Another Real Honour (or Honor) . . .

Giver’s Gain.  ~Thomas D. Willhite

This week a wonderful blogger, Sandy at Another Lovely Day, nominated me for another blog award, Family of Bloggers.  Sandy is one of the first blogs I started following well over a year ago and since she lives on the Central Coast of California, not far from where I went to high school, her stories, insights and pictures have a special place in my heart.  So, thank you, Sandy.

If you don’t know about Another Lovely Day, then please visit and sign up.  You will be glad you did.


To pass on this award, it is my pleasure to nominate the following:

Raunak @doakonsult  For being a member of my spiritual family

Malcolm at Malcolm’sCorner  For being a member of my business family

Peter Cook – The Rock’n’Roll Business Blogger For being part of my weird music family

The great people at the North Atlantic Salmon Fund, for being part of my flyfishing life

You should see what all these great people are doing to improve the world, on all fronts.

If those nominated choose to accept this award, the guidelines can be found here.

Again, thank you Sandy, for the nomination.
