Liebster Award

Oh, no! Not another meme! Recently, Olene Quinn nominated me for The Liebster Award. In case you're wondering what Liebster means -- I know I was -- it's a German word meaning sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Gee, after hearing all that, how can I not play along as a nominee for this award which is meant to promote bloggers. If you're listed as one of my 11 bloggers that I nominate, please pass it on if you have time.

Readers, hope you discover a new blog to love from those I nominate.


Sigh. There are always rules, aren't there?

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer. (I'm doing no-brainer questions for my nominees.)
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them. (I'll email, Tweet, or Comment on your blog -- whichever I have time for.)
5. No tag backs!
6. Post an image of the award on your blog. There are many versions available. (Just copy the image above or plug Liebster Award image into a search engine of your choice to choose another.)

That's it. If you want to play along, just post your answers, your nominees, etc. on your own blog.

2. I love lemon meringue pie.

9. I hate injustice of any kind.
10. I owned my own airplane once.
