I’m a Dragon


Thank you Jean for the nomination 🙂 It pleases me to no end that you thought of me.

Jean’s Writing is a great read full of info and tips. Follow her.

Personally, I love these WordPress awards because it really creates a sense of community for me. I feel connected with the blogger who nominated me and with my own nominee’s. Whether we communicate privately or not is irrelevant.  You read my stuff and I read your stuff and we all learn something new, get inspired or speak our minds.

This award, in particular, is given to those who have commented and/or followed a blog.  So, once again thank you!

Here Are The Rules For This Award:

 * Display the award certificate on your website.
*  Announce your win with a post, and link to whomever presented your award.
* Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
* Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post.
* Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
First, 7 interesting things about myself:
  • – I can make awesome shooters. Candy Canes and Brain Hemorrhages are my favorites to make…not drink. Word of advice…do not accept a Brain Hemorrhage from anyone who wants to buy it for you but won’t order it themselves. They’ve obviously tried it before. It does look super cool though and can be considered a badge of honour. lol
  • – I do impromptu lip sync performances at the drop of the hat at work or with my friends. If there are no words, then ballet-ish contempory is what you will get. Possibly some mock symphony conducting.
  • – I have punched my mother in the face.
  • – Don’t worry, it was by accident when we were in Karate class 🙂 Point four is I took Karate and Kickboxing.
  • – I try to save the spiders that keep making a web on my car’s side mirror.  I will slow down to a stop on my street if it looks like it’s a smart one trying to crawl back into the mirror for safety. I probably wait longer than should.
  • – I do not own a cell phone.
  • – I have 5 years left to learn how to fly and sail if I want to keep to my schedule.
Now here are my nominees, in no particular order but chosen for the comments, the likes and how much I enjoy their posts 🙂
  1. AimerBoyz
  2. Babbitman
  3. Kore Desires
  4. Cow Pasture Chronicles
  5. Berrydutchess
  6. Charles Yallowitz (Legends of Windemere)

  10. My Two Sentences
  11. Storytime with John
  12. Hocuspocus13
  13. Conrad (The Wine Wankers)
  14. The Way of the Wytch
  15. My Mom – She might not be on WordPress but she follows and comments and I love her.

I’m Not Feeling It WordPress

So glow little icon, glow! Give me that virtual validation that you do, do so well.


This was a line of an early post, Finding Inspiration, trying to describe the bubbling, good feeling I got every time that notification icon lit up with some symbol. I’m still new and I still love to see that giant orange star or @ symbol and especially the Plus!

But now they’re gone and I’m finding their replacement to be seriously anticlimactic.

The bell is cute. One little, teeny tiny orange dot, kind of on the top but sloping down the side of it though? I feel like that’s what it should have used to be; not the new and improved version.

So WordPress, Daily Post – I’m not feeling it.  Sorry.  I like most of your improvements, and maybe I’m a lone cry-baby here but…maybe I’m not.


Welcome to the Collective Y. This is a weekly feature where I will present a word containing Y that I find interesting; in the look, the meaning etc, and ask you to tell me the first thing that comes to mind.  Maybe it inspires a scene, a poem or just a feeling.  Let me know!

In the light of this spooky week, I’ll kick off the Collective Y with:
