July 10th

1886 Eruption of Tarawera volcano destroys famous pink & white calcium carbonate hot-spring terraces (North Island, New Zealand).
1890 Wyoming became the 44th state of the USA.
1965 Rolling Stones score their first #1, "I Can't Get No Satisfaction".
1985 Explosion sinks Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in Auckland harbour.
1989 Mel Blanc, the “man of a thousand voices,” including such cartoon characters as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig, died in Los Angeles.
1998 "Lethal Weapon 4" premiered, garnering $34.05 box-office bucks its opening weekend.

I can't believe I have reached another birthday! Not only that, but that my 5 week international holiday is over, and I am back at work, in the winter! My first day back at work and its my birthday! On the upside, Wendy from work decorated my whole office with streamers, glittery coloured stars (they are tiny and EVERYWHERE - the cleaners are going to go nuts!), and smiley faced balloons :)

I had lunch at my fav Thai place, where my Aunty gave me a gorgeous bouquet of roses, which alerted our waitress (and owner of the place) that it was my birthday - so she brought out a fab piece of choc cake, with icecream and cream and choc sauce all over it, with a candle! Sooo sweet :)

I'm looking forward to an early night tonight - I am whacked!!! But I've had a lovely day despite being back at work.
