Thanks for the award Bill! That was very sweet of you. I am happy that you read my blog.

Thank you for sharing this with me Bill. I am a blogger that appreciates being awarded a badge. Maybe because I was never in the Girl Guides, ha, ha.

Hi Bill, Thank you both so much for selecting me to receive the Happy 101 Award. In my November 30th post, "Looking Back" I declined a number of awards, and have decided to continue in that vein. I am honored, but don't wish to participate. I have never done any writing, and I am absoluely thrilled that you enjoy what I write. Thank you to my very first follower!

Thank you very much Bill!

Pizza and Celtic music make me happy too... I miss good American pizza. LOL At least I was able to bring my CDs with me!

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Oh, Bill, thanks so much! Your blog is one of my favorites. I love the posting today with funny names transcribed in the census! I was falling off my chair laughing because I just had a phone call from a telemarketer (probably in India somewhere) who murdered my first name! I can't even repeat how he pronounced "Heather"

Bill, thank you for thinking of me! I really appreciate it. I love how you listed "road trips with your sister" on your happy list. I never had a brother, but I have two sons and a daughter. I hope they are close like that when they grow up! :)

Thanks, Bill, for being a regular reader of my blog, A light that shines again. It doesn't get as much attention as my other blogs, so I particularly appreciate your mention of it.

Keep up the good writing here at West in New England. Here's to Boston Irish ancestry!
