the priests were waiting to
assist it. The bird then built a large funeral
pyre of spices, climbed on top, and allowed the
sun's rays to consume it. From the ashes,
a worm was born which grew into an adult Bennu
by the end of the day.


THE PHOENIX
The Bennu, the sacred bird, is
the quintessence of rebirth...
