    5th Anniversary

    Where do the days go? Buggered if I know. One moment you were reading about vanishing socks and the next five years have ebbed away and your best mates are made of pixels. Still, it's all been quite pleasant and now you have another shiny thing.

    20th Anniversary

    Twenty years have passed us by... Ah, the apple trees, Blossoms in the breeze, That we walked among. Lying in the hay, Games we used to play, While the rounds were sung. Only yesterday--when the world was young.
