The 2006 Tag

My dear friends, here is a tag for you all to tell us what were the outstanding things you remember from the year 2006.

OK, I'll start with my list and look forward to reading all of yours:

  1. My son Christopher got married to Mari-Colette, who is just a wonderful and beautiful person.
  2. Jan and I took a holiday to Denmark to visit my good friend Doug and his fiancee Karen in Copenhagen and we then visited the beautiful Frisian Island of Baltrum, where I used to spend many a happy holiday when I was a boy.
  3. My Mum had a pacemaker fitted and is thankfully doing fine now.
  4. The Electronic Firefly blog was created, resulting in many beautiful blogging friends.
  5. England crashed out of the Football World Cup do to total incompetence of its manager, Sven-Goran Eriksson.
  6. Charles Roberts kills three girls and critically wounds eight at an Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, Pa.
  7. Stingray's barb kills Steve Irwin.
  8. Saddam Hussain is sentenced to death by a court in Bagdad.
  9. Britain pays off last installment for World War II debts ($83.25m to the US and $22.7m to Canada) which it borrowed in 1950 for rebuilding work after the war.
  10. Gerald Ford and James Brown die amongst others.

Great stuff!

I'm planning to do something similar to this post, celebrating 2006.

As for the photo of me - I've been burned in the past and am not prepared to lose my anonymity just yet!

I love your list! All I can remember is what I had for breakfast. My memory ain't what it used to be.

Oy -- having to recap 2006 in just a few words. Actually, it's been a pretty uneventful year for my family, for which I am grateful since 2005 was horrendous.

I didn't know you had a son, and a grown one at that! See what a recap will do for keeping your friends informed?

Great way of counting one's blessings, huh?

A girl like me -
I understand what you mean about being burned. In your own time!

Jenny - I can never remember names, otherwise I'm not too bad!

It's the little things -
Yeah!! Interesting or what?!!

Aisby -
Yes, you should! I will look out for it!

Vicki -
It is harder than you think!

Leann -
A blessing list, huh?? No good for me as it would be endless!!

Desert Songbird -
I have 2 grown up sons and a grown up daughter from my wife's first marriage (yes, I inherited a fully-fletched family at the age of 31) and we have a now 19 year old daughter (Victoria).
