My blog friends, Sonel http://sonelscorner.wordpress.com/ and Tandy http://tandysinclair.com/ have bestowed upon me, the “Awesome blog content” award on Word Press. Thanks so much to you both for the wonderful compliment.
As with most awards, there is the dreaded acceptance speech involved, and this one requires that I share a few things with you about myself, using all the letters of the alphabet in turn. I will do my best to be brief, but unlike Tandy, who did marvellous one word answers, mine may be a bit longer.

Well that was quite time-consuming. One really has to work hard for these awards. I’m not sure who amongst you has already received one, but I would like to nominate Newsferret and Colonialist for the “Awesome Blog Content” award.
Sonel also gave me the “Genuine Blogger” award.
I would like to pass this forward to Jaycee68, Hope the Happy Hugger, View from the side, and Twoilps2. This one fortunately has no strings attached, so relax and enjoy. You are entitled to pass the award on to any blogger of your choice.
Hope you’re all having a great weekend.
