Well, I've been preparing a speech for this very moment, so bear with me as I try to get through it. First, I want to thank Amanda for awarding me and my Blog. I would be without the "E" if it wasn't for her. I also want to thank all my readers, those that comment and those that lurk...I love you just the same. I especially want to mention all my family that has joined me by starting a blog, that was the whole reason I started myself...to keep closer contact with them (you can visit them all by clicking on their names to the right). Since moving away, this is the closest I've felt to each of them...and I love it. I know I could post a little more often, or so I've been told, but I like to keep my readers in suspense. There's nothing like a good surprise. Don't worry, now that I've made it big by receiving this noble award, I won't forget the little people...I want to thank Amanda and the Blogging Academy again...I wouldn't be here without you.
