I thought I could avoid (my) birthday events, but alas, that was not possible. 

As I've never been a "summer contester," I was surprised at the up,
down and non-existent (10m) the bands were. 

While it was not necessarily fun, it was good to know that I haven't lost all
of my enthusiasm and abilities (slight as they are) over the past couple of
years of less operating time than I would have liked. 

One funny note. Others have mentioned that stations calling out their name and
QTH makes the contest more intimate and fun. I found it somewhat disquieting, 
as it seemed to take the need to copy less important...a bit like the autofill
function. In my case, way too many people "reminded" me that I was in
DC, which while true, was irrelevant, as DC counts as Maryland (which I accept
gave as my QTH) and N1MM logger will not accept DC in the "state"
