2007 Top Bananas
As promised, here are the 2007 Top Banana Awards. I have many winners that come to this blog, so I have many awards to give out. I have awards for bloggers and non bloggers alike. So without further adieu, let the ceremony begin.
Non Blogger awards: these go to the following folks, all supporters of this blog, given by their forum names:
Rich from Medina, David5258, WZZP, JimOhio, newsnomore, CollegeDJ86
These are given to those whom I have contact with on a routine basis:
Brenda, Mary Ann
This one goes to a sorta blogger, meaning he has a blog, but hasn't posted on it in months:
Now I will present these special awards by geographic region:
From the West coast, the Better Than Good award goes to Mel Kaye of Attitude, the Ultimate Power. Also from California, the Mad Magazine Meets Cosmopolitan award goes to Valley Girl of Life of a Valley Girl.
Now on to the Midwest we go. Receiving the Windy City award is Curmudgeon of Second Effort.
The Petticoat Junction award is awarded to the Terre Haute Gang: Sindi of Life is a Roller Coaster, Stacy of My Thoughts, and Michelle of Rusin Roundup. Michelle also gets special recognition for enduring Christmas shopping season, working at the Evil Big Box Store(tm).
Heading south, we have several awards to give out: Suzanne of Liquid Illuzion gets both the Gateway to the Blogosphere award and the Celebrate Good Times award. The second award is in recognition of all the posts she put up in my honor on the one year anniversary of this blog.
Frasypoo of This and That gets the God and Country award, for both her Christian testimony and and her support of the political system in this country, even though she wasn't born here.
Bella, of It is What it is gets the Southern Cuisine award for her recommendation that I try boiled peanuts on my trip to Florida.
I award the Proud Mother-Good Devotions award to Kathy of Kathy's Klavier for her posts that glorify the Lord and keeping us up to date on her son who is a member of the Christian metal band A Plea For Purging.
The Fit and Trim award goes to Diamond of A Day in the Zone, once again the featured link for January, for helping others with her research of resources on weight loss on the web.
Incognito, the Closet Republican gets the Hen in the Fox House award, for giving political views that are contrary to others in her chosen profession.
To Michigan I go to give a special award. Best Band Mom, Corps Division goes to Jessica, of Five Pines and Through the Viewfinder.
I will go back to Ohio to award these: The Philo Farnsworth award is given to Tim Lones of Cleveland Classic Media.
The Homer Simpson award goes to Springfield's own Pat Jenkins of Pat J.(at least in my mind)Knows it all. For those who aren't as up on culture as others, the Simpsons are from Springfield.
Here are some international awards: Warren Peace of Peace of My Mind gets the Canadian Devotional award for his sharing of his Bible studies with the rest of the blogosphere.
And last, but not least, Amel of Amel's Realm receives the Intercontinental Good Friend award for her blogging from Finland, the land of some of my ancestors.
All those who visit my blog are winners. These awards are given with a very light heart and I hope we can all be good friends as we go into 2008 and beyond.
