A Year Older HNT

I turn 54 on Friday.
What's happened since my last birthday?
The Deepwater Horizon oil well exploded in Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 people, and spewing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf for weeks.

Spain wins the World Cup.

Researchers trap 38 antihydrogen atoms for 1/6 of a second, marking the first time humans have trapped antimatter.

Gary Coleman died.

General upscaling of unrest in Middle East.

Phain's apartment burned to the ground.

My "neighborhood" McDonald's was torn down. Rebuilt and open within 2 months.

Thirty-three Chilean miners rescued after 69 days trapped underground.

My BIL Ray died.

Joined a new band.

The old band had its second gig in 3 years.

My car died.

Bought a new car.

Saw lots of old faces at my 35-year HS reunion.

Shattered the touchscreen on my Droid.

My diabetes stayed pretty much in check.

Moose stayed with me for a few days (forcing me to powerclean my apartment).

Met up with fellow bloggers in NY, as well as meeting two here at home, and driving to Missoula to meet Her Gucciness!

The OsShirt headed across the big pond.

MTV announces plans for new episodes of "Beavis and Butt-head"!

My dad died.

The Griz broke my heart, both by losing to the Bobkittens, and by not making the playoffs for the first time in almost two decades.

The Fighting Saints won their 6th NAIA National Championship in 10 years.

Bought new 42" HDTV.

Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disasters all strike Japan. Godzilla was nowhere to be found.

Celebrated 6 years of blogging.

Bought new 13" MacBook Pro.
Looking at this picture, I can tell that I've aged in the past year. I wonder what the next 12 months have in store for me...

"You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too." ~Anais Nin

Today's mystery guest just released an eBook about her open marriage. This week marks the end of her participation in HNT. She bids you all a sweet and sexie adieu.

She'll be revealed Thursday afternoon, so you can stop by her place and buy her book (15% cheaper than Amazon!). Of course, you could go to that right now if you know already!
Of course, this week's MG is Sexie Sadie! Click on the link, and buy her ebook. Not available on Amazon yet, and 15% cheaper than it will be when it is! We're gonna miss her around here...

We continue to get great submissions for "...the Other HNT". Go see what your fellow HNTers are up to, and leave them some comment lovin'! Quite NSFW this week.
The latest adventure of the OsShirt was posted earlier this week. Go check up on the luckiest shirt on earth!
Opera update -- As anticipated, the amount of work needing to be accomplished increases as the amount of time to do it in decreases. Stress levels aren't on overload yet, and some of the production stuff is actually coming together quite nicely. Of course, if money weren't a concern, things would fall into place much more easily. It's the final little pieces that need to come together that are a bit of a concern. But we're not terribly worried...
In case anyone missed it at the top...Friday is my birthday! And I have a date!
