Beach Girl's Thinking Blog Award

I owe thanks to Mr. Minority as posted in Mr M Receives a Thinking Blog Award as well as another blogger who will undoubtedly beat me about the head and shoulders for not linking to his blog. Please, beat away and then I can make amends.

The award is such an honor. We type away out here in the hinter-ethers of the net and we know from our readers that we are being read and "heard". For that we are all grateful. We would all like a "larger" voice and if we are really lucky, our readers go on to link to our blog and/or link to respective posts. All of these acts of generosity on the part of our readers encourage us - we would rant anyway, just really encouraging to know that our rantings are being heard. "If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear, does it make a sound?"

I want to thank Mr. Minority for awarding me this honor and for his patience in trying to help me post the logo/award icon.

The folks whom I awarded as making me think are:

Adversus/A Western Heart - has several writers and each one will give you something to think about. Also, very good in that there are British as well as perspectives from "down under" to help us Yanks broaden our horizons.

Eternity Road - always clear-thinking here

Gates of Vienna - the place to be to learn what we face in the Jihad Islamist movement to "conquer" the world.

Mr. Minority - Mr. M is where I check in every Sunday evening to get my "sense of proportion, ie, sense of humor" fix for the week. I know Mr. M nominated me but I had nominated him earlier and I'm sure he didn't know it as I didn't follow the "rules."

Voice of the Pacific - Sonnabend has a totally refreshing and irreverent way of ripping all of our knickers. He is funny; he is direct - nobody can evey accuse Sonnabend of diplomacy, thank goodness. He also has a blog radio commentary and he knows how to pin back the ears of those who fall under his microscope!

I know we are to name five but I also want to mention Steve's Hodgepodge. Steve is keyed into the Center for Vigilant Freedom/the 910 Group and he is working to get we bloggers of "lesser" fame together the end of May.

Here are the Official Participation Rules:

1, If, and only if you get tagged, write a post with links to the 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional, Proudly display the "Thinking Blogger Award" with a link to the post that you wrote.

Now, let's see if I can follow all of the instructions.

My thanks to Faultline USA for helping me with blogrolling.com. I'm just slow with these "technical" aspects.

To all the Thinking Bloggers - keep the cobwebs out and the sparkling insight in!

Hi Beach Girl,

Love the idea of having awards. I should introduce it for Finnish blogs, too.

I recently promised to write something about Finland. I surely took my time, but here was so much to write about. Here you go: Multicultural Madness in Finland.
