My First Award, A Real Neat Blog Award

real-neat-blog-award
I received an award from Dear Kitty. Some Blog. Thank you so very much. Dear Kitty. Some Blog is an excellent blog that I enjoy reading.

The ‘rules’ of the Real Neat Blog Award are:

1. Put the award logo on your blog.

2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Now to answers the questions: These will be the same questions I pose to my nominees.

1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?
Ans: I seem to have a very interesting cross-section of visitors. As my blog is across between; family and historical stories, political commentary and women’s rights and issues. I am happy to meet all of them.

2. What is your favourite sport?
Ans: Golf. I enjoy the masochistic feelings of every bad shot, knowing that I will never get better. Yet today I sank an impossible putt, reminiscent of Tiger Woods on the 17th at Sawgrass while the announcer bellows, “Better than most!” Which confirms that I shall be back to play another day.

3. What has been a special moment for you in 2015 so far?
Ans: It was not a good moment, so I won’t elaborate.

4. What is your favourite quote?
Ans: “Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence!”
— Carl Sagan, Astronomer

5. What was your favourite class when still at school?
Ans: Painting & Graphic arts, so how I ended up doing a PhD in Philosophy I have no idea.

6. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?
Ans: The ability to write fiction.

7. What musical instrument have you tried to play?
Ans: None. For some reason, I was never interested.

    Congratulations on a well deserved award. I am most impressed that you’re still trying to tame that little white ball! I doff my golf cap to you.

  2. Thank you for mentioning me too. I don’t remember ever actually getting any kind of award before. It will take me some time (read: a few days) to put together a post to answer your questions.
