  4. Jamie,
    Wow, thank you. I actually found your blog while I was researching the origins of this particular award. I’m afraid I haven’t been able to find anything before May of this year on the award. So, if you know anyone who knows someone who might know something about it, could you point them my direction? Thanks.

    That being said, I am very honored to receive this nomination from you. I am behind on doing the “acceptance” posts for some other awards, so, it may take a little while for me to get it done, but once I do, I will link it here. For now, your nomination has been included in what I call the parking lot, my Award Cornucopia page. It has the links back to this post and to the post where your nomination appeared on my site.

    I’m looking forward to browsing around and getting to know yourblog.
    Be well,
