Blogger Miss Marzipan has been so kind to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, and all the best for your fine blog in 2013!
Here are the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:
1. In a post on your blog, nominate 10 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award; and link to them. 2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award. 3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog. 4. In the same post, share 10 completely random pieces of information about yourself. 5. In the same post, include this set of rules. 6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
I have nominated the following 10 blogs:
1. Daina’s Book
3. MARVA SEATON LIFE LINE & SURVIVAL BLOG
4. arjun bagga
5. Hopping Across Cultures
6. Mindful Drawing ~ Paula Kuitenbrouwer
7. Wallpaper Tadka
9. Ralphie´s Portal
10. Dean J. Baker – Poetry, and prose poems
And here are ten random pieces of information about myself:
1. Today, two ring-necked parakeets flew up from the ground, just a few meter in front of me.
2. I have seen ring-necked parakeets in their native Gambia.
3. I have seen thousands of them flying to trees to spend the night.
4. I see them often opposite my window.
5. This morning, I saw geese in a meadow from the train. Not sure whether they were gray leg geese or white-fronted geese.
6. Often, a robin sings near my window.
7. It also sings in winter. Sometimes, during the night.
8. The weather is fairly good today, but is expected to worsen later in the week.
9. An osprey flies in my living room. Not a real one, but a cardboard life-size mobile.
10. It has a (cardboard) trout in its claws. It reminds me of the jungle river in Suriname on 12 February 2009. I quote from my blog then:
