It is award time once again. Time to pass on the Kreativ Blogger Award to those bloggers who are Kreativ in their endeavors to be the best bloggers in the bloggersphere. I received this award today from a very good friend and even more talented writer, the owner of the blog Work The DreamMs. DanLrene. I know of no other who is as warm, loving, and intelligent as Ms. DanLrene. Whenever she publishes a post, I am there to read what she has to say.


I find it a high honor when my peers in writing think my writing is worthy of an award. I say thank you from my heart. Thank you Ms. DanLrene.

Please stop by and visit these nominees….that is the real purpose of this award. I have received The Kreativ Blogger Award before, but I love accepting awards because it allows me the task of passing the award on to others, letting them know the hard work of opening up your emotions and revealing yourself is much appreciated.

4). sorealtonight

5). IncidentalLearner

6). Craig Hill

9). misty maples farm

I can’t leave comments on blogs, for some reason WordPress thinks I am a big ole square can of potted meat (Spam), and my comments go straight to the spam folder of blog sites, so hopefully these nominees will read this posting on my blog, or if you fellow bloggers could be so kind as to notify my 11 nominees that they have been chosen. I’d be eternally grateful.

Yes, I know I was supposed to nominate 7….I can’t count. Please visit the blogs/sites of these Kreativ Blogger Award winners…spread the love & pay it forward. Thank you.

What has Obama done?  What happened to HOPE? Where has he been the last couple of years? How is a nation to survive? Where is this guy taking America?  Is there anything that this President has contributed to the great institution called America? Are average citizens safe in this country? How are we to get good leadership these days?   Is Obama out to make me look bad?  What?  What?  What?  Why?  Why?  Why?

These questions and more will be discussed in an Okieprogressive segment called:  Talking the President’s Progressive Achievements.

Segment 6:  Returning Heroes and Wounded Warrior Tax Credits

On November 21, 2011, the President signed into law two new tax credits:

It is my mission to offer the hand full of followers and readers of this blog, any and everything to do with ICE CREAM!!!! Stop by the blog: “Things We Make”….and make this today!!!

Following some testing, tasting and general gluttony I am pleased to introduce you to this Mocha Fudge Ice Cream.

If you read My First Ice Cream post you will know that I was not completely happy with my results from the “Best ever chocolate ice cream” recipe by Cenk Cafe Fernando. Several people who made it ended up with the same super thick texture, so I deduced that Turkish corn starch must be a different beast to British cornflour.

I loved the concept of a no egg, no-ice-cream-maker recipe though, so I decided I needed to create a new version by playing with the quantities, timings and ingredients. Don’t get me wrong, this is still no ordinary ice cream, it’s kind of a fudgy mocha ice.

Ed says I should call it Focha.

It scoops straight from the freezer and an espresso cupful is more than enough for…

This is a very straight to the point article, from the mind of a mother, a parent, a human being with love and intelligence. Everything Rush Limbaugh is not. I like “The BlueBattingHelmet” mostly because I grew up in Chicago listening to Ron santo, Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, Ron Hundley, & Glen Beckett play ball on the Northside for the Cubs.

It’s a typical Saturday morning, and around my house that means ice skating. My older daughter had a lesson with a coach at one local skating rink, and my younger daughter had another lesson at another rink. It’s a good thing that we have two cars and two drivers to acommodate them.

After I drove my little one to her practice, paid her coach, tied up her skates, and made sure she got onto the ice OK, I stood and watched her for a few minutes. I was bursting inside with my feelings of pride and love for her. Earlier in my life, before I had kids of my own, I would have considered such thoughts sappy and suspect in some way. But now, having crossed over to the other side, I completely understand them. That’s just how it works.

After leaving the ice rink area, I came upon a…
