Now Award Free


I have been horrible about completing the kind Nominations that have been given to me during the last several months.  I must apologize for this.  I do appreciate the nominations!  I really do!  I find that I no longer have the time to keep up with them.  I have thought about this for some time and have decided that I must make my blog an Award Free blog.

My page that used to say Awards & Badges now says Award Free Blog.

Please pass along that nomination to someone else.  The nominations are a great way for a new blogger to get their feet wet and to expand readership.  They are also a wonderful way that the community here expresses gratitude.

So THANK YOU, THANK YOU for each of the amazing nominations I have received!!

As always, thanks for playing! Penny ❤

Desert Island Music


I want to thank Robin at Robin’s Nest https://therobinsnest2017.com/ for tagging me for this post.  Here is Robin’s post:  https://therobinsnest2017.com/2017/07/07/desert-island-discs-blog-tag/

I’m going to change things up a bit though.  Robin is a sweetheart to nominate me for this but I’m afraid that my choice in albums would be quite Old School.  I have a feeling that I am a year or two older than Robin is! 🙂

It has been a long time since I bought an album.  In fact, when I moved this last time, I never even bothered unpacking my CDs or my stereo.  The stereo is out in the garage and the CDs are still in a cardboard box in the spare room.

Most of the time I listen to Internet Radio; either Pandora or Accu Radio.  I bounce around in what I listen to a great deal.  I listen to everything from Country, to Lite Rock, to Smooth Jazz, to Oldies.

I get tired of the same old thing and although I do have favorites, I crave hearing new music.

Here are the Robin’s rules:

If you are cast away on a desert island:

  • You can bring 5 albums – what are they?
  • You can bring one book – which is it? You are provided with a Bible/ other religious text if you want it, as well as the Complete Works of Shakespeare. No series!
  • You can have one luxury item (it has to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island) – what is it?

So, in light of my eclectic tastes and listening habits, these are the rules I have come up with:

  •  Name 5 songs you love and why they are so special to you.
  • What is/are the book, writings or story that you read as a child and loved that would surprise some people?
  • What is the one luxury item you have in your life now that you feel you couldn’t do without?
