I want to thank the academy for the honorable mention. I really did the picture post to share a snippet of the life that is a legend, and the story that is me, on a cold day, on the run.
I want to thank Kiki for nominating it, knowing full well that her check is in the mail.
Again, thank you, and God bless.

To Fantod, Labbie, jamwall, and especially to LB, you are the soul and spirit of the blogworld, and I am so happy that you are part of us! I hope we see more of you, more from you, and get to spend more time with you!

When I say the pleasure is all mine, I mean it!!!

I would personally love to thank the nominators who keep coming up with such wonderful writing and photography for us to view. I would NEVER have found half of your without our nominators. You all brightent my day.

And LB - I was thinking of you th other day. My husband, L&M (short for "the Lord and Master") took me to lunch at a restaraunt that my boys both worked in through high school. Guess what was on the apps menu??? POUTINE!!! Except they called them "Montreal Fries". But I knew what they really were! I didn't try them (I'm a vegetarian), but I went into a long dissertation to L&M about what they were, and how they were made, and just how delicious they are supposed to be, hoping to entice him to try them!

No go. He did his usual "house salad with bleu cheese dressing". If the man ever tries anything new, I'll SWEAR he's having an affair!!! :-D

Again, guys, THANK YOU!

Thanks for the award in area of "photo-site". I am glad the public and blog world is enjoying the effort I've put into both experimental photography and the maintaining of a public community about such experiments! Thanks again for visiting.

Sorry it's off-topic but I just thought I would post this where people could easily find it. Ever heard of the blog If you haven't don't feel bad, most people haven't heard of it either. Just wanted to let everyone here know that Moxie is what's known as a Left gatekeeper, which is someone like Michael Moore or Amy Goodman or Noam Chomsky or Bill Maher etc., who at first blush appears to be a genuine leftist but who strives tirelessly to steer discourse away from matters that would be the most damaging to the establishment, for example 9/11 and U.S. government complicity. She goes about it in quite an immature fashion too, in deleting anyone's posts she can't disprove. For a while she didn't delete posts but just clammed up whenever someone mentioned the 9/11 false flag operation, and for a while I gave her the benefit of the doubt, thinking "Perhaps she's just very psychologically cowardly and can't bear to face unpleasant facts". Well now she is deleting peoples' posts that she cannot disprove and I've called her out on it. Moxie Grrrl is a dupe and a Left gatekeeper. So if you want to go see a blogger that pretends to be edgy and leftist but is nothing more than a gutless, soulless Left gatekeeper carrying water for the mass murderers who brought you the 9/11 inside job, then by all means go to If you want genuine political discourse, go elsewhere. Thank you for your time.
