July 2, 2013…Thank you Ellie…New Creations Ministries

inner peace awardLiebster award

.

I have been in receipt of a few awards lately, however, my time and my

incompetence on the blog cut and paste has prevented me from accepting

all the kudos that have been sent my way.

I will attempt to thank everyone and if your name and site have been

omitted, do not feel slighted, just chalk it up to Michael’s old age.

.

Here are the Rules:

1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Nominate (up to) eleven bloggers for these awards.
3. Notify the bloggers.
4. Ask eleven questions the bloggers must answer upon receiving the nomination.
5. Answer the eleven questions you were asked when you were nominated and post your awards.

.

Here are Ellie’s questions for me to answer before I can post the awards:

1. Would you rather win an Academy Award, Nobel Prize, Pulitzer or Grammy?
Nobel Peace Prize…anything that can make this world a better place for all.

2. If you could interview anyone alive, who would it be and why?
Warren Buffett…awesome individual who has skills our nations leaders need to learn.

3. What era in history would you have loved to have lived?
Love the here and now..and it is only getting better.

4. Do you think parents play favorites with their children?
Not favorites, but they should support each child differently in order to meet their needs.

5. Do you prefer cooking at home or eating out?
Balance….some of both for many obvious reasons.
6. What’s the best gift you ever received?
Life…

7. If you could be anyone in history who would it be and why?
Michelangelo, Ben Franklin and/or a few others who were multi-talented, super productive.

8. Do you believe dinosaurs lived the same time as man?
Don’t know…don’t care…

9. Where do you see yourself  five years from now?
At 69 years of age I just hope to be sitting here writing in five years.

10. If you ever had “15 minutes of fame”, what was it for?
Not me…

11. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?
On a sail boat visiting as many tropical ports as I could explore.
.

Not being too original. I will borrow Ellie’s  questions for you

to answer before you can post the awards:

  1. Would you rather win an Academy Award, Nobel Prize, Pulitzer or Grammy?
  2. If you could interview anyone alive, who would it be and why?
  3. What era in history would you have loved to have lived?
  4. Do you think parents play favorites with their children?
  5. Do you prefer cooking at home or eating out?
  6. What’s the best gift you ever received?
  7. If you could be anyone in history who would it be and why?
  8. Do you believe dinosaurs lived the same time as man?
  9. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
  10. If you ever had “15 minutes of fame”, what was it for?
  11. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?

I have been nominated again for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Thanks to :

The Seeker      http://theseeker57.wordpress.com

HillbillyZen    http://hillbillyzen.com

Thank you Angie for this Award.

Angie is a versatile blogger (she has that award too) who just blogs from

the heart. The joy is in not knowing what she will come up with next.

A Canadian who does not write with an accent (aye), however,  her mind

has obviously been warped by too many cold winters.

Please visit my friend at:

http://angiesgrapevine.wordpress.com/

  1. Here are the rules of the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award:
    1.) Display the award logo on your blog.
    2.) Link back to the person who nominated you.
    3.) State 7 things about yourself.
    4.) Nominate 15 bloggers for this award.
    5.) Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back

7 Facts about me :D

1. I am a procrastinator, amazing that I post a blog a day,

sometimes more:       https://michaelerb.wordpress.com/

2. Old, said that before, and now the metabolism is down to zero.

My old nickname was “Fireplug”, my new nickname is “Bowling Ball”.

3. Working on my third wife (20 years), got drunk and lost the first two.

4. My mantra: “Be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant, be forgiving,

be the person God wants me to be.”

Still working on the patience.  Stupidity (Politicians) ires me.

5. Quiet advocate. Pets, children and old people. (In that order)

6. Prayer, meditation and yoga are allowing me to better enjoy my life,

just wish I would have listened to the God messages when I was younger.

7. Seven years in Florida and I now am in love with the two seasons,

warm and hot. Brain freezes are no longer a threat.

AND NOW FOR THE NEXT AWARD

On to the rules of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award  :D :D :D :D

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent! Some that I have chosen are just unique.)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  • http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/about/                               This link gives you all the nitty gritty, just in case I didn’t follow the rules correctly, which I usually don’t.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself

In no particular order I have recently started “following” these great blogs :

About ME :

Seven Things: (Cheating…some things are borrowed from my About ME)

1. Old, by the grace of a loving Higher Power. (Retired in Florida)

2. Becoming a curmudgeon and learning to love it.

3. School teacher by education and probably one of the worst teachers ever. Thank God I did it for only 5 years.

4. Amateur photographer..all of the pictures in all of my blogs are mine.

5. I love quotes:

a.Quotes are nothing but inspiration for the uninspired.

~ Richard Kemph

b.) I quote others only in order the better to express myself.

~ Michel De Montaigne

6. I am a damned Yankee (Pennsylvania) .

Yankees go south to visit, Damned Yankees stay.

7. ME (are my initials) and the Boss, the Boss being either God or my wife, depending on who is standing beside me.

.

.

Love, Hugs and Prayers,,,ME and the Boss
