Brothers Campfire Mystery Blogger Award

As I journey in the blogging experience, I am pleased to have made the acquaintance of Mia. She completes her school work and posts it online. She is skilled in Karate and it is no wonder that she calls herself Ninja Warrior!

I was shocked and humbled when she honored me with the Mystery Blogger Award several days ago! Check out her awesome homework assignments and be sure to leave well deserved likes!

Thank you Mia for the Nomination!

While I am here, I would like to thank several others who can consider themselves nominees.

(Please nominate others as you see fit)

1.I would like to thank  Herb Thiel for fixing a concern with SSL certificates I had on several browsers. His rates our reasonable and his staff are very understanding! If you need website help, he is the go to guy.

1.I would also like to recognize and thank The MTaggartWriter and others for alerting me that there was a concern in viewing my site. I really enjoy his poetry.

1.No Passing Fancy has been an encouraging voice all the way in South Africa. I appreciate it! I appreciate your independence of thought as well. You are strong and resilient!

1.A.S. from My Bubble is an excellent writer and she takes the time to encourage others. One of my favorite stories is The Big Blue Umbrella

Thank you, friend. 

Yes, they are all listed as number one. They deserve it!

Mia had a few questions for me that I am happy to answer.

1. What language do you want to learn?

Thanks for the questions, Mia! I am feverishly trying to learn Spanish.

2. Do you love dogs?

Mia, I have the best Australian Shepherd anyone could ever ask for!

Here is a quick video of my dog, Bubbles!

3. Do you eat sushi?

Cold rolled or FutoMaki Sushi is my favorite! 

I think I eat it for the generous amounts of wasabi I add to every bite. 

4. Are you subscribed to me?

Absolutely! Isn’t everyone?

5. Give out a rating of 1-10 of me.


Thanks Mia!

I have a few questions for my nominees as well. As my nominees are amongst the most interesting and intellectual in the world, they are a little tougher. 

FYI, I found these questions online.

( if you, the reader would like to chime in, leave a comment and we will discuss it!)

1.The poet John Keats once wrote (in his poem “Ode on a Grecian Urn”),

Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all

Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

By contrast, Plato (in The Republic) warns of poetry’s power to make a falsehood seem true, by beautifying it.

What, then, is the relationship between beauty, as achieved by the artist, and truth?

2.Very few paintings by Norman Rockwell hang in the great museums. Would you rate his art as highly as you do the art of Rembrandt, Valazquez, and other old masters? Why or why not?

3.World records in certain track events–such as the pole vault, javelin throw, and marathon run–have improved dramatically over the last hundred years. What accounts for that fact?

4.Is there intelligent life elsewhere in the universe?

5. According to Lord Acton, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Comment, taking a historical perspective.

Thanks again for the nomination, Mia!
