This made my day

I have been nominated for a Reader's Appreciation Award .. not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds nice, and I appreciate it.  Thank you.

I was nominated by the blogger who writes "Daily Returns."  http://dailyreturns.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/1886/

James writes about Royal Musings. " I have long had an interest in monarchy. This blog is written by Marlene Eilers Koenig, a longtime author and researcher in the area of royalty."

 Recipients of the award are asked to:
  1. Identify their award and who gave it to them.
  2. Post the logo on their blog.
  3. Share 7 (?) items about themselves.
  4. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers to receive this award, and notify them on their blog.
I have identified the blogger and the award.  I have posted the logo.  Now I have to share seven things about me:  I love baseball (and thrilled about the current status of my team, the Washington Nationals (original season ticket holder), I love cats and dogs.  London is my favorite place for a vacation..  Shrimp is my favorite food.  Iceland is my second favorite place for a vacation.

My five candidates are:

Royal Romania http://royalromania.wordpress.com/  Diana Mandache, who lives in Bucharest, knows more about the history of the Romanian royal family than anyone I know ....

The Cross of Laeken  http://crossoflaeken.blogspot.com/  Good historical pieces about the Belgian royals, especially Queen Astrid

Royal Correspondent http://royalcorrespondent.com/  Plenty of royal news coverage with a touch of snark. 

Lutheran Confessions http://lutheranconfessions.blogspot.com/  This Pastor rocks. For me - Lutheran - the one true faith, although I accept that others have the same view of their church!

Luxembourg http://lux-arazzi.blogspot.com/  Have no idea who runs this blog, but they have a keen sense of where those Luxembourg royals are  ... most of the time. 

Now I think I need to tell these bloggers too ... Surprise!
