Two for Tuesday

I'm going to really get a lot of mileage out of the "Two fer" concept.

First, the blog received 2 awards.

One is from the Goddess at http://www.overfortyandlovingit.com/ (which is a personal blog)


and the second is from http://www.castocreationsjewelry.blogspot.com/ (which is a place to find nice hand- crafted jewelry)

I don't usually pass them along for a couple reasons. First, I usually pass them along to Jenn, and she complained about the upkeep. You know, virtual dusting. Liberal applications of Glass Wax, stuff like that. Second, they come with so many rules, I will most likely screw them up. Rather than do that, and put a burden on the recipient, I'm just going to give an award, stringless as it were, and show some of my readers some of the great blogs I read.

I'd like to pass along one award to Charmaine at www.charmaine-greymatters.blogspot.com/
Charmaine describes her misadventures as a woman in her 40's in the dating world. She is hilarious. When she takes a "dating break" she posts some awesome recipes, along with a story. In her most recent post, she talked about veal. I haven't eaten veal since sometime in the 1980's, and after reading her post, I'm still not eating veal, but she makes a compelling argument for some veal dish this weekend. I'd like to bestow the Kreativ Blogger Award on her.

The next blog I'd like to highlight, and give the Blog Love award to Laura from www.junkfoodaholic.com/
and her husband Paul from http://www.paulshealthblog.com/

Talk about really pushing the Two fer concept. This husband and wife team write seperate health blogs and are both a good read. I hope you enjoy all the blogs I highlighted today.

I'm going to be busy scouring the interwebs searching for an extra special picture to caption this week.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid It will be interesting.

I have a yorkie and I know not to mess with the killer dog on duty.

Hey congrats on the awards :)

Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year, may your rantings continue full throttle.

I like Paul's Health Blog. I go there to see what I need to do to stay in good shape, and then I do the opposite. Cheap entertainment.

I've got your friend beat for sure on the length of a dating break! OY! I need to break the break. As always congrats on the awards. Please stop by to see something for you.

@ Etta: Thanks

@ Lord I want to be: Thank you and Merry Christmas

@ Jafabrit: Happy Christmas to you, and thanks. Yes, that Yorkie is a great guard dog.

@ Don: I read it and do the opposite. It hasn't worked well for me, though. I should probably take some of his advice.

@ Heather: Thanks. I was just amazed by it. Realized a lot of men are jerks.

@ Lauren: I stop by every day. Here's hoping you lose the record.

@ Sandee: Thanks. You have a great day, also.

Charmaine said...

Crotchety Old Man, what's gotten into you lately? You're mellowing out and stuff. Being all nice and everything.

You have a reputation to uphold. Tighten up!
