You’re ALL awesome!
Do I tell you that enough? I hope so! A great big THANK YOU to each and every one of you who follows, likes, comments or simply takes an anonymous tour through my posts. You’re all awesome and worthy of awards, but, alas, rules are rules. In these nominations I’m exempting blogs that are awards-free. Without further ado…

Please note that the book High Fidelity does not factor here — Joe doesn’t like it and maintains that it still doesn’t give any proper answers.
