Crikey O'Reilly...........

I've been honoured again, this time by Julia at A Piece of My Mind who has bestowed another Thinking Blogger Award on me! I take this as a true honour, particulary as Julia is a Writer and Film-maker. My head will be getting that big I won't get it through the blogging door.

Well, of course I graciously accept the award mainly because I love getting awards of any sort, and it gives me the chance to pass it on to another five bloggers!


Who to pass it on to is the most difficult of decisions! There are so many great blogs on my blogroll I'd like to give you all the award, but I can't, I can only choose another five, so please don't fall out with me if I don't choose you - I love you all!


Catch at A Penny For Your Thoughts is a Mother, Grandmother and also has her own Mother living with her. In her own words her house is like "Grand Central Station with my kids and grandkids in and out...plus a wide array of friends and relatives who drop in to..and I love it!" There's always something going on at Catch's place, you can be laughing one minute and crying the next but she certainly makes you think.

Judd Corizan at The Rising Blogger is busy giving out Rising Blogger Awards to others (I have one!) but I don't think he realises what a fabulous blog he is hosting! He searches through tons of blogs to find individual posts to award. His reports on the posts are fantastic and reading his blog gives you the opportunity to read blogs you may never know existed, and thereby making you think.

Gewels at Imagined Life has captured my attention with lots of her posts but two in particular really got my attention. Her post on Thursday this week entitled 'Lift Up Thy Head' is about the American Bald Eagle being removed from the endangered species list and how she saw one in her very own yard last summer. The second post which brought tears to my eyes was her post on Father's Day, paying tribute to her her husband, her father and FIL and her male friends - such a beautiful post.

Paul Champagne at The Blogway Boys writes mostly about politics, which usually goes right over my head because, not living in America, I have no idea who he's talking about, unless he mentions the President - I know him! (Who is he?). I do pop by every day though to read his posts, because they are so well written and sometimes he does little quizzes. Paul's posts always make me think, and occasionally I do comment if I know who he's talking about.

La Bellina Mammina at (the mad) Household of Indemini-Capri is a working mother of three gorgeous boys, who still finds time to blog about her life and what's going on in her part of the world. She has just done a frank online interview about herself which will tell you virtually all you need to know.

Gledwood Vol2, a blog I have only recently discovered. Gleds talks frankly about his drug addiction, but thankfully is in the process of trying to sort out rehab for himself. If you ever considered 'doing drugs' please read Gledwood's blog - I promise you it will scare the living shit out of you, and I make no apologies for my language! You may well be surprised at the obvious intellect of the person writing, for a drug addict, which makes what you will read all the more incredulous. How does an intelligent, articulate, and in his own words, 'straight' guy turn into a 'junkie' - read and find out - it will certainly make you think.


I hope you'll pop across to read them, if you don't already, they truly are Thinking Bloggers.

Gosh the blogosphere is drowning in awards these days, isn't it? Reminds me of the Woody Allen line from "Annie Hall". Someone said that the Grammy's were on TV tonight. Woody responded "They give out awards for that music? I thought only earplugs."

LOL! I've been seeing you around lately. I like your style. You're very enthusiastic and friendly. Hugs to you for that!
