**No Awards Please ~ Thank you ** I will no longer be accepting awards **

I would like to thank Tina Liu of  The Cosmos for kindly nominating me for the Reader Appreciation Award.  Her enthusiasm for astronomy shines forth in her blog:  http://astronomybythecosmos.com It is easy to read and features fabulous facts and photos.

There is a list of rules, for each award, that I will include at the end of this post. Meantime, I want to share a special list of blogs, that I follow and that, most, also follow greenlightlady.  I really enjoy the following list, and I suspect I’ve left some out as there are many others I also like to read.  But this is my current short list.  The first one is my husband’s blog & he recently transformed my computer from a slug into a dragonfly… he’s my hero!
