seven swans a swimming

The end of the noughties.

What do we call the decade 2010-2019?

Please NOT teenies, tweenies, teens, or tweens; those words are already in high use. There is no accepted name. Please start calling the decade “the tens” and it might catch on. 

Meanwhile, watch out for cameras in 2010


  1. I like "the tens".

    Thanks for the warning - I'll be watching out ;)

  2. Or the "tennies" "for short" if we want an aussie beer-related name?

  3. Thank you for your on-going encouragement during 2009, speedygeoff.

    I love your blog & read it regularly...comment hardly at all!

    I hope you have a really fast & speedy 2010!

    Funny thing : the verification code for your blog was "agless"! The addition of the missing "e" might well describe both of us!
