Congratulations and Happy belated birthday!
I have only had my greenhouse for one season but picking tomatoes into late December is a wonderful thing!
Here are some links that contain some good info.

I wonder if it's like mine...

When we were home this time, a trip to Lowe's was in order. I went poking around in Gardening while hubby did his thing in the rest of the store. As I was pricing greenhouses, one of the salespeople walked up and offered me a deal on a 6w x 7h x 8d no tools needed simply because the box was faded and damp. Regular 199.99 for 100 even. I said SOLD! I put it together all by myself in the garage cuz it was raining outside. It took 4 of us to move it to its new home. The first night, it blew over. Stakes were not included. It was still empty then, though. No damage was incurred. Promptly went down to the local Alco and bought bunches of stakes. Here are pics as it was when we had to go back on the road:







I couldn't believe how warm it got inside, especially with nothing but grass beneath. Hubby wants to build a floor for it to help with the anchoring problem. It is really windy where we live!

Have you considered throwing a light weight knitted 1"or 2 " mesh bird net over the green house and using that as well to help with the anchoring against the wind problem by threading a 100 foot or more cheap nylon rope through the net a few inches in from the edges and making guy rope loops with it.
