I hhave not been around here much lately and in truth may not be in the future. No issues but I have managed to get myself back into the real world and with a history of mental health issues and dillusions this place is not the best place for me to hang out. I still pop by a few times a day to see whats going on and to keep an eye on what is what but other than that I do not seem to have much reason to participate.

That said I turn 40 tommorow and without over exageration if it was not for some of the members of ats I would not have been here to feel old and grumble about turning 40 and I thank you for that.

Be happy in what you do and keep searching for that smoking gun or rock on mars that is not a rock but above all keep arguing and laughing and smiling in the face of adversity.

Life begins apparently tommorow so I shall start it with a blinding hangover.

I'm only about a month and a half away from it myself. It's really just another year to me. I guess it gets that way for some of us after our 25th birthday.

Well Happy Birthday and good luck to you in your new life!
I vaguely remember turning 40 LOL.
Anyway, glad to hear you are healthy and working toward happy. Life is short and the older you get, the shorter it becomes doesn't it?
Do it all, feel it all, embrace it all, and above all try to be kind.

Have a great day Non!

"At the age of forty, every man has the face that he deserves"- old proverb.
Think upon that, youngster.

Uh-oh...the memory goes first as we age?
Was it Night or Jacy???

LOL
Either way remember this
"You're not forty, you're eighteen, with twenty-two years worth of experience."-unknown

Hmm, could have been Jacey now you mention it?

The way I see it I have a hell of a lot of experience in how not to do things.

Hey!! My memory is like a steel trap!!
Who are you again?


Seriously though my friend....I cried the last night of my 39th year because I thought I was turning "officially old"...hehe...

Truth is, I peaked in my 40's. Looked my best, felt my best...had more self confidence than ever because I decided, "Hey! I'm 40! I don't have to take anybody's crap now!"

Please don't lose touch with us here, but yes...go have a life outside of the internet! Then come back and tell us how you're rocking your 40's!! Be true to yourself and don't take any crap from the youngun's!!

So today is officially your birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU!!!
*hugs and all*

I was a little glum leading up to it but now i here it alsmost feels liberating.

I have not gone I just find little to engage in here anymore what with the politics and all but always in the background if something interesting crops up.

Cheers to you hunny! (that's my coffee mug, lol)

You made it!
You actually survived 40 years as a human!! Think of everything you've been through so far, it's worth celebrating!

Ignore the political threads for a while. Come play with us in The Shed.

A lot of us there have passed the 40-year marker so we enjoy our shenanigans these days.

You're officially a grup. (grown up)
Stand tall, stand proud. Yell at the kids to get off your lawn. Mis-use your authority, hehe...

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Get on with it!! (ya ain't getting any younger, lol)
