Leeuwenhoek had stolen and peeped into the fantastic sub-visible world of little things, creatures that had lived, had bred, had battled, had died, completely hidden from and unknown to all men from the beginning of time. Beasts these were of a kind that ravaged and annihilated whole races of men ten million times larger than they were themselves. Beings these were, more terrible than fire-spitting dragons or hydra-headed monsters. They were silent assassins that murdered babies in warm cradles and kings in sheltered places. It was this invisible, insignificant, but implacable-and sometimes friendly- world Leeuwenhoek had looked into for the first time of all men of all countries. ~Microbe Hunters

Card updates

Missed some birthdays and an anniversary...been busy with not having to procrastinate haha!

Dec 27th- Happy Birthday Sascha!!
(current status)
(Celebrating your Birthday and Christmas)
Dec 28th- Happy Birthday Andrew!!
                         We went out for his birthday and were reunited with some of our old friends we havent seen for 2 years, which was nice. Super rushed card though...
(Amazing to think you were once a tiny helpless baby)
(Now youre a giant helpless man)
Dec 29th- Happy 21st Annivesary Mommy and Daddy!!!
(In the beginning...You would come home from work, grab your slippers and relax. Later, you might surprise each other with a nice dinner. For your anniversary, you would look forward to the unexpected gift, even if it was another fondue set...
10 years later...You would come home from work and have your child labour team fetch your slippers for you, then sit around with your young family. Then the children would start whining, and no surprise, its dinner time. For every occasion, you would buy your own presents as the kids were not old enough to get you something other than a yogurt cup pen holder...
Now...You come home from work, and he dog has eaten your slippers and the only time to relax is on the toilet (which is why you take so long). Then you go to work around the house, and it is a surprise if you make a family dinner. People have stopped buying you gifts as you just return them, or they sit in the crawlspace for years...)
(Well, to get away from it all, hopefully these will help. You can buy a new pair of slippers, and you can eat out all you want. You will have everything you want, and you can start buying me gifts!) (I got them a Heart and Stroke Lottary Calendar)
Dec 31st- Happy 19th Birthday Baby Vinnyyy!!
                             Snowboarding with 'the guys'... yup never going out with just 8 guys again, even if I love yah all...  only got the outside of this super rushed card.

(Good luck, Vince)
Jan 1st- Happy Birthday L'anana!!!
(Happy Birthday)
(They say when you lose one thing you gain another. So as you say good-bye to another year, you look forward to sponge baths, diapers and re-learning my name every day... Welcome to the "really old" age)
