Thank you Art Epiphany for nominating my blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award on 28 December 2011.  Took me a few days to get to this. What a resounding conclusion to Blogging Year 2011.

Now for the rules of conversion:

1. Share ten (10) things no one (meaning the blogging community) know about yourself.

Here goes:

  1. I cannot sing for nuts – even if my life depended on it
  2. I dislike water sports but love motor sports and field & track events
  3. I am the only guy in my circle of family/friends who does not like soccer
  4. I love dogs for pets
  5. I speak Bahasa Indonesia – and even get by in English 🙂
  6. I must take a long walk after dinner – it is almost an addiction
  7. No matter how late I sleep, I am up and about by six-thirty in the morning
  8. I have taken 40 years to research and complete my next novel: Fallen Grace, The Return – due in 2012
  9. I first learnt to use a computer when I was 46 years old
  10. I must drink a cup of tea before bed – it actually helps me sleep

2. Pass it on to six other bloggers. My nominees are:

(i)                  Hscraig >

(ii)                Talleygilly >

(iii)               Africanboythatwrites >

(iv)              Adollyciousirony >

(v)                thejerseygal®™ >

(vi)              Jane Thorne >

Thank you everyone and happy blogging!

(I have a couple of more awards to pass on….I’ll see what I can accomplish today. Starting tomorrow, my children will be flying off and we want to spend more time together)



  1. Eric my buddy you have no idea how much you have helped me by nominating my blog for this award, it’s gone a bit potty in the last few days…much gratitude to you and I hope your award is having the same effect at your end! Jane

  2. Congratulations, Eric! Numbers 7, 8, and 10 are also true of me, pretty much! These lists are so great for us followers! I will eagerly be looking for your book this year!

    1. Hello, hello, hello Jane 🙂

      Glad that you see me as a ‘buddy’ – simply love that.
      All good wishes with your writing,

  4. Congratulations! You absolutely deserve this. Again, as i commented on your 7 x 7 Link Award; you were on my list too (meaning the post, concerning this award, I’m still writing).
