When Life Hands You Lemons awards

So, somehow I earned an award from Skye.??

Is it time for one of those long winded acceptance speeches? Can my inner diva break free and become a demanding bitch?? I've always wanted too, but somehow the laid back part of me just doesn't want to expand that much negative energy.

According to this award, I have to now pass this on to some other deserving recepients?

My first "When Life Hands You Lemons" award goes to maggie @ Maggie's Musings. My long time cohort in informing the clueless and one third of an originating trio of troublesome forum posters

My next one goes to doug @ Doug Plumb the other third of the trio (with me filling the other role)

My next award goes to Brian @ Brian's Blog . One of the very first bloggers when I started my blog to drop me a friendly and welcoming note and link to me on his blog. It was much appreciated.

Then another blogger who, like myself, had the honour of having the notorious "do-gooder' Mubin Shaik, ( famed Toronto 18 RCMP informant, multi-millionaire vis a vis Canadian taxpayers) dollars visit their blogs, to blow smoke Disobedia !

Then I think Dee over at Thoughts by Dee deserves a "When Life Hands You Lemons" award. Why? Because it has to be so tough being a muslim in the political climate of this time. Yet, the vibe she gives off is never one of anger or fear, it is concern and caring. That has got to be tough in this day of ostracization!

Then nobody, skye gave him one for the haiku blog, I am not going to. Dam haiku's enough to drive you crazy! The award would be for the other blog, the church of NOBODY, and let this be a lesson to you nobody, when you have more then one blog, you can get more then one award.

Another blog that gets the "When Life Hands You Lemons" ,that I do look at, but sorry, I never leave a comment. Nonetheless it is a lovely blog. Paisley Ridge

Hmm next a new blogger, just starting out, and I am encouraging him or her to continue on, the more voices the better. Take the Red Pill.

This is a combo award to two bloggers.
Meria Heller and Dave McGowan. Meria who for reasons known to the listeners deserves this award not so much for her blog, but for the fact that she is one of the toughest and yet most loveable ladies I know of. When life hands her lemons she not only makes lemonade, but she shares it with everyone. And Dave McGowan just because I am such a huge fan of his blog, the Laurel Canyon series and his 9/11 stuff. Best of all, he is true to himself.

The tenth award goes to A view from the Swallows Nest, this blogger gives life to the words
"crotchety old man"! he he he. "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" All that aside, he is a good joe! What with all the whining at skye's I thought I should pass a nod along. Do with it what you will!


  1. Mmmmmm fresh lemonade!

    ta dear!

    (We weren't really all that 'troublesome' were we?? Surely not us... ;) ).

    ~ Buffy sipping a cool one!

  2. Snark::"!Bah humbug and fiddledee sticks. Lemons is not but sour fruit created by the devil to pucker mens faces and to curdle the soul of mankind.

  3. so silv, clearly you will not be making lemonade?

    and maggie, troublesome in a good way

  4. ha, very cute. Yes when life gives you lemons, you need to squeeze the crap out of them for the "juice". Then take that juice and let it fuel your fire!
    Thanks for the kudos!

  5. WOW TY dear lady!!! :) Lemonade is so refreshing and it's almost in season again.

    Let's go stomp some more lemons cuz I will NOT go sour due to what is handed to me. The silver lining exists you just have to look harder at times to find it. :)

  6. You picked some fine blogs to pass this on to Penny, Congrats! :)

  7. Thanks Pen, you're so lovely.

    I do hope that no one minds that I haven't reciprocated yet. I'm waiting until I've received this award from ten separate people. Once that's occurred the question of who to give my ten awards to will be solved for me.

    Oh! Bloody genius, me!
