I am trying to do with Shady Dell Music & Memories!
It is a great honor to receive this award and I encourage everyone to visit
and support Katia's nostalgic blog Velvet and Old Laces.
Now I have an award of my own that I would like to give to three of my blogger friends. It is the Nice Matters Award.
The Nice Matters Award is intended for bloggers who are genuinely nice people - blog friends who care about and inspire good feelings in others, lend their support to others, and are a positive influence on the blogging community.

Tales from a Loser, Belle, a former California girl, shares a multitude of stories about her life and her family. Her Tales go beyond that to include a wide variety
of interesting topics. What I like most about Tales from a Loser is that it's a friendly place. Belle is a gracious hostess who goes out of her way to make visitors feel welcome. She does a great job of replying to comments posted on her blog and she repays the kindness by posting intelligent comments on the blogs of others. The only quarrel I could possibly have with Belle Unruh is the name she chose for her site because in my book Belle is a real winner.
the blogging world.
Odie maintains a positive attitude and always has something interesting, kind and supportive to say when he posts on my blog and others.
One can get a sense of Odie's nature by reading his About Me notes: "I am a listener and get real enjoyment out of helping people or sharing things I have learned or created..." In a blogosphere filled with cynical, self-absorbed ranters Odie's sincerity and enthusiasm are a breath of fresh air! Please visit and support Odie's blog The Simple Life.
Nice really does matter and Katia, Belle and Odie are three of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. They are part of the solution!
