I like Bella because......

When I think of Bella, I think of the time I had to get some boiled peanuts at the convenience store in Florida. Bella had written a post about the peanut festival in her home town. I was told by my wife and her parents that I wouldn't like them. when I tried them, I found out they were okay, that they tasted like chick peas.

Bella is an ob-gyn nurse in Alabama. As such many children come into the world and the first thing they may see is her face. After this, they are in for a major disappointment when they start seeing other people. But Bella is more than just another pretty face, she is a very interesting person.

She posted that her first job was at Hardees. I'm still trying to picture her wearing one of those polyester uniforms, complete with the ugly hat over all that hair. Also, I can now see why she made the decision to join PETA. And she went from Hardees to health care. Go figure.

Bella is also green, meaning she drives a hybrid and eats organic food. One of the first posts of hers I read was about having an organic pizza for lunch.

Her blog is called "It is what it is." check it out.

Too funny Cliff! But thanks, you are too kind! I wish I had a picture of me wearing my Hardee's uniform back in the day, but there was NO WAY I would've been caught dead in it!

You'll be proud to know that I just ordered an environmental car tag for Lola (my car). I'm so excited to have that over the boring 'ol Bama tag!

Take care,

Bella...hello! I drive a hybrid too. I got my Prius in 2006. I love it. I'm so happy I can use my mp3 player in it. I got the green colored Prius.

I loved Hardees way back when. I think they had like 60 cent hamburgers.

Bella said...

Hey Struke...My Prius is black (2007). I have the mp3 thing too and love it. My "friends" make fun of my car, but I'm the one laughing when they are at the gas station all the time.

Thanks for letting me jump back and forth to your blog Cliff!

Two main reasons for my I Like posts.

First is I really do like all those I link to, and second is for those who come here to check all my good blog friends.

You can do all the jumping back and forth you want. BTW did you hear the song at the top of my player list? You mentioned in your blog when you talked about your favorite love songs that you loved this one.

Hi Cliff
I like Bella too.She seems to be a very honest,straightforward person.There is nothing fake about her and I like that.
Her blog is very interesting and she cooks like a dream!

Bella is OK. I see her all over the blog world --- I didn't know she was "green"!

You know, going green can be quite expensive, but I am doing the best I can .. my dream is to become a complete vegetarian. But right now with vegetables so high, and some are so bad --- well, it put me in a catch 22 situation. Maybe when I move to the country this will not be a problem.

Bella, we be proud of you!

I love this! It is very encouraging, cliff! I actually copied you on my blog.

Thank you Melanie. I like doing this better than giving awards because you are concentrating on one blogger at a time. I got the idea after listening to Zig Ziglar on a podcast. It helps you help other build their readers one at a time, or as they say when cooking ribs "low and slow."

I adore Bella because:

She is a true Southern Belle who makes me proud.
She is astonishingly kind and giving.
She is humble.
And because I like green.
Her beauty is like the fourth thing you notice about her.
But once you do,
her truths ring fore-front and true.

You know, God chooses his angels quite carefully.......
Bella is proof.

And so are YOU!

I enjoyed reading about Bella and being a southerner...I can relate to the boiled green peanuts...I love them.
Congratulations, Bella on being an exceptional person.

PS: I found my way to this Blog from my friend, Amias at Liquid Plastic.

Maggie: I just checked out both of your blogs. I am humbled that you have already added this blog as a link on both of them.
