Good friend and blogger bud, Gina Stoneheart nominated me for this award several weeks ago. Thank you, Gina:)  Apologies for the lateness of posting it. Without further adieu, here are the rules and regs:

And my inspirations......

Heading the list, of course, is my retirement. Let me just say......come on in, the water's fine.
My second inspiration is huge. Alzheimer's may be curable by ultrasound. Human testing is to start in two years.Wouldn't it be miraculous if something this simple did the trick? Here's the link if you're interested:
And last but not least Love, Lattes and Mutants got a mention from Serena Chase on


  1. Congratulations and thank you!!
    That's awesome your book was mentioned at USA Today. And cured by ultrasound? That would be a real miracle.

  2. You're most welcome, Alex.
    Wouldn't that be one of the best gifts to mankind ever, if Alz. could be cured...easily and cheaply.
    Thank you, it was a wonderful surprise.

  3. Congrats, and thanks, I think. My Dad had Alz. Hard to watch someone decline. Would be awesome if a simple procedure could correct it

  4. Hey CJ, I'm so sorry about your dad. My mom had it too. Unfortunately, it ran rampant on my grandfather's side of the family.
    If you don't have time to do the award thing, just consider it an honorary award:)

    1. PS The frequently make me laugh is a compliment. You post 'good' funnies.

  5. Thanks for the award. Wow, that would be awesome if that came to be. Could help so many people. Sadly North America will be the last to adopt it though with the greedy sob drug pushers.

  6. Unfortunately, I'm afraid you may be right, Pat. Don't you wonder, what cures have already been buried for a lot of the diseases out there.

  7. Well deserved! That's a good list you got there. :) Thanks for always being so positive. Retirement sounds like heaven... ;)

    1. Hi Anna,
      Yes indeed. Heaven is a good work to describe it:)

  8. My first compliment of the day. No doubt my last one too ;)

  9. I'm sure there are many compliments awaiting you, Blue:)

  10. Thank you and and congrats to you. Very cool stuff.

  11. Congrats to you! I will look this up about Alzheimers

    1. Hi Birgit, Wouldn't it be wonderful if it moves forward and eradicates the problem.
      Thank you;)

  12. Gee Sandra...I am speechless!
    Thanks so much for the award...
    So glad you enjoy my photography♥️
    Very nice inspirations as well...
    Saw a bit about the Alzheimers...fabulous!!
    Enjoy your retirement!!
    Can't wait to see if Blue joins in...
    Enjoy your day!!
    Linda :o)

  13. Aww, thank you! I'm honored. I'll note it for blog is already completely done through April 21st (thanks to A to Z, A to Z reveal, Best Books of March, and two guest blogs I'm hosting between now and the end of the month!).
