Water flowing underground
same as it ever was
Today is the fourth anniversary of starting this journal.

Is it really only three four (bogwitch spotted my dodgy maths - thanks mate) years? Sometimes it feels like a lifetime, given all that has happened during that time. We gained a new Führer Pope, Becks signed with Los Angeles Chocolate Bar Galaxy, and, in May this year, man walked on the moon I watched the sun set over Florence from the Fiesole Heights.

How to sum up?

1. I met a whole shedload of talented people, of all age groups, from across the world. I would otherwise never have known about any of them, they allowed me a glimpse of their lives, and together we achieved some remarkable things.
2. I learned a lot about a lot of .... stuff and I'm still learning.
3. I discovered I could write for pleasure, not just for work, thanks to bogwitch, spicklething, myfeetshowit, qkellie, and onetwomany
4. I laughed with my FList- a lot.
5. I cried with some of my Flist - some of the time ....

No, it's impossible to catalogue everything; I'm having enough trouble compiling my book lists.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.
- with a little help from my friends.

So, in honour of my LJ's 3rd birthday (for which not inconsiderable thanks must go to soulvamp for leading me here in the first place, and willowfae who gave me one of her codes to get me started. ), I'm using the original default icon, unveiling a new banner, hugging those on the FList who are still reading, and, as always, moving forward with MWNN

to seek out new worlds - to boldly go...

Happy Anniversary!

Thank you!

bogwitch just pointed out my faulty maths - it's 4 years = wow!
15th-Jan-2007 11:40 am (UTC)
Happy lj-versary! And I love your new background, it's so pretty!
15th-Jan-2007 12:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks, H. I wasn't sure about using another cartoon type illustration but it fits the boaty/exploration theme of the LJ. And Boggy just pointed out that it's 4 years ::headesk:: To think I once taught maths.

Happy LJversary, the banner is very pretty :)
15th-Jan-2007 12:41 pm (UTC) - Thank you.
the banner is very pretty.
Not as pretty as the one on the other LJ - and my maths is faulty - points at correction.

Happy LJ-versary. I've only just got here, but hope to be sticking around for quite some time. Lovely new banner.
15th-Jan-2007 12:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

I hope you get as much out of being here as I have done over the last 4 (points at correction) years.

As it's 2007 and your LJ was created in 2003, isn't it four years?

Happy Anniversary anyway!
15th-Jan-2007 12:39 pm (UTC)
And to think I once taught maths.

Doh! - Thanks.

The background of your journal is lovely.
Happy Anniversary , Pat ! It's been three years last December for me too.
15th-Jan-2007 12:38 pm (UTC) - Thank you!
bogwtich just pointed out my faulty maths. I started mine in 2003, so that makes it 4 years. I knew it felt like a lot longer than 3, Hee!

Happy Lj-versary. Very striking banner and background and a good sentiment for all of us to follow ...
15th-Jan-2007 12:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks K. I wanted another boaty/exploration image as that is this 4-year old (see correction to faulty maths) LJ's theme. As for the sentiment -
<------- points at sub-title Always moving forward: to seek out new worlds . . . to boldly go . . . If I knew what I was doing I'd probably be bored.

Many congrats on your 4th anniversary :) I love the banner and the quote is just right.
15th-Jan-2007 07:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks Kathy.

I had another banner ready to go, all soft focus and misty blues but it didn't fit with the 'boldly going' quote at all. It's the same quote as the old layout - full text on the left-hand margin thingy.

Happy lj Birthday!
15th-Jan-2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you, D.
15th-Jan-2007 04:44 pm (UTC)
Congratulations! *throws confetti all over LJ*
15th-Jan-2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

Have you been absent for a long time or lurking?
15th-Jan-2007 05:28 pm (UTC)
Hapy Anniversary :)

15th-Jan-2007 05:30 pm (UTC)
that's neat

pretty layout, always appreciate the shiny
15th-Jan-2007 07:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I dithered over the header banner, I had an alternative one ready to go, all soft focus and dreamy blues but it didn't fit the 'boldly going' theme.
15th-Jan-2007 06:58 pm (UTC)
Happy Anniversary!!!
15th-Jan-2007 07:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

Love the icon!

Hello to the memory of dear Mr Ash - lovely to use him as a tribute on your anniversary. The new banner looks very good but still have a soft spot for the old one.
16th-Jan-2007 08:45 am (UTC)
Ash was my first icon. Little did I think when I made it that he would go before Loony GSD - or so soon :(

The original image from the old banner is still on my info page - it's not going anywhere. I have a soft spot for it too.
