Move over Meryl Streep

I am nominated for 4 awards!

Cool, right?

Well yes, except I have been busy with packing and downsizing I am running way late on responding to them.  I was thinking if it is okay with you, I could combine 2 awards in this post and later today, I will have another post with the other 2 awards.  If you get through this whole post, you get a gold star – lots of information here.

These 2 awards I have previously been nominated for.  So here we go –

Sunshine Blogger Award_1

The rules:

1.Thank the person that nominated you.

2.Answer the 11 questions from your nominator.

3.Nominate 11 bloggers.

4.Give them 11 questions to answer.

Questions for me:

1.What do you prefer: shopping or reading a book?

Tough question, because I really dislike shopping and reading a book would be difficult for me.  When I shop, I go for a particular product.  When I read, my attention span is short, therefore I prefer reading blog posts instead of books.

2.Did you ever sing karaoke in public?

I have once that I can remember.  I actually have a post about this in the coming weeks that will be part of my ‘Pictures & Stories’ category.

3.You´ve won 1 million US-Dollars but can´t keep it for yourself – what would you do with it instead?

Give it to my sons.

4.If time-travels were possible where – oops!  when would you travel: future or the past?

I would say the past.  I prefer to leave the future a mystery and not know what will take place.

5.What brings sunshine into your life? (apart from the sun, of course😉 )

Ice Cream, Cake, Cookies, Cup Cakes, did I mention Ice Cream?

6.What kind of super-power would you like to have? (like telepathy, flying etc.)

Teleportation – the ability to travel fast from one place to another.

7.Have you ever encountered a “troll” in the blogosphere? And how did you handle it?

Oh you know I have – read these posts: ‘It’s about you – not me’ & ‘You know who you are

8.Do you watch documentaries?

Occasionally when I happen to come across one.

9.What aspect of blogging do you like the most?

The interaction with wonderful friends I have met here.

10.If you could start your own business – what would it be?

Making cupcakes that bring happiness to people’s lives.  Did I mention, I would serve the cupcakes with a side of ice cream!

11.Pop Corn – with salt or sugar?

Salt and please lots of butter!

My Questions:

1.If you were ruler of the world what laws would you make?

2.If you were a super hero what would your hero name be?

3.What would you do if you won the lottery?

4.What talents do you have?

5.What is your favorite holiday?

6.If you could live anywhere, where would that be?

7.If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?

8.Would you rather trade some intelligence for looks or looks for intelligence?

9.How long could you go without talking?

10.What was your favorite birthday?

11.What historical Figure would you love to see in 21st century life?

  3. Loaded with silverware and rightly so! You deserve every award and accolade you get and later today I will take the time to visit all the blogs you have nominated (I am confident that I have read all your posts). One more thing … you have many friends from blogging because you are a man who really makes an effort. You remain one of the most precious things to have come into my life in a very long time and I thank YOU!!! Cupcakes with Ice-cream are technically illegal, I am sure and I am very happy to break the law and partake at your imaginary shop 🙂
