  1. Hi, I only want to thank you for following muy blog, even when it’s in another language and many of it has contents related to another country, I’m a little surprised that you found it interesting, but I’m very glad with it.
    Well, welcome to Universo de A!.

    1. Vijay, as always you are entirely welcome my friend … I think I’ll have to make a special award just for you as my biggest sharer … much appreciated, I don’t use twitter much but I do see the notifications 🙂

      Warm regards

      DC

  2. Congratulations on your multiply nominations Don! You deserve them! 🙂 And thank you so much for nominating me with this beautiful award. Goodnight and I wish you for tomorrow a happy Friday! 🙂

  3. Why thank you Mr Charisma. I’m back blogging more lately.,Ironically I thought being on holidays would lend itself to more blogging but the opposite result occurred as there were so many other things to do in the hours I usually dedicate to my paid work. 🙂

  4. Thank you so much … cheered me up … have been feeling a bit up and down for some time … the emotions are like a roller coaster right now …. but your posts always make me smile and feel happy. .. A big hug from your friend in Sweden .. BinB .. love that nickname ..

    1. You are very welcome 🙂

      Sorry I don’t get on twitter that much, I do monitor, and occasionally post, seems challenging enough for me keeping up with one social network !

      1. It is a bit like Alice in Wonderland – and down the Rabbit Hole – having 140 character dialogue with people all around the world in different time zones while fighting off those who want to sell you 10,000 Twitter followers for $5. I doubt that I will reach the dizzying heights of multi-thousands but I have encountered some interesting people (not as interesting as on wordpress, obviously!) Just going to put up today’s blog and then will be awarding.

      2. Yes I like twitter more than facebook, probably ought to invest a little time figuring it out … am starting to be able to say something worth saying in less than 2000 words, so may eventually get it down to 140 characters !

  5. Congratulations Don Charisma. You deserve all the awards.
    Thank you for your nomination. I’m really honored.
    I didn’t receive the 2 last ping back, because my blogname changed to irenedesign2011.com, now without wordpress inside.
    Irene

  6. Congratulations to you on your multiple wins!!! You have a great blog and you certainly deserve it!!!
    I respectfully decline my nomination at this time because my health isn’t being cooperative. But I thank you so much for thinking of me, I really appreciate it.

      1. pink elephant is where the writer tries to catch out the reader to see if the reader has read the document, by inserting a pink elephant … john caelen taught me that !

  7. My GOODNess gracious gracious ME!
    First – well done – much deserved.
    Second – how LONG did you take to put all those links in?????
    ANd PLEASE tell me you are not going to go to EVEY one of those blogs with a short happy message?
    Oddly did a post deliberating Awards and what I should do about them! I had a similar idea – but not quite so extravagant – well done chap.
    I trust you are feeling settled and better 😀

    1. Hey, yes am feeling settled, need a bit more sleep and then it’s Don Charisma II

      First, thank you.
      Second, a long time.
      Third, no they are all followers of DonCharisma.org, so should see the post in their feed, and if not I’ve pingback’ed them … so no excuse either way …

      As for deliberating awards, don’t do it, get in with it and accept them. Like the guy said about marriage in his viral post “It’s not for you”

      1. All good dear Sir – not much change (wet -lol)- just a bit more settled in the new town as the days go by – ya know? 😀
        Went to our first town playhouse the other night to watch a Shakespeare live streaming from London (Donmar Warehouse?) Was fantastic!!! Getting all cultural with the kids n stuff 😉

      2. Takes me ages to get settled anywhere new, I’d say at least 3 years before I felt at home in London … Ah shakespeare, would be good for a wordsmith like yourself, but I can never understand what the hell he’s on about !

      3. lolololololololololol…I was rather concerned about the understanding aspect MYSELF Don!!! We had a few giggle in the show – mainly because we were all concentrating so darn hard to understand it. When they spoke slowly we caught the the basic meaning…but yeah – the long philosophical speeches: you kind of drift off and then go ‘oh yes – moving on…’ 😀
        It does take a while to settle — all in good time right.
        BUT – the ACTING – fantastic! The emotions they can convey is gobsmacking – Ton Hiddleton (Loki – avengers) was in the lead – what a role he took.
        Now I am waffling on —-
        Goodnight. ANd have a wonderful rest…a nice long peaceful deep sleeeeeeeep….

      4. My ex-girlfriend said to me don’t listen and try to understand fully, better to feel, that way one get’s a more satisfying meal.

        I quite like Loki out of the cads, the British one turns me completely off, Guy Pierce, I intensely dislike him, he seems to stand for almost everything I hold vile, won’t watch a movie because he’s in it … well except “The Count of Monte Cristo”, and at least he gets his come-up-ance in that and eventually killed.

        Managed 10 hours last night, sleep bank is filling up, yay !

      5. Well THAT is good news!!
        I don’t know all the ‘Lokis’ I am afraid.
        ‘cads’ ?
        The only one I know is British – but not Guy Pierce – so nope – you lost me completely there dude 😉

      6. Cad is British shorthand for cruel bastard, asshole or arrogant prick … aka the bad guy … So you’ll have seen plenty of them in movies and books …

        Guy Pierce I just don’t like as you already gathered … perhaps because he always plays the character I’m supposed to hate !

      7. Silly woman! Ofcourse – now that makes sense – I am on the sleep deprivation mode now..lol! 3.5hrs last night ..gggha. Not a good plan – playing with gifs 😀 😀
        Laters dude – keeping you from your work(and me from mine 😉 ) Great to hear all moving along at a steady pace though.

      8. Hey – had to dash off :/
        Yeah – when she gets her flicker and wordpress blog up and under way hey 😉
        She takes it quite seriously…but right now in the middle of A level graphics; physics; chemistry and math. So a bit tied up 😉 All in good time hey.
        THANK YOU – so much for asking Don – very cool!

      9. Welcome, I do remember stuff sometimes … she should concentrate on exams anywhere, will serve her in later life 🙂

        SO I will wait with baited breath then …

      10. Yes – you do that 😉 Yip – exams around the corner right.
        Worked out yesterday that she has 18 months till her years intake of varsity starts…FAR too much to do before then if she is to go study. (either doing something like animation/web design/ graphics etc…or Astro physics…nice!! Ambituous one this gal – and a quiet soul.)
        Did you check out my ‘gifs’ I made?? Had a blast!! Not 100% – but a start at a new ‘skill’.

      11. Disco one? ( Lord we are doing well tonight with crossed wires! lol) do you mean the ‘idiot one’ ?
        In ‘Gimp’ – trial and error – come to think I should probably put up a tutorial!! Actually meant to and then the day got REAL long and late real quick (you know the drill!)

      12. Disco mrs idiot for sure … I only just noticed the butterfly, I was doing my shakespeare thing we talked about, feeling not thinking !

        Yup know that drill entirely, but gimp is good enough, I can figure the rest myself as and when I need a disco gif !

      13. I had in mind you may enjoy that one 😀 Yeah – gimp is pretty basic once inside hey – just a bit of playing about and voilà.
        Still amazes me what we can do with tech just sitting in our homes. Did you ever watch the movie ‘Gravity’ ?
        MAN 0 I would LOVE to do CGI!! Or any animation in fact. Screw Shakespeare – hollywood here I come 😉

      14. What time do you wake up Don??! Thats horrific hours. 11pm here (but you prob know that already) I am not replying to your comments anymore till +- 10 hours from now …;) Nite

      15. I will prob be off shortly for a while – Teen asked for a bit of graphics help. Bless her – she normally just struggles along – nice that she is learning to ask now (and that she trusts my input – THAT is always a good thing for staying connected with a teen :D)

        Take care of the PMT with some herbal tea…

      16. Now that is likely closer to the mark …bless you –

        AND Milo – sounds like a splendid plan hmmm – have not had it in YEARS…

        Good night young Sir (the testosterone levels gave it away 😉 ) *.*

        ~~~have a brilliant rest~~~

  8. That is most kind of you.
    I have wanted to do a post about your blog and a couple of others which I have come to recently – and will do so once election fever plus feeding an orphan lamb in the house give me time to do it properly.
    That dragon illustration is the tops.

    1. You are very welcome, and certainly glad to hear what you’ve got to say about me 🙂

      I can’t take credit I’m afraid for the Dragon illustration, there’s a link to the blogger who did it at the bottom of the post …

      Good luck with the lamb, there are many lost souls …
