Make my day award

This is pretty cool! Heaven in Belgium just bestowed up me the "You make my day award!" along with nine other people who have pretty interesting blogs that I'll have to spend some time reading.

I send it on to the following bloggers and their journals:

A roll in the Universe. I've met Keera at Blog 365 and she's been blogging since 2002. She has a bunch of cute memes on her blog, including this post.

Sarcastic Mom has a cute blog, which is a finalist for 'best new blog' over at the 2008 Bloggies! Go and vote!
Pure Thought is an Indonesian-based blog and covers everything from daily life to love. Her post of Bali photos made my day! Although I live in a sunny country, it's also a land-locked one so I do miss the ocean.

Deep End of the Gene Pool writes about international and social posts. She has a post on the Peace Art Project in Cambodia, where guns are turned into art. I first went to Cambodia in 1994, and was profoundly moved by being in the country where many of the refugees and my friends came from. But it was very dangerous - people died and were injured in land mine injuries plus everyone had a gun. It was common to see people carrying AK-47's in the street and the worse part of that was if the person was drug. I've been going to Cambodia for meetings and visits about every year since then and have been impressed at how the country is changing. I'm glad to see a post on one of those positive changes.

I'll add to this post as I read through more blogs. But I'm not sure how far I'll get tonight. I using wireless at the only restaurant that has wireless in the whole city of Pakse. Unfortunately, I've got some inebriated friends at the next table who keep calling over to me to join them. I'm a little worried about the beer + laptop scenario!

Chanpeng, I'm glad you found my Cambodian peace art post! I checked out your blog and some of your links. Very good stuff. I linked to it so my people can meet your people!

Thank you so much. We bloggers need the occasional pat on the back ;-)
