Rhondalue, thank you for the nomination of PracticallyJoe. After a short consideration I whole heartedly agree. Without any other nominations I was forced to pick four more out of a pool of many definitely worthy blogs.
And the winners are: (drum roll please)
1. PracticallyWisdom, Check Joe out, he's great.
2. ScarryMommie, thanks for the comment. (warning: Side bar cursing...but is a child quote that serves as a great reminder that we are mentors to our children and other children who may look to us as an example)
3. I had someone picked in this spot but turns out they already had the award. My brain is too fried to have to sort out a new winner, sorry folks.(do people really still say folks?)
4.LifeHappens, because it does, and I have a soft spot for 80's posts.
5.VeggieMom, thanks for the comment
Okay, that was harder than I thought it would be, so many more of you are as equally deserving. Make sure and visit these blogs and enjoy them yourself.
SO, I wanted to see what everyone is doing this weekend. In the U.S.A., where I tend to get most of my comments, it is going to be a three day weekend. Labor day is on Monday and most people do not have work or school. Of course the police, fire, and military do not take the time off. But I digress.
Tell me what you guys are planning for this weekend. Or what your not planning. And one final note: Why do they call it "labor" day when the majority of you do not labor? Just wondering
So, if you want a laugh, call650-388-1117. Then text the number to your friends and tell them to call you at that number asap. (stolen shamelessly from JillJillboBill)
So, I guess I AM gushing and totally letting it go to my head. Sorry, but It's not like I have that many opportunities to prop myself up. Who knew a stalker from the --------(not telling) could catch the interests of first Dawn and then Ronda? I definitely want to pass on the award. But here's the dilemma. What should I base the award on? There are a lot of very deserving blogs out there. But one way out of this would be to keep getting awards. Then I could totally keep paying it forward.
But until I get more awards(hint, hint) I have devised a way to give out these awards.
You, my fellow blogstalkers will tell me what I am looking for. That's right, you.
So leave me a comment and tell me:
#1. Tell me what YOU think makes for a good blog/post
#2. List any blogs you would like to nominate for my consideration.
#3. Sit back and enjoy the wait while I decide who to give this award to In fact, check out some of the cool blogs to the right.
I don't think this is that hard. I might even give out the awards to the best comments I receive on today's post. You'll just have to participate to find out who deserves this award.
Who knows It could be you.

So on a serious note. Okay on a slightly coherent thread of thought , I want to generate some fun banter. Now I really like music. All kinds of music. But there is also some music I just can't stand. I sometimes relate life moments to songs and think, Jeez, that song totally would be playing right now in the movie of my life. But that's a totally different post. What was the purpose of this post anyway? Oh yeah, so instead of tagging a bunch of you and then waiting to see if any of you had the time or the interest to respond in your own blog. I decided to just ask you my questions and have you post your answers as comments. Pretty painless don't you think? Really, you don't have to keep going back to the other post to see what the questions are or cutting and pasting. Just leave your comment and move on. Or then leave another comment amending your first. Whatever it takes. So will this go over well with you my fellow bloggers, or will I be shunned by the blogging world for straying outside the comfort zone?
I really do have a question, so if you are still here reading, thank you for sticking around.
Today's Question: What are your favorite bands/artists from the eighties? And remember this is an all ages question. You were either around during the eighties or you have seen all the VH-1 remembering the eighties. At the very least, some of the bands from the 80's are actually still together.
So come on bloggers, don't disappoint me.

There were no rules associated with this award, but I wanted to pass it along to just a few of the blogs I like. So, in no particular order I award the following blogs:
I would award even more blogs but then it would diminish the value. I encourage those who got an award to pass on the award to other blogs they think deserve it.
Okay, that is done. I want to say I have not been disappointed with most of the blogs I check out or others have turned my attention to. I will still link anyone to this blog who would like me to. The rules are the same: You must tell me you want me to link to you in a comment and you need to leave your URL (blog address).
That being said I want you to know that I intend to keep this blog readable by all who would like to come by. I will not link to objectionable sites or blogs with objectionable content. I will be the judge of what is objectionable. I implore the readers of this blog to inform me if they find a link of which they think might fit into this category. I do read every blog I link to but not all previous posts etc. And things can slip through the cracks.
WOW! I sound so Gestapo-ish. Enough of that, just keep the comments coming. I hope you guys are having as much fun as I am.

So I was wondering, is it just me or are Mondays the slowest most unproductive, if something can go wrong it will day of the week?
Is there anyone who wants to vent their Monday stories here? (sometimes, others can feel better reading about someone else having a bad day. I think it may even be therapeutic. So dish already, you'll feel better)

Lets do a roll call shall we. Tell me where your from and the thing you most like about where you live. The weather, or your close to mom, or there's a bakery across the street that always smells oh so sweet.
Have a great day!

is anyone watching them?
Is Phelps and his record ever going to be beat? and are you shocked at how dominant he has been?
Is your country representing themselves there. Is there any national pride where you live?
Questions to ask and things to ponder.
Leave a note and let me know what you think
I also love good photography. If you know a good blog with great photos, share it please. I will not link photos from my blog-stalking without the Bloggers consent.
Have a great day!
