Swamp Gas Status Update

Today is my record-breaking 50th post in a row (ok, 49 in a row was the real record breaker) and I thought I would take a moment to let you know what's coming up on the site.  I have thought about my next countdown (there are only three weeks left on this one) and finally made a decision.  That will be outlined below.  There are some big things coming up for me and in the geek community.  I hope to keep up on all of it.

The Trivial Tuesday answer is, the Apollo command module callsign was Columbia.  Laura B. got it correct, so congratulations to her.  I already have a good trivia question for this coming week.

My next countdown will be my favorite inventions and discoveries of all-time.  This may end up having some similarities to the Science Minds Countdown, but it should be interesting to say the least.  If you have any suggestions for countdowns, or you just want me to strain my brain, let me know.  I like the idea of interactivity when it comes to the blogging world.

Sunday should be, if I don't double post today or tomorrow, be the 300th post on Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections.  Next month will be the one year anniversary of this blog and I would love to figure out how to get 365 posts between now and then, but I doubt it will happen.  I did make 68 posts in these past 50 days, so I think that says a lot for the topic.

Next week, Monday to be exact, I will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of one of the greatest moments in history.  July 20, 1969, of course, was the day that Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin became the first human beings to step onto an extraterrestrial body.  I will, of course, be posting my usual garden post on Monday, but I will also have a post on the moon landing.

So that's what coming up in the future.  Trust me, I'm just getting started and I'm enjoying what I'm doing.  Remember, feel free to e-mail with suggestions, compliments, insults, idle threats or tech questions.  I enjoy hearing from people and helping them whenever I can.  Have a good weekend.
