Awards Galore Updated 21 June 2009

Once again it's time to wear a glittering gown and go up the stage to receive awards :-) Three lovely ladies passed me these awards: Genejosh, Beth Moreno and Chris. To them I say thank you. I appreciate your thoughfulness. You are sweet. I'm so glad to have met you in the blogosphere.

For the rules:

This is the easiest and the fastest way to:
- Make your Authority Technorati explode.
- Increase your Google Page Rank.
- Get more traffic to your blog.
- Make more new friends.

The rules are very simple:
- Start copy from “Begin Copy” until “End Copy” to your blog.
- Put your own blog name and link.
- Tag your friends as much as you can.


The Kreative Blogger Award asks the awardee to list 7 things that he/she loves. Here are mine:
*My boys: Ceejay and Mozart
*My life online
*My fondest dream (getting there hopefully)
*Shoes and clothes that make me look like my figure hasn't been blasted off yet =)
*Food, glorious food!
*Books, music and movies

When I posted these awards, I noted that this is going to be updated for the bloggers I am going to pass these awards on to. Here, finally is the said update:

There are two excellent bloggers that I have recently met and I want to pass these awards to them: they are Anya and Rajesh. The Blogger Buddy Award is for the rapport we seem to have developed among us since we met. I love your blogs and I visit them from time to time, hence the Loyal Follower Award is also for you two. You have many followers to whom you
may also want to pass this award on to.

For my love of travel, India, being very significant on my list, and for the cheer I always feel everytime I visit Kareltje's site, I hope Rajesh and Anya respectively, pick up the Favorite Blogs Award. Your blogs have many fans because of obviously the creativity in them. It is for such reason that I am also passing the Kreativ Blogger Award to both of you.

Thank you Anya and Rajesh for commenting on these awards earlier, but I am not passing them to you because you left comments. You truly are the deserving recipients of these awards. I am glad we met on the blogosphere. Here's to more good blogging in the future!

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
