The Colonel's Eagle: 1st Anniversary

Indeed it is folks, on this day in 2005, I created this blog with this post. Admittedly it's not awe-inspiring, but one has to start somewhere yes?

Who would have thought that people like Lt.Col. Oliver North, Paris Hilton, William Hootkins and Iron Man would come together in one place let alone a place of my creation?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many contributors to the success of "The Colonel's Eagle" over the past year, I doubt if I would have continued on for this long or posted as much as I did if you lot had no interest in me or what I have to say. I especially thank the more active commentators who contribute their opinion, knowledge or generally heckle to keep me on my toes- Sith Apologist, Civilian Overseer, Cubaboy, Mark, Master Guns, Aaron, PF, Vaughan, Former Grunt, D K eeshan, Pint Of, Interloper Prime, Seeker of Wisdom and No Angel.

Are you ready for another year?

seeker of wisdom said...

AW, shucks, colonel. And here was me thinking I wasn't welcome.
Now you got me all a shiver. I'm still seeking, and looking forward to your next year.
Happy birthday, Colonel.

Wait are you telling me that you would have ceased this madness if we just hadn't bothered putting in our comments, WHAT HAVE WE DONE ? WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!?!?!!?(Falls to knees in a shatner like pose of despair)

d k eeshan said...

Now wait vaughan, is that a true shatner pose of despair or a comic book guys knock off?

Cubaboy said...

Well done Ciaran, only on the internet can disaffected lunatics like us have a voice.

Interloper Prime said...

Indeed a wonderful achievement - and I thank the Rear Admir......Colonel for his Thanks. I only wish the long forgotten opus that was Out Of Time was as successful.

vaughan said...

Why its a true shatner pose of despair ( With just a hint of TJ Hookers anger and pain in it.)

Former Grunt said...

*Salutes*

Glad to be here sir!

Master Guns said...

This will be my year Colonel. My year of victory!

Aaron said...

It's the Podcast that keeps me comin back, nothin better for keeping you alert and awake in work than the Colonel shoutin in your ear.

sith apologist said...

aaron - that means the podcast is almost exactly like working with the Colonel!
Ah, the way he used to shout at people playing solitaire at work...

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

That was a high-stress situation. I apologised for making the guy soil himself but seriously, there's no excuse for playing card games while you're supposed to be working.

PF said...

Wow, I feel quite proud to have made it in to the birthday honours list, especially as I used to be the poster previously known as 'Ricky Gervais'.
I'll keep checking in during your 2nd year, it uses up at least 5 minutes a week!
