VBA Rules

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

It seems appropriate to follow the rules associated with this nomination and so I will attempt to fulfill those obligations the best I can at the moment:
Joe Quatrone Jr. nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award. I say thank you, but for more than one reason. The nomination humbles me, and I receive it with gratitude. Next, it forced me to look a some technology I hadn’t got to yet, namely adding a link to his blog on my blog. I did figure it out, and that opens many new possibilities. It opens new ways to find bloggers I still had not found.
I do not include a list of bloggers because I am simply too new to have digested enough blogs to act fairly. So I defer this obligation for the present time, but will get back to it as time and experience provide me with the resources to do so.
Some things about me other than what you find on my page “About”:

  1. God has me in “monastery mode”, in a quiet place of Spirit ;
  2. I now work in security on shifts that accommodate this mode, thank you God;
  3. While I served as a pastor, my call as a prophet has only recently overwhelmed me;
  4. Gardening on our half-acre lot in town produces a lot of food and savings;
  5. This morning we had breakfast in our screen tent for the first time this year;
  6. Science fiction movies and shows provide an escape for me, but since we have not had television reception for nearly two years, my sci-fi comes from DVD’s and videos now;
  7. For our thirty-fifth wedding anniversary we are going to Kentucky to the National Quartet Convention (really big deal!).
