Many thanks to Gary for passing me the "One Lovely Blog" award.
Gary is another expat, but in the opposite direction. Native of British Columbia, now living in England. Good luck over there, Gary. I recommend you check out his blog, and his surreal sense of humour.
In turn, I need to pass on the award to some of the many fine blogs that I know about. I'm limiting myself to five, and not putting a lot of science into this, so please don't feel put out if I miss you. Also I know this award is well-established in the blogging community, so I apologise if you've already received it. Hey! It gives you a chance to pass on to someone new if you were spoiled for choice first time around.
So, in no particular order, I declare the following Lovely Blogs:
Saloma (About Amish) - with some inspirational views on life and freedom.
David (The Bimillennial Man) - Mr Gadget, with some astute observations on the world at large. David, I know you don't care for tags and awards, but I wanted to acknowledge your blog anyway.
Jean (Discarded Darlings) - and her office full of characters giving her hell as she tries to focus on writing. But watch out for the cyborg attack weasels!
Laura Pauling - with her insightful views on writing.
Jan (Tartitude) - from the land of pith and zest.
And Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!
