Feb. 24

This blog has won a blog award from Authors Promoting Authors blog. It is called the seven facts award. You are supposed to share seven facts about yourself and then pass the award on to seven other great bloggers. So, first of all Thank You! Your kind words about my blog made my day. I've linked to you here so my readers can find you.
Blog awards are a fun way to highlight some of the blogs I read daily. But some bloggers are tired of the awards and coming up with people to award them to, they feel it is more like spam. (Note I say they not me.) And I've heard from people I've linked to that they don't appreciate the link. So, I'm a little leery of linking or awarding blog awards. So, I will give you the seven fun facts and then I'll mention some of the great blogs out there with links. But I won't pass on the award so that I don't cause trouble with other bloggers. I hope you understand.
Seven Fun Facts:
1) I spent four years in the US Air Force as a satellite downlink tech.
2) I have an Associates degree in Electronic Engineering and worked as an electronics tech for seven years repairing modems, heart monitors, computers and testers.
3) I don't have a favorite color- I guess that's a bit odd, but I love all colors of the rainbow. My favorite depends on my mood for the day.
4) My favorite season is Fall. I love the first cool breeze. The whiff of straw and falling leaves. The bright blue skies and the colors of the plants.
5) I was on the debate team in high school.
6) I played clarinet and was in the marching band, orchestra, pep band and concert band-usually as first chair. (Yes I was a nerd/geek.)
7) Someday I'd love to learn to play piano.
So there you have it.
Some of my favorite bloggers are: Linda Kage, Anita Laydon Miller, Talli Roland, Marilyn Brant, Maureen Lang, The Happy Whisk, Judy Croome Please pop over and see what great things they are blogging about.
