Liebster Award

“[T]his blog definitely qualifies as a little bit of lovely,” writes the Lady of Rains. I do not normally accept blog awards, but she has been my muse on more than one occasion. For this reason, I feel compelled to appreciate her charming sentiment.

The price of this honor is that I must pass it on, which should not be a problem considering the number of excellent blogs available. There are a few light “obligations” that come with this award that I must honor and list as:

  1. I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks of agriculture as a technology. Now I’m off to read a few of your nominees’ blogs as I don’t think that they are all on my current read-this-blog list.

  2. Thank you, gentle sir. Having no idea of such things, I tried looking up Liebster Award in my browser. Liebster apparently means “beloved” or “dearest” in German. Most say it is for new or lightly recognized blogs, and many others use the number 5 rather than 11. In any case, thank you for the recognition, a pleasant surprise beginning the new year.

  3. Actually, I received this award about a year ago. I believe it was 5 then. It was passed to me as 11 this year. I do not know who increased it, but it wasn’t me. Nevertheless, keep up the good work!
