Nice Matters........

My lovely blogging friend Bella (the mad) Household of La Bellina Mammina) has given me this lovely award. I know you're thinking 'bloody hell not another one!" but I don't care, I love 'em!!

This is what The Nice Matters Award is given for

"This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you've been awarded please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award."

Here goes:

Queenie (Queenie's Random Ramblings) is my very best friend in all the world so of course she must be nice.

Annelisa (Words That Flow) is one of the nicest people I have met since I started blogging. She's not been around much lately as she is mourning her friend, but she'll be back I'm sure.

Smalltown RN (A place I call home) a recent discovery of mine, has a lovely blog, is a bit of an action woman and is a thoroughly nice person.

Pig in the Kitchen is a great writer and shares some of her fabulous recipes - how nice is that?

Mike (Mike's Homefront) has a great blog, writes music but most importantly is a nice family man.

Sarge Charlie is a thoroughly nice man who loves Miss Bee and is sooooo romantic about her - very important.

Gewels (Imagined Life) has some beautiful photographs on her blog as well as interesting posts. She is a true jewel, inspiring and a nice person to boot!

The award is a bit pink for the boys but I'm sure you're both 'man' enough to wear it!


And a little something to brighten your day.....

A biker was riding along a California beach when suddenly the skyclouded above his head and, in a booming voice, the Lord said,

"Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish."

The biker pulled over and said,

"Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want." The Lord said,

"Your request ismaterialistic, think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. Ican do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that would honour and glorify me."

The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally he said,

"Lord, I wish that I could understand my wife. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, and how I can make a woman truly happy."

The Lord replied,

"You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"

Akelamalu said...

Sarge you're welcome m'dear and I have to tell you Miss Bee was on my list but I checked and she has the award already so I thought I'd spread it about a bit. :)

He definitely does for looking after you so well Miss Bee x

Thank you Josie. I think the joke is true also!

GEWELS said...

Thanks for the award- That was so NICE of you.
I would love to be able to copy and paste it onto my blog (as well as Blogging Princess- just searching for my tiara to post a photo- I believe my friend Travis must have taken it- he's such a queen) But, I can't for some reason.

HAHA on the bridge joke. Even God is clueless.

Akelamalu said...

You're welcome Gewels. Have you tried right clicking on it and then on 'save as'and saving it somewhere on your PC then uploading it?

Re the joke - I guess us ladies are unfathomable eh!
