Thank You

As I have been trying to get the hang of this whole blogging thing, I've forgotten to formally thank one individual who has ventured to show me the ropes. Ivy of Kopiaste has been kind enough to act as my blog's "Nona" (Greek for Godmother) and I thank her dearly for explaining many a things regarding the blogging process and for making me feel like I have known her for years, even though we've exchanged only a few e-mails for just under a month. I especially thank her for awarding me, among others, the:

Ivy, your acknowledgment is greatly appreciated and, again, thank you for all your help. Se euxaristw para polu kai na se panta kala!

In turn, I would like to pass this award on to all the blogs listed in my blog list as I feel they are all innovative, informative and indeed brilliant.

Peter of Kalofagas -- thank you for being one of the first to visit my blog and for your kind comments!

Ivy of Kopiaste -- Polla filia kai xilia euxaristw!

Peter of Souvlaki For The Soul -- also a big euxaristw to you Peter for visiting and leaving me your kind words!

Maria, it's a well deserved award. You are doing a great job and even if your blog is less than a month's old, I'm sure it's going to have a great future.
