Liebster Award Nomination


You Know-ish Me … I Said Awhile Back I Was Retiring From Blogging Award Noms.  I Have.  Nothing’s Changed.  Until I Get Another One.  This Is It.

So, Here I Am Humbled By The Liebster Award Nomination – And, A Couple Others I’ve Placed On Chill For The Moment – Mumbling On …

My Sincerest Thank You And Appreciation To Christina Kyranis For The Nomination.  Check Out Christina Kyranis Relationship Coach at  Here’s A Sampling Of Her Awesomeness In Writing:

“… Sharing can be a powerful healing tool. Once we can share our feelings we can begin to make room for change. Rather than feeling controlled by our circumstances and negative emotions, we can take back our power and begin to see that we posses the ability to improve.”

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  • Share 11 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 5-11 other bloggers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  • Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post


  1. What is your greatest life lesson so far? It’s simple and juvenile … Don’t ever play with matches. Actually, small pumpkins carved into Jack O’Lanterns with a burning candle. I did once and burned the underside of a mattress when I was about 8 or 9. Also, never distrust God. I’ve done it. Didn’t end well for me. Woman’s Scorn. Avoid that at all costs.
  2. What is your favorite pass time? Writing, foremost. Also, I dance quite a bit by myself, too. I enjoy cooking – the entire process, from planning, shopping, preparing … to serving, eating, enjoying … cleaning up. All of it.
  3. What has been your greatest challenge in the past month? 1) Lip-synching Bohemian Rhapsody underwater in my bathtub. I got as far as bubbles. 2) Darting Covidiots while shopping for groceries. 3) Writing anything that I wanted to keep and publish.
  4. What is your ideal romantic relationship look like? An idyllic balance of shared conversation, laughter always, trust in everything, willingness to explore any possibility of the moment and beyond … learning from each other … and fun stuff together: cooking, traveling, sexy time and play dates together. I identify as a Sapiosexual, so intellect rates high on desirability in a prospective romantic partner.
  5. Share one thing you’ve never shared before about yourself. I’ve never donated blood. I’ve always had an aversion to needles, but slowly over the past couple years, I’ve warmed to the idea and am committed to giving one day.
  6. What’s your definition of friendship? There’s a small conclave of Good Men that I have been friends – Brothers – with since high school and college. Our bonds, kinship and comradery are unbreakable.  Far deeper than trust, honor and respect. It is unknowable in words.
  7. Which is your best tv series? There have been a few over the years: The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, This Old House.
  8. What’s your favorite food to eat? 1) A bowl of warm oatmeal prepared with fresh berries, pepitas, chia seeds, ground flax, hemp hearts and Greek yoghurt. 2) Pasta (any style) 3) Fruit
  9. Chocolate or vanilla? Together, in a soft swirl cone.  I believe in Harmony.  Flavors blended.
  10. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? A balance of both; in certain groups, especially amongst old friends, family, and in social events, I tend to be more of an extrovert. Privately, or with new or unfamiliar company, I may lean toward introvert. I’m happy alone. Content in public.
  11. What are you most afraid of? Sudden death or dying alone in my sleep. I want to see it. Know it. Not be cheated out of it. I think it’s only fair. And, talk to God in my last moments.


  1. According to, my Spit-Test DNA suggests I’m a Mixed Bag of Tricks: primarily Italian, Polish and Ukrainian, but with enough variety – Scandinavian, French, North African, Iberian, Middle Eastern to claim World Citizen Status.
  2. I’m a Pacifist.  
  3. I’m a Sapiosexual.
  4. I’m a Flexitarian/Reducetarian.
  5. I’m a Hypo-Christian.
  6. I’m Happy.
  7. I’ve Discovered My True Purpose In Life
  8. I’ve Never Acted My Age.
  9. I’m presently in between Dilemmas and Conundrums.
  10. I love Linen.
  11. I like Cats and Dogs equally, but not always in that order.

    Michael: Please allow me to share this as thoughts that come to mind as I see all the wonderful expressions out here: Be safe everyone. maintain the enthusiasm and continue to encourage and support one another. I pray for an increase in views, followers, likes and comments for everyone who is investing their heart into creating posts that uplift, inspire, educate and build people. Keep it up all you wonderful people. and don’t slack off when the going gets tough or the followers seem far away, rome was not built in a single day it is said, so keep pushing those posts out, only make sure your heart agrees with what you are sending out into the world out there…..these are seeds you are sowing and will bear fruit and come back multiplied….put out nothing but your best and the best will come back to you….anyone agree?

    I too love oatmeal but without anything extra added. Ozark is the best! I’m too a mixture of intro and extrovert it’s called ambivert. Loved all your responses, especially the one with blended vanilla and chocolate 💕💕

    Congratulations Michael! I’ve learned more about you right here, than all your Blogs I’ve read. All of your answers are completely relatable, but I especially admire the one about men friends you call, ‘Brothers’. My daughter and I are watching, “The Unit”, and those men are not related at all, but they are brothers. They would kill for one another.

    Enjoy Ozark! One of my all-time faves! Thank you for the nomination. I’m honored and humbled. ❤

    Thank you Michael! I’m humbled and honored. I also want to say I love your group of friends. That’s the same for me as well, most of my girlfriends are from all the way back in time. My best friend actually bit me when we met. I think she was 3! Haha! Anyway, also love fact #8.. the oversharing part. Made me laugh because I’m guilty too. I often post and then think :oh wow, T.M.I.!!!: It is what it is.Thank you again, I’ll be working on this today YAY.

      Thank you, LaShawn. If I had written this 10-15 years ago, it may have been quite different. I suppose that’s due to spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth. We never stop growing. Always appreciate your comments and sharing your faith in God. Blessings. 🙏
