I would like to say a big thank you to Linda aka The FootnoteMaven for awarding me the BFF (Blogging Friends Forever) award. I’m actually a new visitor to Linda’s websites Shades of the Departed and FootnoteMaven. Shades of the Departed
is a unique and beautifully designed photography blog showcasing many rare and old photographs, whilst FootnoteMaven is an interesting genealogy blog where Linda shares stories about her ancestors via interesting posts and treasured rare photos. As some of my readers know I’m very interested in tracing my own family tree and this is definitely something I look forward to doing in the future.

In turn I would like to pass this award onto Alastair, a Vicar and fellow Brit at New Kid on the Blog for his well written and interesting posts on everyday life and what it means to be a Christian in today’s busy society, Sank from Old and In the Way for his wonderful and sometimes very funny articles, some of which wouldn’t be out of place in fishing or boating magazines, Sandy from Writing in Faith for her beautiful and inspirational blog with its heartwarming posts and wonderful photos, Jackie from The Vegan Diet and Herbs 'n' Oils for the great recipes and wonderful, interesting posts. Both blogs hold a great wealth of information for those wishing to live a healthier lifestyle like myself,

And last but not least Kalafudra, a new visitor to my blog whose based in Vienna, one of my favourite European cities.

Please feel free to copy the award shown and display it on your blog. I have made so many friends in the Blogosphere. There are many more people I would like to pass this award onto – five is not nearly enough! I know some of you visit the same blogs I do so I'm sure between us we can ensure the award gets passed on to anyone whose not on my list.

The rules for passing on the award are:

1. Only five people are allowed to receive the award.
2. Four of them must be followers of your blog.
3. One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

Hi Naomi.
Thanks you for the nice comments and the award. I've never been successful in figuring out how to pass these things along so forgive me if it dies but I will give it a try tomorrow night when I'm home.. I do regret lastnights post however.. if folks were to visit for the first time thanks to your award they wouldn't be very impressed with the crabby dude bitching about his aliments.

Have a great day and thanks again!

Sank and Jackie, you were amongst the first cyberfriends I met on the Blogosphere. I always appreciate all the helpful and supportive comments you all leave. Here's to many more happy blogging times ahead!
