I think it's nice that you wish APOD a happy B-day; but i think your post belongs in the café! JMHO! So you are 12 yrs old! Nice that you take an interest in APOD! Keep posting and replying! 8-)

Our Galaxy's Central Molecular Zone

My friends and I were really into APOD two years ago, but after a while, they started to lose interest, and I was the only one among my friends who still looked at the site; I still am. We used to do a thing where we would look at the calendar page and find the pictures posted on our birthdays, to the year, and then show them to each other. As I'm sure you could imagine, this got boring very quickly, but I can still associate each of my friends with their respective astronomy picture. Mine is the one in the title of this post: Our Galaxy's Central Molecular Zone, 2008 November 10.
