The Versatile Blogger Award!

The generous and fantastic Miss Betty M has kindly bestowed a
Versatile Blogger award on me.

The really amazing part is that someone who has over 600
followers, and probably follows hundreds as well not only takes
the time to READ my blog, but actually sends an award.

The rules for "The Versatile Blogger" award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.

Thank you, Betty, I don't know how you do it!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

1. My favorite time of the week is late Friday night
2. My LEAST favorite time of the week is early Monday morning
3. I could happily subsist on a diet of cheese, bread, and wine
4. Eggs prepared in all ways are my very favorite food
5. I love sleeping...I always have cool dreams, and I
6. My favorite type of vacation includes hot sun, blue ocean,
white sand, and beer
7. I often thank God that I was born in THIS country, in THIS
period of time in history.

3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers
recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!

I'll have to be honest...I don't follow a lot of blogs, mostly
because I am fairly new to this, and also because I want to
be able to keep up with my favorite blogs very regularly...
my time is pretty limited, so I don't normally just list
a ton of people that I don't have any intention of reading

But here are a few of my newest favorite people:

Ashley over at
Beyond Passing Time

My buddy Jimmy and his gang at
Jimmy's Opinion

Dr. Susie Q, dentist:
Life According to Dr. Susie Q

Katherine, who is a young and very talented photographer:
Those Blissful Moments

4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know
about the award.

Thanks, and Peace be with you!


  1. Hey Joe,

    Hot Sun, Blue Ocean, White Sand, and Beer sounds pretty darn good, now if we can throw a mountain view on top would work too.

    Thank You Joe I am honored to be included in the list above, I do appreciate your friendship here and enjoy reading your blog.

  2. Jimmy, you live the kind of life I aspire to be living someday.

  3. Oh, I could definitely be on a diet that consisted of nothing but cheese, and bread and wine :) And sun, ocean, sand & beer...that's amazing too!

  4. Why is early Sunday Morning your least favorite time? Huh? Huh? Inquiring Betty wants to know.

    Congrats on your awards!

  5. Hi Joe...first I want to say a big THANK YOU!!! for the award. I am new to this too and it is so nice to connect with people who share a similar view of the world. I relate to your list of seven things...especially two of them. I, like you, absolutely love late Friday night. It is my very favorite time of the whole week because I know I have two completely free days ahead...this is heaven for me. Second, I love sleeping and I also remember my dreams which though different than yours are totally cool as well. Looking forward to reading much more of what you have to say!!!

  6. Wow, Betty, thanks for catching that! I meant to say that early MONDAY was my worst time! I guess I need an editor, but I can't pay anything...

  7. Congrats Joe, you deserve it!! And we are totally alike on numbers 3 and 5!:P

  8. You do deserve more awards!
    Thank you for your kind words.

  9. This was so generous of you! Thanks, Joe!!! And congratulations!!! May your readership grow and grow...
