Happy birthday to me!

birthday-cake-clipartIt’s that time again. Another year older and unfortunately not another year wiser. I still keep reliving those same mistakes again and again. I guess the old adage, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”, is true. 🙂

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but the plans for this next year are “to do me” a bit more. That might sound funny to people who know me, as I am incredibly self-centred, but I keep getting distracted from my path. There are certain things that make me happy and I’m distracted from them by all the stuff going on around me. Rather than concentrating on what I do well, I end up doing a bunch of other mediocre stuff, which makes me frustrated and it all kind-of spirals down from there.

That may sound a bit negative, but it’s not meant to be. If you can’t be honest with yourself, you can’t expect other people to be honest with you. 🙂

So that’s 47 years done. Let’s start the 48th. Here we go!



PS. Diet starts tomorrow. 🙂

Happy Birthday to oracle-base.com (sort-of)

birthday-cake-clipartToday is another anniversary, but this time it’s the website, which is 15 years old.

OK. This is a bit of a cheat because:

  • The website originally had a different name, so you could say the website with it’s current name is 13 months younger, but it’s the same site, so whatever.
  • I don’t actually know the exact day the first page went online, but I do know the date I bought the original domain name (before the rename to oracle-base.com), so I know the first page was put up about now.

Anyway, July 3rd is from now on the official birthday of the website. Makes it easy to remember, because it’s the day after my birthday.



PS. For those that are interested, the blog was 10 years old last month. I do know the exact date for that because the posts are dated and you can read the first post. 🙂
