Gosh, I'm so flattered, truly I am!


The lovely and talented Breda has nominated me for a Superior Scribbler award. Now I get to pass this distinction along to 5 other bloggers and also post the rules* and their link at the bottom, as I have done. There are so many great reads on my blogroll, so this is tough for me. I love you all, my darlings, but I must choose 5, so here goes, in no particular order:

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man is a superb technical writer. Featuring posts which are fact-rich and educational, his Weekend Wings series is a must-read for any aviation entoosiast. A more charming, elegant and gracious gentleman could not be found, but he also holds the distinction of having once posted an Australian mock-commercial from which I learnt of the existence of tag-nuts. My life will never be the same!

Ambulance Driver treats his audience to a rollicking ride-along in his exploits as a provider of emergency medical services. His posts are often side-splitting, often touching and never dull.

Barbara the Bad Tempered Zombie is among the most wonderful Canadians evah - I like her better even than William Shatner, and that's saying something. She's a fellow music enthusiast and writes on that topic more than any other. In fact, she's about to be a feature writer for a dead-tree format music publication, I think, and deservedly so. Rock on, Barbara!

Brigid's blog Mausers and Muffins has made me a better cook. Her posts are contemplative and as soul-nourishing as the repasts she documents there, full of poetry and absolutely stunning photography. You should try some of her recipes, which she often posts in the corresponding comment section of the post on which the photo appears. Yummy food, yummy reading.

...and finally, the erudite gentleman whose blog is The LawDog Files. In an age of hurried, crass communications, LawDog writes with style, elegance and wit which calls to mind the brilliant, genteel grace of Monsieurs Clemens and Bierce of a couple centuries back, making him one of my favorite reads. He does not update daily, nor does he throw up posts with madcap abandon like certain shoe-obsessed people I could name**, but when a new post appears on The LawDog Files, you may be assured it will be well-considered and researched as well as a delight to read.

*The Rules:Every Superior Scribbler will name 5 other Super Scribblers.If you are named you must link to the author & the name of the blog that gave you the award. Then you must display the adorable award and link to THIS POST, which explains the award. The same post also allows you to add your link. Then they will have a record of all the people who are Super Scribblers!
**I forgive myself.
