Stylish Blogger Award

A Stylish Blogger Award for three of the four blogs I'm currently running, in just a couple of days... I should admit to be most honoured by this -a bit overwhelmed by such cascade of appreciations, in fact! As I've already commented at my other blogsites, I know little about such award, except that it seems to work as a chain, promoted by bloggers and blog-readers themselves; I've no idea on who or what was the first one to have such a lightning-expanding initiative. Well, to be worth the nomination you are expected to keep the chain alive by fulfilling the following four rules:
  • Thank and link back to the person giving you the award
  • Share seven things about yourself
  • Select 10-15 blogs who you think deserve this award
  • Contact these bloggers and let them know about the nomination.

Let's fulfill such rules then:

1. My most sincere gratefulness to Jiminho of EvE Syldavia (, who has entitled me for this nomination. Wish you keep reading and commenting my Defiant Principality what-if-Historic Episodes!

2. Seven things about me (none is new with respect to those explained at my other nominated blogs):
  • The town I'm living in is a small village, not larger than 750 inhabitants; its name is Les Cabanyes, and it's sorrounded everywhere by a luxurious landscape, a vineyards ocean: such is Penedès county!
  • My lovely wife and I share an uninterrupted tradition, since we fell in love nearly three decades ago: every friday evening we share an entire bottle of cava (Catalan version of champagne) by dinner. Table isn't left until bottle is empty :)
  • I humbly believe myself as a Catalan patriot, old-style Republican, and try to behave as a true freethinker -with limited success, I must admit.
  • Only 50 years old, and growing younger every day! :D
  • My main passion is miniature painting -sometimes, I recall myself playing with them! Secondly, travelling. I enjoy planning my own routes. And books too, nearly any kind of book -although interest in novel has displaced any other kind of readings as I've been growing older.
  • TV? puagh!
  • My wife uses to say I'm like a parrott. This is because, when at travel, she often catches me attentively listening at the table behind ours (even when I badly understand their language), just to guess which language they're speaking, to stablish parallelisms with a similar known language and try to understand it, or to memorize and apply their particular singsongs and idioms.

3. Other blogs, interesting or well-designed enough to me, for being awarded too. Sure there are more of these, but it would be useless quoting all of them:

4. Already done! ;)
