I was given this blog award by Wipneus , Reisiger and also by Eilandkind which I really appreciate as blogger friends. I’ve thought to spoil you all with two pictures from the Lake District. This fell/mountain on the top pic is called..and I hope I’m right…”Mellbreak”. I do apologise…when I followed my notes I’ve made, I realised that fell is called Carling Knott and it’s the very same Carling Knott that we climbed the day before our return…the only complete day without rain! during our stay. It’s about 320 m – comparing to Mount Aux Sources in South Africa (in the Drakensberg mountains) which I climbed when I was 15 and which is about 4300m! It’s very close to Mockerkin where we stayed and from where I took the picture, it’s about 1/4 mile to Loweswater, the quietest Lake of all the lakes in the Lake District. You can see part of Loweswater on the picture!
Secondly…I’ve only recently started reading Little Indian’s blog and I really enjoy reading his blog, please take a look at the wonderful writing and pics! Then, if you enjoy a good mix of humour, some chess, life and a bit of the current “politics” of America…jump into Ray’s blog…I do enjoy all his posts and he always has something interesting on his blog. Then I want to pass it on to The7new7ramanujan who’s blog I do enjoy too! He’s a student and sometimes shares the funny side of student life with us. I’ve also been reading Norrbu’s blog for quite a while and I love his blog too! Sometimes the entries are just “short and sweet”, but it says a lot…if you know what I mean! And lastly … Tony! He’s also one of my chess friends on the chess site and he lives near Bristol and makes me laugh a lot when we play chess, with his posts he sometimes puts a smile on my face too! He’s not afraid to call a spade a spade on his blog! and I like that about him. Well done to you all…I’ve decided to choose mainly English bloggers, as my Afrikaans-blogger friends have received this award and thought to introduce my English blogger-friends too. If you feel to pass this award on to other bloggers, feel free to do so. Wow! I managed to dig up at least 6 blogs! think I need to dig a bit deeper! —I’ve found my 7th blogger-friend!… Jasper! His blog is an Afrikaans blog, so all you people looking for somebody that loves poetry, music – composing his own songs! – and also some wonderful IT-stuff and ideas, then Jasper is your very next stop! enjoy! Thanks Jasper for all your IT-links and you always show us wonderful software to be downloaded for free!
