So recently,  I phoned up the hospital I was born in – Mackenze, BC and requested to the records department to look up the exact time of BIRTH!  I don’t know why I waited so long to ‘just ask’ somebody but the response I got was not only a huge question answered but offered a little bit of a shock.
