Tropical Storm Debby and the sunshine award

Marguerite of Cajun Delights has sweetly given my blog a Sunshine Award, and there are a few little rules to follow in accepting it.   I've already done the easy part (taking the award and downloading the image) but I am also supposed to answer 10 questions and then pass the award along to 10 other blogs.   I certainly do enjoy surfing around with all the sunny and colorful photo blogs, and I'd like to highlight those.     Mostly, I'd like to bestow the sunshine award on Tropical Storm Debby in hopes of our continued clear weather.

1. Favorite color:  blue.

2. Favorite animal: dog.

3. Favorite number:  73.

4. Favorite drink:  coffee.

5. Facebook or Twitter: lurker

6. Good Book or a Good Movie:  depends how good.

7. My Passion:  newborns.

8. Giving or getting presents:  as hard as question 6.

9. Favorite day of the year:  the day before vacation

10. Favorite flowers: morning glories. 

Now to the award giving--   I'm excluding New Orleans blogs, as we tend to be moody, and also relatives' blogs, but my dynamic blog list on the right-hand column includes the ones I always read on a daily basis, however their mood falls.   I am a little surprised to receive the award myself, as my intention is to illustrate a range of what New Orleans is.   But my underlying purpose is to express love, this is the language I know. 

So ...    I happily recommend the following blogs as enjoyable and transporting:

Aleph - Uruguay.

bicocacolors - Spain.

collage journeys - USA, Vermont.

Comfort Spiral - USA, Hawaii.

Foto ao Acaso! - Portugal.

Photos of the Day - England.

Roy's World - USA, Pennsylvania.

thanks to all of you for expressing your visions!
