Here is your daily reminder that you are old and nothing good lasts forever.

Remember Danny Wood? New Kids on the Block, 00’s solo career and reality show star?

Yeah, he turned 45 today. The Boston-native is still active though, running in this year’s Boston Marathon and touring with a reunited New Kids on the Block this year.

If that wasn’t enough of a reality check: it’s been over 25 years since “You Got It (The Right Stuff)’’ hit the streets and the commonwealth declared April 24, 1989 “New Kids on the Block Day.’’
