Too many awards

Today's Link

Today's Saying
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. ~Leo Buscaglia

Today's Picture

Akelamalu from " everything and nothing " gave me this beautiful award.
Of course it comes with rules:
Put this Award in a post on your blog
Invite 10 people to take this award
Don’t forget to link back to the person that gave this award to you.
Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog
Share the love to those who get this award

I like Akelamalu. She is one of my favorite bloggers. It is because of her I do Friday 55. She is kind, considerate and a wonderful person.
That is why I hate having to turn down this award.
Aside from the fact that I don’t deserve it, a fact that I could overlook, it comes with rules I can’t or won’t keep.
I believe if you can’t take the whole package you shouldn’t take any part of it.

Why?

Lets look at the way this works out.

1. Akelamalu gives 10 of us the award.
2. If we each gave it to 10 people then 110 people would have the award.
3. Now if each of the new 100 gave it to 10 people then 1110 would have the award
4. If the 1000 new people each gave it to 10 people then 11,110 would have the award
5. If the 10000 new people each gave it to 10 people then 111,110 would have the award
6. If the 100,000 new people each gave it to 10 people then 1,111,110 would have the award

Look at that we are only 6 steps away from the start and we are up to a million people


7. If the 1,000,000 new people each gave it to ten people we would have 11,111.110 people with the award
8. If the 11,000,000 new people each gave it to ten people we would have 111,111,110 people with the award
9. If the 100,000,000 new people each gave it to ten people we would have 1,111,111,110 people with the award.

Now at step 9 we are at a billion. Are there that many bloggers?

It has to end somewhere so I am saying no further.
It stops here.

News from Pigeon Falls
The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal
Yesterday Tommy UK suggested to Eino that the way to stop things from coming from the other dimension is with a cage. It would run along the bottom of the trench , up the sides, across the top, and up the far end. The doorway area was left open. Something could come through into the trench but not get out. Eino decided this was a good idea and is having the cage made. It has too be strong enough to hold a huge wooly elephant. It should be ready in a couple of days.
Tommy UK is having second thoughts. He is not sure one can go around the projected solution in the driblet so he is still trying with Tammy to figure out what “ out of the black comes the light” means. Could it have something to do with the man in black?

Wrap UP
It has been one of those days. My blood oxygen levels dropped that means I couldn't go anywhere without an oxygen bottle. My internet connection was out all morning. My son grand sons and my daughter went to Cedar Point and I so wanted to go with them. I discovered I fouled up the date for writing on Portrait of Words. If anybody has an award out there for a calendar klutz I deserve it. I now have the linksy up on Portrait of Words. It's late but it's up. Now I need a breathing treatment.

Congratulations Dr. John. Well deserved.There is another one for you and Betty on my blog posted today :) These sure do add up quickly. I'm wondering how they can make a cage as big as the trench and to hold a wooly elephant...it's going to be a huge cage. The men in black could be the aliens possibly? Well done and congrats again :)

lol, Dr. John, what if someone would have said we have to stop at half a billion bloggers, than we would have never met and my life would have only that good...lol...

love that the blog is up again, boy was i in the dark as to how to fix it lol..so glad to hear from you...see you have even more awards and you deserve them all...

i got to tell you that i'm not dating any 92 yr old no matter if he had the million or not lol..someone told me that i should cause thats the way to go, one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel and how sad it would be if turn 'love' into a sham and dirtied it like that...

love was once pure and joyful and beautiful and it felt soo good and if i'm ever to feel it again it will be something to be proud of and to be grateful for...too many tears and regrets already to add another...

going away in a few days with kids and Chelo of course...we are gonna have ourselves some fun, well deserve and much anticipated...

will post about it later on today or tomorrow one hopes and you will see what i'm talking about..

Well, the only fault with YOUR reasoning on the whole award thing, is that it assumes that each time the award is given it is given to new people who have not priorly received the award. But that is never the case... sometimes the award is given to the same people over and over and over again... and really it's nothing more than a popularity contest! The fact that they are given out with rules and assigned numbers takes any and all value away from them. But more importantly than that is that I blog for the friendship. (that wasn't how it started, but it's how it's ending...) I would never in a MILLION years accept an AWARD from a "real life" friend just for being their friend.... nor would any be given! The whole idea is just ludicrous! I'm friends with you because I LIKE you - not because you give great awards! LOL! Or because I expect one.... NONSENSE! Blog Awards are nonsense!


OF COURSE it has to do with the MIB!!! Haven't I been sayin' that alllllllllllllllll along?

You do deserve the award, but you know i understand your sentiment about forwarding. We are all such rebels; D

I hope they use a special metal for the cage.

LOL well you do deserve the award Dr. John but it is up to you whether you keep to the rules or not. :)

Congratulations for your award and you calculation is stunning. I would never have thought that it could amount to that much. But who knows, perhaps we are not far from a billion bloggers. That is only about 20 percent of the word population.

Dr. John, that was one of the most elegant excuses for not carrying on the award giving! That alone is worth another.....award?

I'm always careful of awards. So far I've accepted them, but not passed them on. I suppose I haven't formulated a proper policy yet.

Too many awards -- I definitely agree. The comments are all the award I need.

And Tommy, at least, is thinking. Sometimes it takes trail and error to even get on the right thought path.
