My friends Suzanne & Toni have nominated us at A Blip on the Radar for the Thinking Blogger award. I am honored - and according to The Rules, I now need to nominate five more bloggers whose blog gives me pause (or paws, in some cases)

I nominate:

GTR at Raising Frolic I enjoy her point of view on things.

Lavender Sheep's Fiber Garden - It makes me think about what is possible and I love looking at all the cool things that she makes with fiber.

Clare at Three Beautiful Things - Everyone should look for at least three beautiful things in their life every day!

My friends Kathy and Michelle They both write great stories about life and families - I look forward each day to seeing what they have to say (and they help keep me sane)!

I know that's five already, but I want to include Tammy at Musings from Fairlight Farms - her stories of farm life are sometimes funny and sometimes sad - but they give a very honest view of farming and doing it on your own!

The participation rules are simple:
1. If you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link back to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

AND - BIG TA DA, as you can see, I have finally figured out (thanks to Skeezix's Cat Blog Help Center) how to do imbeded links! Thank you to Skeezix & all those techie cats for solving this little mystery of life for me.

Bigger TA DA - This week marks one year of blogging - I started Sunday May 7, 2006 after receiving a cancer diagnosis - and a year later, life goes on, cancer free - it was, as my sister hoped, just "A Blip on the Radar". Thanks for coming along for the ride - hope you'll stay for a while.

Hey! Thanks for the Kudos! :) Now I'll have to think of some wise-ass entry on the blog. (LOL) That means I won't take those meds so I have a clear head and will remember what I write. ;-)

Thanks so much for the confidence in me, Tina. I sure appreciate it and it brightened my snowy day!

Wow! Congratulations! I have to admit, you were a top contender when I had to make these same nominations. I like your blog because of your frank but positive outlook on life.
