LadyFi said...

Lots of lovely posts to check out this week! Thanks.

Lydia said...

Um..... I posted 17 seconds of pure bliss about 14 hours before "17 Seconds of Pure Joy" was posted. Ironic or what? That little kitten video is going viral on the internet and for good reason. As I said in my post it's become my favorite youtube video (and I can't imagine what could along that would take it off that pedestal!).

I'll go visit the others now.

Zuzana said...

You are doing so well with this task Hilary.;) The only downside is that you never seem to be included in the nominations.;)
Congratulations to everyone mentioned.;)

one day maybe I will write a worthy post and will be the bride, no longer the bridesmaid here...

Unknown said...

Also congrats to everyone, and I agee with Protege, you're doing such a grand job Hilary! David will be so proud of you.

Boozy Tooth said...

Oh my gosh! Hilary!

I just got a congratulations comment for being mentioned as a POTW runner up and I almost fainted. I ran right over to see for myself. Wow! I'm delighted and want to thank you so much for recognizing my silly little post. It was fun to write.

Now that my head is all swelled, I may never be the same again.

Thanks again! You made my day!


Mental P Mama said...

Oh my! Thank you, and I am quite flattered. This is fine company, indeed!

Dianne said...

Daryl's 'Waiting' post is astounding
I told her it was photo journalism at its best

Hello Hilary, I just visited a few of your recommended posts. Keep up your good "reporting!" :)

Land of shimp said...

Oh this week I managed to do it in the right order! Rather than comment here first, I went and read the blog posts while I had the links readily available.

I'm so glad I did. Many of them made me smile, and I'm now in a positively marvelous mood.

Thank you all so much for adding such a nice light to the day.

Michael said...

Tom said...


I'm fairly busy at work and couldn't figure out why I suddenly got a flurry of emails with comments from my blog, then realised you were kind enough to mention my blog in your post.

Thank you for the pleasant surprise and thanks to those who took the time to visit my own rather humble blog and for the very kind comments!


Maria said...

Hilary, from one comment on my blog I got to know that my entry was recommended here, on your blog, so I made some inquiry about it and found Kathleen's recommendation here. Wow, that has never happened to me ... until now! Thank you both, you made my day. :-) Petra

Mr London Street said...

Lots of familiar faces here as always. If you feel like giving it to something a bit different you could consider this superb post. Hope you like it.

Hilary said...

• Petra thanks for stopping by to comment. When Kathleen says to check out a blog, I listen. :)

• Thanks, Mr. London Street. I've noted the addie and will check it out soon. Thanks for the recommendation. :)

Louise said...

Thanks, Hilary! Of course I'm late getting here. (Maybe I could just dump everything else in my life to keep up with blogging!) I really appreciate it, though I knew before now because you sent some lovely people my way!

Hilary said...

Thanks, Louise. I'm glad you're pleased. :)
