Mike Minzes

Mike Minzes is one of those bloggers everyone loves. He runs a number of blogs in addition to working at his job, and always has good things to say about others and their work.

One of his blogs is simply for the sole benefit of others,
Disaster Recovery Discussion Board - DRDB.
The purpose is to help others prepare for things that might be life threatening, or make life miserable without some preparation. Very altruistic, this.

Some of his others like The Experiment and The Experiment - A Thousand Words are for others' entertainment and the sake of being creative, something that benefits others, also.

Of course one is for his personal benefit, and may help others by keeping them informed, but Mike also maintains Mike's Homefront, a blog much like the rest of us do, a very social centric site.

Mike has chosen me for an award, for which he is infinitely qualified, showing once again how magnanimous he truly is. Thank you , Mike. I aspire to earn it and will endeavor to do so.

I understand that I am to nominate 5 others for this award also, so I will be presenting to the following dudes:
Galen, who's Mr. Knowitall is a humorous, sometimes irreverent, always enjoyable site.
Top Cat, who's Open Window is a humorous, thoughtful, loving, and enjoyable site.

And I will be nominating the following dudettes Mike's modified award, since I don't think only dudes can be awesome:
Mona, who's Two Bits is full of love, poetry, amusing stories, culturally educational, funny, and is an enjoyable site.
Snow Elf, who's Just Another Ironic Coincidence too is full of love, wonderfully crafted stories and is an enjoyable site.
Serena Joy, who's Parenthetically Speaking... is an intelligent, fun, humorous and is an enjoyable site with occasional activities to stimulate the mind and creativity.

It is I who enjoys the company of the awesome, and feel my nominees deserve it far more than I.

well congratulations! you are quite deserving since i find you to be quite awesome. i think you've also found some other wonderful bloggers to pass the award onto as well. :)

Somehow, I feel it will be coming your way soon. The only reason I didn't was there was only to be five as far as I know, and I know you've had at least a couple of awards already (that's not to say you aren't deserving believe me, I did think of you.)

Charles! you deserve that!

Me? An award?

Hey I am just experimenting & you dont give out awards for that, just like this!!!

Honestly, I am not ready for any award yet!

Yay!! Congrats to you, Charles! You're such a sweetie! I've been so crazy busy the past few days that I haven't been able to do any "fun" stuff on my computer really at all! :(

I agree with Serena--it's privilege enough just having met everyone. You guys make blogging so rewarding, and what started as an escape for me has lead me to so many wonderful friendships!! :)

Thanks so much for the nomination!!

I'll be back around soon,

oh and Mike is a totally awesome guy no matter what the little birdies (or deer, or squirrels, or hedgehogs, etc) in his backyard say.

I'm sure you and Mona are extremely worth to get this award! Congratulations!!!

(Sorry, but I have not yet had the time to check the blogs of the other nominates; disconnected all the morning today, I'm seriously delayed in my blog tour. I will check another day.)

thank you charles for your kind words, this is quite an honor and I appreciate it.
I'll get to work nominating some others.

Aren't we all just experimenting? You deserve the award. We all know it.

Thank you. Well you're just going to have to get moving on that fun computer stuff, do you think they were made for work or something?
I don't think its quite enough, some people just need to tell others how special they are. Like me having to tell all of you.
You're quite welcome and well deserving.
Mike's wildlife problem is due to their jealousy, I'll pay those critters no heed. See you later.

It was really nice of Mike to nominate me, but I think Mona really deserves her award. Thank you.
Sorry to hear about your connection problems, when you can get around and check the others out, they are wonderful.

You are quite welcome and you are deserving of the award. Your's was the Bastardized Bard that was nice. That says a lot about your nature, you're like the kitty that never shows his claws.

Wonderful picks Charlie.

As long as you call me Danny, fair is fair. :)

After seeing and saying the things on your blog, I'm hoping that that isn't intimating you want to see my butt. If it's just a name thing, then that's fair.

I still like comics, their just harder to afford now. The good thing about them now though, is the art is so much better than back when I was a kid. Did I tell you I knew many of the people at the now defunct CrossGen comics?

Thanks brother for the Kudo's..
You are a very kind and thoughtful person, and I really appreciate all of your input on my blog.
You add a lot of class, and you seem to have a lot of fun, trying to catch the G-Man in a little Faux-Pas here and there....I love it, sometimes I do things just to see of anyone is paying attention...
You Always Do!!!
Thanks again.....Galen

No. Thank you. I love reading your blog. I'm currently working on being kind and thoughtful, but I'll take that as a sign of progress. As to class, its strictly low class I bring. Paying attention, who me?
You're quite deserving, G. Its my pleasure to point out how people like you.

What kind words!!! It's better than any award I have ever received!!

Sorry this is so late. I was fighting with the animals in the yard again. They took my wife's tomato from her garden so I had to go hunt one down and take one of them.

Thanks again, Charles.

At Sunday, July 8, 2007 at 8:13:00 PM EDT, Blogger Charles $visitorIP said...

I'm kind? You're kind. I'm just saying thanks to you. You have to do something about those animals, they're going to so experienced in military strategies that Bush couldn't stop them with all the resources available to the US. Wait... UH OH!

` My question is, how much do these awards really implicate?

At Sunday, July 8, 2007 at 9:20:00 PM EDT, Blogger Charles $visitorIP said...


I don't know. Perhaps that someone likes you, or appreciates what you have to say?

I love Mona n Rick...they rock!

I'll check out the rest soon. tnxx Charles!
