  2. Thank you for the honor of bestowing this award upon me... My blog went award free about a month ago. But I truly do appreciate this! You're such a sweetie!

    The Blue Ridge Gal

  3. Wow! thanks Minka, I'm truly honored.

  4. You got what it takes to get that award because i knew you are humble and show great attitude/gratitude. Share it with your family, colleagues and relatives.

    Well done again and keep up the good work.

    Take care and may god bless you.. :)

  5. Wow, thank you Minka! This is my very first bloggin award, I'll treasure it always :)

    I'd also like to thank the Silverfish for convincing me to start blogging in the first place. And the site where I used to blog, for all it's screw ups and foibles (sp?) urging me to move to a better location. Last but not least, I'd like to thank my readers for making it possible for me to continue blogging. It certainly is nice to know...

    ...oops, sorry, this isn't the Juno's, where's my head at? :D

  10. Thank you very much for the award. I will get to posting it as soon as I can. I have been short on time lately.

  11. As you've probably noticed, I have posted the award to my blog. My problem lies in attempting to decide who my 10 award receivers are going to be. I think I've decided on 6 of them, but that could I'm very wishy-washy with such things, but it shall get done, as soon as I can figure out to whom it shall be awarded :)

    Again, thank you ever so much for the award!
