Today is a very special day on the interweb. Can you feel it? Can you feel the excitement mounting?! It’s all because Green Onion’s blog turns one year old today! Awww, yay!!!

As I thought about his idea, the immortal words of Dr. Peter Venkman immediately came to mind, “I love this plan! I’m excited to be a part of it!” So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to THE GREEN ONION BLOG!!! All that’s left is to click here and bounce over to Green’s site where you can read my guest post celebrating all things Green Onion. The birthday celebration is underway!!
