Jana Has Passed the Thinking Blogger Award to 'You Know Who'

Jana is a homeschooling mother of four boys in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania. Lucky! She doesn't live in the armpit of the nation (ie: Philadelphia) as I do. In fact, she posted some pics and she lives out in God's Country. Pennsylvania is a most beautiful state once you get out of Philly. I would recommend visiting to anyone. Come to Philly, too. What the hell. The historic sites are kept clean and relatively safe. Lots of history here!

Thanks Jana! Now - here's the deal. I am supposed to pass this gorgeous award to 5 bloggers who cause me to think. Okay - I only know about 15 gazillion. I have to narrow it to 5. I can't give it to Mike. He'll get pissed. He is one of my first stop-offs in my nightly rounds, though. Dare I risk incurring his wrath? I think that I must. I don't think he cares about this type of thing...but maybe he's a glutton for flattery. He's good. Excellent writer, very intelligent, he's got his finger on the pulse of the planet. I'm not just B.S.ing either.

Maybe The City Troll. Yes, yes, you say he's my husband. He did get me thinking though and always has. It was lo these last 17..no..19? years that I learned to appreciate history and politics - it was The Troll that did it. Yep. Plus - he pretty much goes along with what I want - oh sure! We discuss it and all. Equality and all that. It might start to look like I'm just showing favoritism because he's my husband. Well don't worry about THAT because he pisses me off a lot, too. Some of his ideas may be offensive. Hmmm. I say that's just one great thing about America. We can be offensive all we want!

Oh! Definitely Skye must be considered. She is something else, our Skye. Smart. Beautiful. Just as sweet as can be! Plus she's in Philly, too. She's brave because to hold conservative values in the City of Brotherly Love could getcha some problems. She's a Democrat, y'know. She certainly isn't a lefty - and she certainly is articulate. Able to stab right into the heart of the matter. That's a good thing in my book. Maybe I'm concentrating too much on Philly bloggers. Hmmmm.

Perhaps I should look across the pond? Would that be smacking too much of imperialistic or fascist tendencies? Brits and all - evil just like us white Americans. But...but...A Tangled Web just has so much food for thought. In fact, it was at A Tangled Web that I discovered that the IRA is still alive and kicking. You know all the crap they spouted about laying down their arms after 9/11? Didn't happen. They're still there. Plus, the bloggers there are pro-America. I didn't think such a thing existed over in the European corner of the world. Lots of good sniveling leftist twits comment over there, too. Fun to argue with. I don't know though. The Indians Native Americans are awfully pissed at the evil Englishmen still. Took their land and stuff. Nevermind the firewater, scalpings, and now the cheap cigarettes, no taxes, and casinos. Honey - give me some tax free land with a casino on it!

Oh man! How about that Cubed?! She is something with that new education blog of hers. Cerebral, I tell ya. When you've got all cylinders firing, it's time to visit Cubed's education blog. Highly fascinating. Cubed gets it, know what I'm saying? She gets all about government education, the roots of it, the stalks of it, even the fragging chloroplasts of it.

I just can't narrow it down. Wait! My favorite gun blogger, Zendo Deb! Sheesh - if you ever have any doubts about the right to defend yourself - go on over to Deb's and get a little shot in the arm. (pun intended - ar ar!) You'll walk away just KNOWING that it's a good thing. If Mike has his finger on the pulse on the planet, Zendo Deb has her finger on the pulse of crime statistics. Lots of happy ending stories, too. Things you would NEVER hear on the news.

Dang. I just really can't pick. There are so many. SO many others. Guess I'll sleep on it a bit.

Congrats on the award.

You said: "The historic sites are kept clean and relatively safe. Lots of history here!"

I just posted something last week that says Philly is pushing for the Gay tourist dollars and has even put up "Rainbow" signs an that the historic area is known as the Gayborhood. Yuck, I don't think I would want to visit there.

But you are right, Pennsylvania is a beautiful State. I have been there many times.

Oh man! I hadn't even heard of this. The Mayor of Philly dedicated new street signs with rainbow flags permanently affixed to them in the 'Gayborhood'. Wow.

I would love to visit there in a few years because J's grandmother lives near. Like I had mentioned before I dont remember the answer but Carbondale is near you I think we had discussed.

Tweetey - PA is a gorgeous state. Philly is nice to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. LOL. When you come - we'll have to take you 'down the shore', too.

I like visiting Philly - lots of stuff to do - but I do enjoy living out in the country!

I will be heading over your way in October, so I'll stop in for that coffee ;)
