WordPress Family Award

Miss Harper Lee presented me with the WordPress Family Award. Please drop by Miss Harper Lee blog and see what this beautiful Golden Retriever has been up too. The WordPress Family Award was started by Shaun @  http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com. Here is a description of the award and the rules from Shaun:

Award Description:

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the ‘WordPress Family.’ I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents ‘Family’ we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award.”


  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
  4. Let your 10 family members know you have awarded them.

This ‘N That Thursday


Today we join our friends at the 2 Brown Dawgs blog for This ‘N That Thursday.
“This ‘N That Thursday is for those times when you want to post about unrelated topics or each topic isn’t quite long enough to make up a whole post. It can be anything you want, so feel free to grab the button and join us!”
I would like to start out by thanking Misty Shores Chesapeakes again for another nomination for 2012 Blog Of The Year Award. That means I get one more star to add to my collection. I am now up to 2 out of 6 stars so thank you again Misty Shores Chesapeakes.
Here is the info about the 2012 Blog Of The Year Award if you missed it on my other post.

It is a bit different than other awards because you get to collect a star each time you are nominated. How cool is that!

Here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/ and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…


Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

Here are our picks for this award in no particular order and we want you to know how much we enjoyed reading each and every one of your blogs last year.

This is what Glory was doing Easter Sunday morning.

Much better to play in water than run in a ring.

Gambler and Glory had a ton of run running in the water across the street from us. This water is in the marsh right across the road from us. Normally this marsh is dry and they make marsh hay on it. Because of all the snow we have had it has melted and created a water hole that won’t be here long. So the dogs thought they better have some fun in it while they can.
