Meme Monday and Awards Too #3

Melanie came up with the idea of posting all memes on Monday so we could keep track of them all. So glad I decided to do this, 'cause as you can see, I got a few last week! If I didn't get them all in today (this is possible), I'll do it next week. Feel free to ping me if there's a deadline *ahem* 'cause I might miss it.

I recently received a Blog Blessing from Claudia, @ On a Limb who started Everyday Kindness as a way to invite and inspire fellow bloggers to be mindful of small ways to encourage and support one another in the real and virtual worlds.

The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world!

Tag 5 (yeah, well, I have 6): I’d like to give this blessing to RennyBA @ RennyBA's Terella and his wife, DianeCA @ DianeCA's Metamorphoses -- two blogging activists whose goal is to make the world a better place. Their dedication and commitment amazes me. Also, to Colin whose just a flat-out giver and lover. He too is a blogging activist and currently puts a lot of focus on missing kids (esp Madeleine McCann). Mel @ Attitude, The Ultimate Power who's all about surpporting and providing ways to uplift the human spirit. Sandee @ Comedy Plus. I've said it before but want to pound it into the ground -- you're a friend to the end, you provide humor and a giving/loving nature like no other. And, finally Julie who is a hilariously, clever environmentalist -- making this world a better place to live. Need I say more? You've all inspired me to join in your efforts. You are blessings to the world, and to me.

Colin and Hanna -- they really like me, they really like me! (((((huge pooh-tigger hugs)))) Here's the linky lov'n they've passed my way:


Anger is only one letter short of danger
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me…
You brought another friend…
And then there were 3…
We started our group…
Our circle of friends…
And like that circle…
There is no beginning or end…
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
So now, let’s see how many circle’s of friends we can make by simply adding your link on this Friendship Meme!

1-Catsy Carpe Diem, 2- Catsy Downloads, 3-Out of the Blue, 4- A Day to Savor and Relish 5- A Piece of Idea 6- Write Shy 7- Stupid Wise 8- onlinememorylane 9- See Me For What You Will 10- Michelle’s Small World 11. Chez Francine 12. La Place de Cherie 13. Le bric à brac de Cherie 14- Life 15- Foster Me Up 16-ADD YOURSELF HERE!!


Today, I'm tagging the following new friends who don't want anything to do with me now 'cause I'm making them play a silly game chomping at the bit to join in: Julie, Jenn, Joy Is My Goal, Talk to Grams, Mary, and Bluedreamer Paradise.

Pooch, previously tagged me to play the 4 Things About Meme, so I did (really, here's proof: You Make Me Smile. Then, lovely Melanie @ Livin' With Me and adorable Jenn had the same idea. But, who cares. I feel the warm and fuzzies and am gonna come up with new answers, because I'm such a giver and really had not a thing planned for the day *kissies*

4 People To Tag: Roger (of course), MamaGeek (I let you off the hook long enough), Paula (c'mon now -- this one's easy!), Colin and yeah, I'm tagging 5, so what, Bluedreamer Paradise.

My first meme from Mad Tomato -- seriously now. All these honors are making me feel all cuddly.

On February 4, 2008, at 00:00 GMT (7:00 p.m. New York /EST), NASA beamed the Beatles’ “Across The Universe” to the star Polaris, 431 light years away (that’s 431 years travel at the speed of light before our all-time favorite Beatles song reaches the 2.5 quadrillion miles away star). This is being done to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song, the 45th anniversary of NASA’s Deep Space Network, an international network of antennas that supports missions to explore the universe, and the 50th anniversary of NASA.

Across the Universe
NASA has invited people around the world to play “Across the Universe” on their audio systems at the same time NASA beams its mp3 version into outer space. The idea was hatched by Beatles’ historian Martin Lewis, who encourages all Beatles fans to play the track as it is being beamed to the distant star. Additionally, this date will be known as “Across the Universe Day”. The event marks the first time a radio song has been beamed into deep space.

Did You Join the celebration! ('Cause I didn't - Ooops! Sorry Mr. Tomato - dang.)
I'm a failure. I screwed up. There's nothing more to say and nobody to tag 'cause there was a time limit. So sorry. Next time I'll pay closer attention -- by that time, the "L" will be removed from the middle of my forehead.

Award and Meme from Sandee - what a gal *huggies*

I've done this one before, but for my buddy, Sandee, I shall bend over backwards to be supportive *wink* plus, my name changed since then, so it only makes sense!

Rule #1: Copy all the links below and replace a single link under the appropriate letter of the alphabet. If your domain name, or even the title of your blog, starts with an "A," you'd replace the link under that letter and put the replaced link at the bottom. Also, don't forget to credit the tagger, or where you got the list from, at the end of the list with a full URL of the post so that a pingback gets generated.

F. Foster Me Up
T. The Painted Veil

Replaced Link:; Previous Tagger: Sandee

Rule #2: You now have to "tag" at least five people and encourage them to participate so that this thing spreads like a virus. Remember, though, that not everyone's into these kinds of things, so don't be upset if they don't participate. Just simply replace your tag. Remember to tag blogs only and no pornographic ones as we do want to keep the integrity as a blogging community.

I tag: I'm tagging anybody who wants to be tagged. You visit, you want linky-love, you play.

Here's the award she gave me -- look!! *jumping for joy* She says I make her smile - yippee! Thanks, Sandee. You do the same for me. Love ya.

If you're in my blogroll, please take this. You're there for a reason, ya know! And, to you, Bluedreamer Paradise, you're in the "gotta add to my blogroll" list, so please take all of these awards!

More awards:

Lookie, lookie lou (sp?)! From Jenn @ Enjoying The Ride, I say thanks!

And, again, I give these to you in my blogroll, if you haven't yet rec'd. Enjoy!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I'll have a post up before the day is out. Thanks for always thinking of me. Off to work now. Have a great day. :)

RennyBA said...

What a wonderful meme post and thanks for tagging me. It's a great encourage and I feel very supported dear new blogger friend!

So far I have at least collected it on my Awards page and maybe I'll post a similar one when I find the time :-)

ALF said...

whoa - that is a lot of meme's.

Crys said...

It was long but I read the WHOLE thing!!

jenn said...

That is the longest post I think I've ever read!!! I like the idea of doing all the meme's on monday's...I might join in with that!

Pam said...

Ah! Your comments on my blog made me blush! I am honored! Thanks so much. I love having people stop by my blog--sometimes I wonder if I am just crazy thinking other people actually want to read what I am spitting out. So thanks!!

HRH said...

I think the Monday idea is great. I always seem to be posting something random on Monday!

KC said...

Desparate Housewives would have been #1 on my list if the writer strike was over and I could watch it.. So for the mean time i watch whatever they have on TV that is new.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Monday Morning Power said...

Hey Chuck,
During the last three months, as you know, I have been involved in putting forth three very successful meme "Why do you Blog?", "New Year's Resolution", and "Big Bang", with the Big Bang being the best by far, almost 500 sites and still frowing. I have learned quite a bit about what goes into a meme and how to make them successful.
1. Linking memes need a loop-back process so that everyone benefits. That means that the creator has to put in a lot of time and effort. Just putting out out the meme and letting it go in many directions has the effect of being a pyramid scheme where only the few at the beginning benefit without putting any effort into it.
2. Tagging - I do not like a rule that forces someone to tag other sites. Tagging should be an option, not a condition.
3. Fun memes are different. Memes that generate some insight into the author or are just plain fun are very different.

I am sorry for being so long winded, and you may delete this comment if you wish.

I may just write a post in regards to memes. Anyway, I don't think anyone wants to see a tag from me right now.

Thanks for thinking of me, though and I CAN"T WAIT for your next book installment.

Chuck said...

Honestly, Mel, I agree totally with your long-winded comment. I'm always exhausted afterwards and feel I spent so much more time than I should have. In add'n, if everybody visited me everyday, I wouldn't have to go find everyone. As always, I appreciate your feedback...BTW: I just learned of a Make Me Laugh Monday. I might be heading in that direction.

Joyismygoal said...

Hi chuck thanks for your fun words and thinking of me am i tagged for the 4 thing or another?

Chuck said...

Sure! It's the friendship meme -- the one with tigger/pooh! Enjoy :)

livin with me said...

Wow- you had a lot to do! I'm so jealous that you are taking a cruise this year. I'm pretty sure you should bring me along.

Roger said...

Thanks for the awards & the tag I dont know if I can get around to do it, life just got to hetic (sounds like a good cop out huh) But your a awesome blogger! Hugs & much love !! :D

ZAM said...

Wow! These are lots. BTW, Nottinghill is one of my favorite movies.

Thanks for the visit.

Julie said...

Thanks!!! I'll get right on that other meme -- the four one -- maybe tomorrow. Today I have the dregs of a migraine and organizing an answer is beyond me...

As for the blessing, I am passing it on to Tasina, who always always makes me laugh, and Sarcastic Mom, who is the reason I posted the environmental stuff in the first place, and has encouraged everybody to be a little greener!

Julie said...

I forgot kim, at frog ponds rock, who is a blessing because she creates homes for lizards and frogs in her garden. Oh, yeah, she lives in Tasmania, Australia, so this blessing is going world wide!

Chuck said...

Go, Julie, go!
