Sunday post -- Award Day again -- Oh Happy Day!

Scripture of the Week:
"Rule over ... every living creature that moves on the ground" Genesis 1:28**

Saturday was hair cutting day for Katrin. Mrs. Jim is learning pretty good using on-line videos and the video that came with her clipper set (andis).

It all came out good, no nicks, cuts, or scraps. And Katrin didn't bite her either.

Word of the Day: Urban Dictionary, October 04: manicorn

a mythical male creature who is successful (read: pursuing his passion and can pay his electric bills/rent), funny, chivalrous, masculine (read: not chauvinistic), adventurous, artistic (read: not suicidal).

JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO PLACE: One Single impression (link)


I received this award from my friend Bob of The Diary Of An English Gardener and so I am now going to pass it on to a few other brilliant blog owners I love to visit.

I'm not to much into awards but they are nice to get and really do make you feel good about your blogging. Even if everything said about you might not be completely true.

The rules for this award are:

* The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
* Link to the person you received your award from.
* Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
* Put links to those blogs on yours.
* Leave a message on the blogs of the people you have nominated.

I`m nominating the following people, who have great (brilliant--English here) blogs with a bit of flattery:

Rachel: The very first reader that I know about. Rachel left the first comment on my blog, I really appreciated that comment. I like best Rachel's Sunday morning church sign posts which I try to imitate every once in a while. Mrs. Jim and I met Rachel at Blogstock '08 this summer.

Cliff Morrow: He was the second that I know of to read my blog. At least he also left the second comment. Cliff and friend, Ralph, were the organizers of the Blogstock '08 we attended this summer. It was great, thirteen of us bloggers and our families and friends all go together in Cliff's home in the Nebraska cornfields.

Doug: He stimulates my thinking every day with a word which often I am not familiar with. We as readers are encouraged to write a clever note in a comment about this word or the definitions he used. I copied this feature to some extent with my current Word of the Day. His weekend posts are literary in nature and have some very interesting reading. Besides all that he has a nice beagle dog like I do.

Janell: A blogging friend who is also a hard working lady holding down a full-time job. She has horses and just recently went on a several day trail ride. I was fortunate to have met Janell at Blogstock '08.

Felisol: She is my blogging friend from Norway. Felisol writes a very nice journal entry about once or twice a month and participates in Ruby Red Tuesday posts (as do Janell and myself). Her posts are very educational as well as interesting. Beside that, she and hubby, Gunnar, have volunteered to drive Mrs. Jim and me all over Norway when we decide to travel there.

Terry: Terry remembers the birthdays and anniversary of everyone she knows who blogs as well as her family members. She is very kind to Adi, Amber, and Katrin as well. Terry helps immensely with her parents-in law as well. Terry lives in Canada.

Lori: I love to read Lori's blog. She is so full of ambition and does so many different things, work, church, family, neighbors, and on and on. I would be tired by noon to be on her schedule. Lori didn't slow down much even when she has been on some very powerful medicine.

Putz: Mr. Putz doesn't comment very often on this blog but is a regular reader. He is also a regular reader over at my Ask Dr. Jim (blog). He is very faithful and writes a comment on almost every entry I write there.

I have quite a few other loyal readers on my JIM'S LITTLE PHOTO PLACE blog but since this award was made on this blog I will make the award to readers of this one.

That was hard, cutting off at seven. One might not carry through with this so I did eight names. I hope Bob doesn't care.

Be sure to check these bloggers out, just click on the names to get to their blogs.

Every one on my 'Blogs I Read' list are deserving. If you guys get hard up for seven, just come on over and pick one of the ones I left behind.

What Bob said about me in my recommendation for this award:
"Jim & faithful hound Adi - who have an interesting blog of everyday stuff that happens in their lives"

***Ask Dr. Jim (blog) is having about a dozen clicks a day now. About half come from Google initiated by persons seeking answers to their questions. I started this blog in a not very serious vein but it has escalated to being somewhat helpful. Top ten popular requests are listed below.***

**Genesis 1:27-28 (NIV)

27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

*** Ask Dr. Jim (blog) stats:
10. Everybody hates me
9. How do people disappear?
8. Cat problem, He is peeing on the furniture
7. My wife always has to be right
6. Why do Tigers eat/what do they eat?
5. Do earlobes grow with aging? (and what to do about it)
4. (Car) idler pulley bearings/stupid wife
3. My wife is always late
2. Why do women have to shave their armpits (woman wants to be hairy)
1. Ask Dr. Jim (blog) just for the looking and reading, not Googled to my blog

Little Miss Katrin looks like she is having a rough day...
Hey, thanks, Jim. Willie defintely helps with the award-gettin'. The tricked-out turtle series was funny. I miss B.C.
Congrats to all the award winners!

I had no idea there was a World Teachers Day. I feel special.
Jim, our net meets every Wednesday night at 9:00pm. on 147.42 frequency. Come on by and say "hello". We are working to grow our HRO's. We have two Tech classes set for Oct. and Nov. Several of our group have purchased radios in the last week and I am watching and IC-208h on Ebay, so that I can have one in my car. We have learned from our hurricane experiences and are working to make our Group better and more prepared for the next emergency.

TF and I are out of debt except for the house. We only charge what we can pay off at the end of the month.
First of all I'd like to thank everyone who has made this possible. But most of all I'd like to thank the little people. Wait! To me, almost everyone is a little people.
Thanks Jim, you're too kind.
Katrin looks beautiful! Does Mrs. Jim take walk-ins, or would I need to make an apointment? I really need a haircut!

Thank you for mentioning me in your award list. I know I don't deserve it - you're just being nice.
I have read your blog from time to time but have never left a comment. I finally got started on my own blog. I know Cliff and Janell is married to my cousin. Certainly looks like you love your animals. I have a boxer- Rocky is his name!
Hey Jim, Has Mrs Jim had a practice with her clippers on you yet? If so how about a picture? Bob.
I've never heard of a manicorn.
Now I have thanks to you.

Mrs. Jim did a fine job on Katrin's lovely locks.


Have a good week, Jim.
Make sure the Jim Bunch eats well.

Dear Mr. Jim
I have finally got around to thanking you again for making me a winner. In my whole life I have never been a winner except four times; the day I was saved, June 27 1967, the day I met Bernie, July 1970 and the two times that you have picked me. How lucky can one person be and just to think that I am on the same list as my beloved Felisol!!
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I I think that Adi put you up to this Grampa Jim. She is such a darling!!
Give Katrin and "Marmalade"[Amber] a hug from me will ya'?...Love Terry
Hi Jim ~~ Congrats on your award and the ones you passed it to. My son John clips his two little dogs too. Thanks for the congrats on the birth of Chloe Maree - they are home (in Q'ld) and doing well.
My second husband used to sing "You are my Sunshine" to me. We only had 6 years together before he died. Didn't know it was the Kansas state song. Take care, my friend, Regards, Merle.
Lucy-Maude took one look at all the barber shop gear, and decided she was very fortunate to have short hair! We both thought that Katrin's a cutie, though. ~ Deb
