So there you go those are the rules and the name of the game.


The blogs listed below possibly have at one time or another bestowed and/or received an award from me. Some responded with the utmost gratitude, some do not venture into the award arena and some simply did not respond. Those of you who enjoy playing I look forward to your own post and those of you who chose not to that is okay, too. I have fulfilled my desire to let you know how deserving you truly are and how much you mean to me.

For those of you who want to play, the ball is in your court!

[BTW If you want to play and I have somehow missed you, I hang my head shamefully but will raise it proudly and promptly add you to the list!]

  1. Dear Rosemary, I apologize for the delay in thanking you for this wonderful award! I am very happy to accept it, and I consider myself in very good company! Thank you again, and God bless you!

  2. Like Deirdre, I consider myself in good company too and I am honored. Thank you, Rosemary. I hope you are resting sufficiently.

  3. Rosemary, just one thing, you have the link to my site misspelled. it is Thank you again!

  4. Hello and a happy holiday season to you and yours, Mamie! I've never been to Cork, and now I want to go... I did make it to Dublin and Wexford, many years ago (1984) as a college student abroad. My mother's family is Irish, from Galway, and I'm told my birth mother had Irish ancestry as well--which makes me part of the Irish diaspora that never quite loses its link with the auld sod. Always enjoy your posts about Ireland. :)

  5. Your site is very nice and i am really impressed but there is a very nice movie site and
