Nominations

(Yes, I realise that a lot of these are Canadian Bloggers! I don`t see too many, and we Canadian bloggers need to be noticed and celebrated, too!!)
Now...go now, and do the same (as a Great Man once said).

PS...I re-read the Liebster Award "rules" and I forgot that that blogs should have less than 300 followers in order for them to be nominated..oh well..i am not redoing it, bc I don't feel like it..haha...most of my noms have less than 300, I think, anyway.
