Shine on Award – (or Maybe I’ll call it: The Summer Solstice and Super Moon Award)


Now that Summer is officially here and the days are allowed to blend together, I thought this would be a perfect time to accept the “Shine on Award” that “FunnyPhilosopher” nominated me for on his site last week. It was a nice surprise, a ray of sunshine, a refreshing splash of water in the comment section of my Trifecta article about Summer – condensed into 33 words.  Thank you for the nomination – I accept!

Here are the rules:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.  

2. Link back to the person who nominated you.  

3. State 7 things about yourself. Here goes —

1.  I still am working on how to work the logistics of the blog – and hope to have it figured out in the next few weeks. I might be changing addresses so please watch for announcements.


2.  I love statistics. Seriously  And all the data. But I hate math.
r =                        nxy – (x)(y)                        
sqrt[n(x2) – (x)2] · sqrt[n(y2) – (y)2]
3.  My favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin – yes, I like them better than chocolate chip!

4.  I hate housework and cooking. I was the first one in highschool to petition out of “home ec” – on the grounds I was college prep, would have a career, and would hire help. (The help has been sporadic, but I’m a great fan of the Chaos Theory; an INTJ and a horizontal-filer, and the kids have developed great immune systems!) Just so no one panics – everyone is well fed – just because I don’t like to cook, doesn’t mean I don’t know how to cook 😉

7. I’m sad the days will be getting shorter now. 

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.

Here are my 15 nominees:

12.-15. If you are a subscriber and reader of my blog and would like this award, then I want you to have it. There are so many people I would like to suggest – some have it, some won’t want it, and some who want it will be left off the list mostly because I can’t keep track of who has what award and who doesn’t like them. So – it there are a few for you that would like the Shine on Award – or , as I am thinking of it – the SSSM Award – just for a little while.
