Well, my dear Conor has nominated me for the Versatile blogger award! Oh, again I feel humbled! Thank you Conor Bofin of Ireland for the nomination! I bow to you sir! Please check out One Man’s Meat either by clicking on the address in this email or on the right where I have a link to his site! And, be sure to try out his recipes!

Not knowing what this was, behind the scenes I sent Conor an email asking what the heck a “Versatile Blogger Award” is. Duh, Barb, look it up on the internet….Another bit of learning curve Conor, that and jet lag from an ungodly 15 hour return trip from Hawaii!

So here is the scoop: The “Versatile Blogger Award/Nomination” has the rules posted at the following WordPress site:
