Tabor said...

Thank you once again dear blogger. I know when you do your POTW I will spend much more time reading and far less cleaning this house, as I had planned.

Oh Hilary! Thank you so very, very much; it is a great honor to be included in your Posts of the Week selection. (Although many times I feel that your own posts should have won the award!)
I will echo others and say how very much we appreciate your commitment to the POTW project. I cannot begin to imagine how much time you spend just reading...and I am grateful you chose, at some point, to read mine!

Thank you so much Hilary. You are amazing to do this every week.

Maggie said...

Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm still learning to use my camera and never quite know how things will come out until I find myself in Photoshop. Stay warm now.

Land of shimp said...

Crap. No, not about the posts, Hilary! They are great as always.

To whomever recommended the post about the Croatian Culinary student: Man, I'm going to need a translation of the instructions for posting a comment. I've got a translation program for Croatian to English, but I'm not doing something right.

I've been putting in my blogger id and password, and lost my comment four times (I keep losing text because I have to copy the Croatian into the translation).

So here's what I'm asking: Is it asking for a blogger id and password, or something else? I'd just keep trying until I puzzled it out, but clearly, I'm doing something flat out wrong, as the window just keeps eating my text.

Eddie Bluelights said...

Thanks Hilary - I am surprised and highly honoured. I couldn't have done it without the snow LOL.
Will try to see the others tonight ~ Eddie x

Fat, frumpy and fifty... said...

a very eclectic mix Hilary! wonderful!!

Land of shimp said...

Got it! To anyone else struggling with the Croatian translation: Choose the second posting option, and type in your screenname in box above that. It's the anon option, but you can put your name with it.

I've never tried to translate Croatian before, and clearly am not good at it :-)

Daryl said...

Great list...! It's always fun to find new blogs that are recommended. I'm going to check them out right now.

Might I add, I think everyone's blog is special, and everyone's post is a post of the week (day, month, year). :-)

Tea said...

Thank you Hilary!!! :)

Michele J said...

Thanx Hilary. I am slowly getting back into blogging because of my epilepsy attacks in the past year; your post is a great way to start the New Year off. Blu is my little shinning star when the skies are dark and him being mentioned here made me smile. =)
