Two more brits die in Iraq - in a helicopter crash (possible accident).
Tony Blair wants to remind us that the troops are there to fight terrorism
But wasn't that Saddams excuse for his brutality, to put down any opposition?

My friend...I am humbled and honored to have been chosen.

Life's Journey is most deserving.

Renegade Eye said...

Thank you for the honor. I was choosen earlier. You can't have it twice. The good news is that you get to pick another blog.

A well deserved honor! Your blog always provides me with food for though.

Renegade is that the rules? A blog can only be chosen once? Not that it matters if I have been chosen more than once, but something about "if a blog has been chosen as a thinking blog by another blogger it is no longer eligible to make others think" is a bit off.

It's like saying I voted for Bush so noone el- No. Bad example. :>)

Here are the rules:

Should you choose to participate, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging. I thought it would be appropriate to include them with the meme.
The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote ([T]here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

I could be wrong about the double-selection rule, but methinks you, Reegade, are just being nice and spreading the love, as it were.

On second thought... I can see where a blog that has already been chosen and is chosen again might not want to post another "Hey! I've been chosen...again." bit. So, to be fair and spread the love, methinks Renegade has and had the right idea. If my muse were not sound asleep I could have asked her what she thought... I am nothing without her...:>(
Of course if the one doing the choosing has to keep changing his or her post to reflect those chosen as being not eligible it might be a bit difficult for them to keep editing their post.

Damn it! I need to wake my muse to come to a conclusion on this one!
Excuse me.

Okay. I jostled my muse and posed the question to her. She motioned for me to lean in closer so she could whisper in her I'm asleep voice. I leaned in, You woke me up for that? To which I replied, Ummm. Yes. I didn't know what to say. She sighed, You make life too complicated.

She's right. I do.

I smiled and said, You're right. I do. My muse kissed my cheek, If you've already been chosen by someone as a "thinking blogger" and you have to ask me what to do when you've been chosen a second time, perhaps the first time was a mistake.

"Ouch." Was my reply.
