So, here is the second bloggers award I am the lucky recipient of...again, from fellow blogster and writer extraordinaire Robin (to read her is to love her).

I still haven't figured out what the whole point of these keep-the-chain-going awards is. I guess its a way to generate blog traffic and get to know each other better. Anyway, here's what I'm supposed to do (the red bits are just me being loopy):

1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER!
Here's my acceptance speech: "Thank you, Robin, for this prestigious award. Little did I believe back in January when I began this BLOG that it would receive such recognition. I'd like to thank my family, especially my husband who provides fodder for so many of my posts, but most of all I'd like to thank YOU, my audience - each and every one of you!"

2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:

(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
Yeah, right! If I were to get drunk I wouldn't get as far as switching on the computer.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
Do I seem to you like a person who gets embarrassed?
(c) Write a "Soundtrack of your childhood" post.
I don't even know what this means? Youtube? 
(d) Make your next blog a 'vlog'/video blog.
Basically, you're talking to the camera about whatever.
Too high tech for me
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning before you do anything else (hair, makeup etc) and post it.
OK, It'll have to be's a photograph of my alter ego first thing in the morning if I were a purple cow.

3. Pass the award on to at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers as yourself.
Don't forget to tell them.

Here are the folks I am nominating...
(a) A Random Stranger...because he just received another award and apparently will get a pecan pie from his wife. (Always willing to help a stranger, even a random one, especially when pecan pies are involved).
(b) Indiscriminate Ideas...because he just started his blog and this might encourage him!
(c) The Dunderhead Guy...just to freak him out ;-)

Truth is, I would really like to nominate MORE but don't wish to put anybody out. If you're reading this, though, feel free to join in the FUN and consider yourself nominated!

Hi Purple.
I'm still hung up a few posts back, trying to understand Greece.
Is it true that, according to reuters, single or divorced daughters are entitled to their dead parents public service pension?
That public servants can retire on a full pension in their forties?
That public servants get paid for 13 months in a year, not 12?
I hope that this doesn't come across as hostile, I'm just trying to understand....they sound, from Aust, like overly generous welfare provisions. Do you agree?

congrats to you purple cow. it looks to me like bloging is like Fb, people talk about their family, what they do, what they eat and that kind of thing.
I just can't do that.
