Great job, I absolutely love the Carnival pics. Perfect one-year-anniversary celebration.

And I would go with another man, woman, beast or ping-pong table to eat at the Ryland again!

Happy Anniversary!

Enlighten - thanks, folks. It means a lot that you scooped up one of my posts after I forgot to submit. The pics are a lovely touch, too.

At 6:24 PM, Blogger Enlighten-NewJersey said...

The links were in carnival hosting order - we included one link from each blog that has acted as host for the past year. The remaining links, for the most part, were in order of time submitted.

The only exception was the first link - common practice dictates you don't link to your own blog. The link was actually the first we received and the nature of the post and title – ‘Alternatives’ - seemed perfect.

At 7:11 PM, Blogger Tata said...

That's really nice work, and thank you for creating this marvelous thing.

At 8:57 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Beautifully done! Thanks for putting this together. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
