For the most part, I think that the blog awards we pass around are silly but, politeness compels accepting. And there is another thing. When you have huge respect for those that nominated you it sheds an entirely different light on it.
The point of this diatribe is that I just got nominated twice, for two awards. Both nominators are extraordinary bloggers themselves. They carry the highest recommendations from me. They are The Catholic Nomad and All Along the Watchtower.
Now I am required to tell you 7 things about myself.
- I’m Lutheran
- Although I don’t pull punches, I try not to hurt feelings
- I’m divorced (and not enthused about it)
- I’m a decent cook
- For all my love of the military, my only service was two years of ROTC. I guess it took.
- Although I’m a Purdue Alumni, I didn’t graduate
- I like college football far more than pro. Boiler UP
And so to my nominations:
Public Catholic: The blog home of an incredible Oklahoma Legislator who will tell you more than you really want to know about our political process.
Montana Corruption: An exceptionally brave blogger in Montana waging what has to be a lonely war against corruption, and crony capitalism, in the justice system.
Hump Day Report: My favorite Hawaiian Buckeye runs a superb political compendium.
Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast: A fascinating site. watch as Brett and Michelle convert Belle Grove Plantation, which is the birthplace of James Madison, into a stunning bed and breakfast. History and wonderful photography, too.
All are very worthy of your attention.
