Hey Happy Birthday!  You look fantastic.  I hope that you have a good time.  I love the desert and Palm Springs.  The last time I was there was in 99 with my partner.  We found some great deals at Suzanne Somers' neighbor's garage sale (maybe neighbor was a liberal use of the term).  I hope that you have a great birthday!

Have a great birthday!  And from your picture, you definitely look a lot younger than 60.  Truly.

I agree with toykoDecadence: it's good to see another LTS enjoying life.  I was recently diagnosed and I'm still working hard to convince myself that I can live as long as I would have if I wasn't HIV positive.  Thanks for the optimism  ;)
