The Liebster Award

I would like to thank Sarah and Andrew (Two Tickets For...) for the award.

As per the rules, I need to post 11 things about myself, answer the 11 questions from Sarah and Andrew, post 11 questions for my nominees and finally post a link to each of my nominees.  So here we go….

11 things about myself
  1. I love the Sherlock Holmes canon by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. My dream is to visit the Sherlock Holmes museum in London.
  2. I like trying out new authors. The joy of discovery is something I look forward to all the time.
  3. I am learning to be more appreciative of other’s thoughts and respect them more with each passing day. I strongly believe that the biggest room in the world is the one for self-improvement.
  4. I have tried my hand at cooking and the results have not been particularly delicious. They were edible though!
  5. I love Grizzly Bears and Mountain Gorillas. I like Nature in general and these 2 are my favorites.
  6. Some of the favorite places I have visited so far are the Yellowstone Park and the Columbus Zoo.

    1. You are doing an excellent job with your blog and this award is my way of saying Thank You !

  2. Great answers, B2B! Glen Garry Glen Ross is a movie that we've always meant to rent (back when we lived in Michigan and didn't have Netflix yet) or get from Netflix now. Also, Sarah's most definitely looking forward to The Hobbit as well (but isn't too happy that Jackson's turning it into a trilogy).

    Keep up the good work!!!
