What is the most memorable/interesting thing that happened to you this year?

Or it was just another year?

Moved to a warehouse thats almost 10 times larger than what I had before. I thought I wouldnt move from the last warehouse for at least 3 years (this warehouse was 5 times larger than my other warehouse). I ran short of space within the first 6 months.

I hear you KF! Definately a life philosophy!

jpman, congrats!

For me, I'm now living with my girlfriend, and my business is entering it's 3rd year, with turnover projected at 5x last year!

Oh, and I found the WebmasterWorld community!

> interesting

I found out I refered the dictionary for the meaning of the word 'fear' whenever I came across it while reading in the year 2007, more frequently than the years before.

Month wise, December has been the worst. :)

I became a book editor/publisher. The first is barely finished before the next has knocked at my door.

I'd have to agree with KF as well..only worrying about things in my control has really reduced my stress.

Like when I was bilked out of a total of 55k in commissions from two separate occasions (Merchant non-payment issues..and theft of leads)... I was upset at first, sure, did what I could, but then put it to rest.

Also, we had another baby girl this year...big event! :)

Two weddings (my sons both got married) and breast cancer.
I think the two happy events cancelled out the bad one. Next year has to be better, healthwise.

And here's me thinking you did something to do with the internet?

I found out the mean of 'Scape Goat'. No really. Apparently villagers used to burden a goat with their sins, and set it free in the countryside, hence, an escaped goat. They belived this cleansed their village.

Hmmm, wonder if I could make a 'scape web server'?

I went on a decent holiday for the first time in years. All hell broke loose while I was away, and I vowed never to go again.

Used to, might again. I would be promoting this project on the web, but the boss has her own ideas, and I can't make any sense of that.. oh well, time to move on :)

Absolutely, Label Lady. 2008 will be great with that kind of positive attitude. Thanks for sharing. Everyone wishes you well.

Being told I had a genetic illness which in all probability had a 30% chance of killing me, then being told an 2 hours later they had made a terrible error and I was in the clear.

Puts things in perspective.
