About Me 2012

My Name is George and I love peanut butter – in satay sauce, on toast, in dates. I love curries, both Thai and Indian. I love meats, especially lamb. I love helping mum in the kitchen, especially when we’re experimenting, making new recipes and trying new combinations.

I love lists and spreadsheets. I love photos and modifying them on Photoshop. I love blogging, and love it when I get lots of views and likes, and comments.

I love being productive, and exercising. I love biking and swimming and running. I love playing tag, stuck in the mud, basketball and football.

I love acting, and clubs, and making friends. I love video games, especially adventure games with levels and goals and things to unlock.

I love board games – like Monopoly Scrabble, Carcassonne, Nab It, Boggle, Settlers of Catan, Blokus and Ingenious.

I love lots of animals, including snakes, dogs, penguins, pandas and birds. I love plants, and planting plants.

    U have a very interesting blog and I really enjoyed while reading yours. One more thing I want to say.Before clicking About page I clicked Blogs of my family and friends :)Liked it.keep posting and I am eager to browse yours:)

  3. Hiya George! Pleased to meet you, and love the helmet! But, I also like your “About” – very creative!. Thanks so much for the like on an earlier post of mine, “Colorado”. That was from a few years ago. Recently, I went back for a ski trip and there’s a slew of new winter scenes on my blog now. Take a look when/if you get time.

    • Hi Laurie! The helmet is from a war museum I went to while on holiday in Stratford upon Avon. I’m glad you like it, and my about :-) You’re most welcome, and I’ll check out the pics in a bit. Thanks.

    • You’re welcome!

      And thanks, glad you like it!

      Had a look at that article. Some pretty nice looking food on there. I’ll eat anythings except pak-choi and flax seed though, so I’ll be happy with most of your dishes, even the ones that aren’t specially kid friendly :-)

  5. This is the best “About” page I’ve ever seen! I also happen to be a Lego fanatic, and I loved your Lego figures. And you’ve got a nice hand for drawing, so don’t stop building and don’t stop drawing!

  6. I’ve recently switched my food blog over to be self-hosted which I hope will make it more user-friendly in the future. As a result, if you were following Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen via email, WordPress, or using RSS feeds through Google Reader or some other way, you are no longer subscribed. If you wish to continue receiving future posts from my blog you will need to re-subscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience, Teresa.

  7. Hi George, thank you for stopping by In an Irish Home and “liking” my post on Irish Shortbread. I see from your “About” page that you like cooking too. Perhaps you’ll make the shortbread biscuits and let me know how you get on. One quick question for you…how did you ever mind my blog? I’m always curious to know how people find me. Would love your input. Many thanks and continued success with your wonderful blog. Kim

  8. I think you are a very talented young man.
    You write really well and your content is very interesting.
    I enjoyed the Colchester Zoo photographs – I lived near Colchester (West Mersea) when I was little.

  9. Thanks for checking out my blog and my recent Funfetti Chex Mix! I hope you like this spin on the traditional puppy chow, even though you are a huge peanut butter fan!


  10. Fancy blog you got around here! I’m loving the poetry (villain’s lair especially) and what you did with your about me, posting a handwritten note. Nice touch! Great blog! Thanks for taking a look at mine!

  11. Hi there! Thanks for your likes, George! I have only a few readers; what a lovely surprise it is to be appreciated by a kind stranger. Seems like you have made a lot of other bloggers happy as well. Hope this new year treats you great :)

  12. Hi George,
    It’s been a while since someone has commented here. Don’t be shocked, people still look! I am featuring you on my post tomorrow as a Featured Blog. It’s not an award. You don’t have to do anything, but you might want to read what I’m writing about you. I love your blog. Congratulations. Here’s the link if you want to come by tomorrow after 6:00 a.m. PST http://wp.me/p2jC53-14J You admirer, Marsha Lee :)

  13. Thanks for stopping by shuffstatler.wordpress.com (Unordinary Woman)! I enjoyed reading your blog and seeing that we have some interesting things in common. Love your photos of the LEGO mini figs. My husband is almost through with his Star Destroyer I got him for Christmas (yeah, I’m a great gift giver!). I’ll post a photo of it, it’s over four foot long! Take care and keep writing.

  14. Thanks for stopping by Cool Sass! Even from just this page, your blog might just inspire some more Indian and curry recipes on my site :) keep up the great posts!

  15. You are an entirely commendable young man! And if I say so, it must be true. Keep at it. Or, alternatively, live long and prosper. :-)

  16. I am glad you liked my poem (Birdsong) even though it is a little sad. Your own writing is happy and upbeat. I don’t share your love of peanut butter but I do love Indian curries (possibly because I am Indian) and Thai curries as well.

  17. Hi, George! Thanks for stopping by my blog, but I’m sure you will find I have much more intresting posts than how to poach a bloody chicken breast! lol. Your blog, what I have seen of it so far, is fun to look around. I love some of the tunes you put up – how on earth did you hear about the goat whateverers? Wierd name but cool songs! You might like a youtube star called Sam Tsui – his channel is TheSamTsui and he does mostly covers but has a really interesting way of doing them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIoSTbPt_PI really shows the interesting way he and his buddy, Kurt, enable Sam to sing a duet with himself, and this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2RA0vsZXf8&feature=fvsr is my favourite at the moment – a Nelly cover. Well, kiddo, stay real and keep on blogging. Fun, isn’t it! Hugs from Australia. :)

    • You’re very welcome ;-)

      Haha, maybe I will find more interesting things, but I am a beginner at cooking, and was interested to see how to poach a chicken, as I had been intrigued by many competitors attempting this on Masterchef! :D (But I agree, your choc ripple cake is certainly more interesting! Lol :D

      Yeah, cool songs! My Dad likes them, so we listen to it quite a lot, and I came to really like it! :D

      I looked up some of Sam Tsui’s songs! He’s pretty good!

      Thanks for your comment!

  18. Hello George,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my poem Homeless In A Dream.

    You have a wonderfully fun blog and I will enjoy exploring it. I see you are a football fan…favorite team? I am a ManU fan and I’m just loving Van Persie.


  19. I love your colorful heading about yourself. So creative. I love the mornings and the birds as well and I’m a huge fan of Peanut Butter! You have a great talent. Keep it up. I enjoyed visiting!

  20. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog and for the “like” on my post, “Do You Remember”.

    I’ve enjoyed looking around your blog, too. And I hope I will get to read even more in the future. Love your intro page — I love listening to the birds, too. Mourning doves are my favorites, because their calls are so soft and gentle. =)

  21. Your work is really inspiring and i have nominated you for Blog of the year 2012 award. If you do not already know what needs to be done then please go to my last post and follow the instruction. Good luck and keep it up – CLF

  22. Thanks for stopping by my blog …..your blog is cool ..You sir are the real deal and that u stopped by my blog makes me feel awesome..thanks a lot :)

  23. Hi there. I love your introduction, it’s really creative and fun! Thanks for liking my blog. let me know if you try the mince pie recipe!

  24. Hello G-man! First off, thank you for following my blog. You have quite an impressive about page! May you always have the creativity and enthusiasm :)

    Oh, I love Lego too!

  25. Hey, George – thanks for liking all my pomes! Give the old country my regards from the New World! signed, The Hephalump : )

  26. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Love yours! Glad to see you out there! Wonderful that you have things you want to share with the rest of the world! Hope to see more from you!

  27. Thanks for liking The Elephant’s pomes! You and your family are an inspiration – so alive and full of enthusiasm – thank you!

  28. Good morning, G-Man! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog Riding Wild Horses. I’m glad you liked the post about Legos. Legos and Pokemon rule in our house! My daughter is a competitive swimmer and we both love to run. Sounds like you have a lot in common with my kiddos. You have a great blog. I wish you all the best!

  29. Thanks G-man for the follow. My heart is tender today so it made me cry. I love your writing because it is so connected with emotion. I learned something new which is that a feeling is energy in motion. e-motion. Your poems tell me that your cells know that already. Some of us though are rocks and learning how to get moving. Today I had lots of energy moving through me! Yay!

    I follow you on my Rss feed. I mostly adore your poems. Your lego fun reminds me of my boychild who played with them non-stop from when he was a tiny person.

    I think you’re great.

    • You’re very welcome ;-)

      Wow, I never knew that’s what emotion stood for. That’s cool! 8-)

      And I am very touched that you like my poems and that you see the emotions that inspired them! Thank you!! :D

  30. Thanks so much for the ‘like’ on my post about Kindness. Best of luck to you in publishing your work. I’m also thinking of publishing some of mine. Probably not uncommon in the bloggin world, eh? :-) And, BTW, I also love chicken satay!

  31. Your blog is an inspiration – so imaginative! Thank you for checking out my blog. You were the first person to do so and I felt very pleased. I am really impressed with your poetry. My advice for getting published is to enter as many competitions as you can.

  32. Hi Starscraper99!
    I love board games too. When I was growing up back in the Middle Ages that’s all we had! I love to see young people getting out their and blogging with creativity, boldness and authenticity. Keep rockin’! You’ve got skills!
    Warmth and Peace

  33. Thanks for paying a visiting to my blog and liking my poem. Also, everything that is authored by you deserves solid praise, especially your motto captioned on the right side, only a writer with conviction could write. keep it up.

  34. Hey George, you are a very talented young lad. I love your poetry, haven’t read them all as yet, but loved ‘The Wonderous Star’. Tell me was that about a love you had for someone but couldn’t reach or have? Thanks for liking my blog etc. Cheers Rose

  35. So glad you stopped by wordimagery again! Was just looking around a bit…you’re a very creative and thoughtful young man:) Praying the Lord will bless your life today according to His perfect will and purpose, and that He will make His path known to you.


  36. hi george!
    i love your “about me” page.. very interesting… i am looking forward to explore your blog more… =)
    thanks for dropping by my blog and liking “i’m here”.. how on earth did you come upon it anyway? just curious… =)

  37. Hi George — thanks for the interest. Well, this is quite a blog you have here — what an incredibly active series of posts! Considering all the lego stuff here, I think you would be interested by this post that features some moviemaking, including Lego work: http://mediateacher.net/2011/10/06/documentary-about-animation-by-moving-images-student/
    I think it has a sensibility you might enjoy and is a very “done by hand” piece. Keep up the activity here, it is quite astonishing.

  38. Hi George! Thanks for checking out my blog. How did you find it? Just curious. Love that someone your age has a wide variety of interest. What are your favorite things to photograph? Mine run the gamut from still life to sports.

  39. Thank you so much for liking my post “Diary of an art student” on my blog “Ingrid’s Art Melange” George :) You might like my other blog also: Diary of an art student.
    Wishing you Love, Light, and Laughter, Always :)

  40. Hi there, you’ve liked a couple of posts on my blog, and I decided it was about time I checked yours out. I’m glad I did, I’m really liking what I’m seeing so far! And apparently we love a lot of the same things (including, but not limited to, peanut butter). I’ve decided to officially follow your blog.

    So, do you have a favorite Pokémon? (I apologize if someone has already asked you that… or if you’ve already answered that somewhere else and I missed it.)

  41. Thank you for visiting Extraordinart. We appreciate people who like art and leave a note. It helps us doing the best we can. And by the way, we love peanut butter with blueberries on a slice of white toast, while hiking in Alaska. Best,

  42. Dear George,

    I love that you visited my blog.
    I love that you liked my poem “Every Morning Blues”
    I love how creative your blog is!
    I love that you love writing.
    And I love that you love writing poems!


  43. It is a nice feeling to have somebody of your stature to have visited my blog and liked my poem, your following is really fantastic. Keep looking up and one day you sure will be a who’s who of world reknown.

  44. Thank you for liking my post about weird road signs. I’m glad you enjoyed it too. I think I put my comment as a reply in the wrong place the last time I was here. I’m sorry about that. Keep up the good work on your blog. :)

  45. Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog and liking the post Apple Cranberry Pork Roast. Was rather disappointing on my technique of the roll, but it was a delicious meal all the same.
    I appreciate your blog and how it has a little bit of everything to offer your readers. Keep up the good work here and in your life.
    Best regards,
    Chef R3llik.

  46. Hi George……..thanks for the “like” re: my post “Be Encouraged! – God is still God No Matter the Situation”………..for me, that is a truth that helps me keep sane in this unpredictable life………blessings!……..Kim

  47. Thanks for visiting my post, George. You like early morning and birds. I too like birds chirping in early morning. It good to know that you like Indian curry. Have you ever visited India ?

  48. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog corDelectatio and liking my post, “I Scream, You Scream, We All….”.
    Helping mum in the kitchen is how I got my start and then she encouraged me by being my clean up helper. I passed it along to my children and they would plan a menu, I’d take them shopping and then I was banned from the kitchen while they prepared a delish dinner. I even had to dress nicely. THEN, I did the clean up and I’m not sure how they managed to use just ’bout every dish in the kitchen!!!

  49. George! I am flabbergasted. Your interests and creative zeal is second to none. I am sure you will shine in the firmament of writers and creators. Also, thanks for visiting my blog and liking my poem, ‘NIGHT’. Would like to see much of your creations.

  50. Hi George

    Nice to meet you and may I say what a sweetheart you are! You have been by my blog a couple of times and have left me some likes. Thank you very much. I too like peanut butter (I have about 6 jars right now) and I like to make peanut butter and banana sandwiches (sometimes with potato chips inside!).

    If any of you are curious to see which of my latest posts George has liked, here it is: http://knowledgeknut.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/here-is-one-of-those-good-to-know-posts/

    Thank you

  51. I also love peanut butter but not as much as you, I think (it’s first on your list :D). But I love the doodle.
    Thanks for visiting my site and liking my latest post.

  52. Thanks for liking my artwork on the Full Gamut Workshop. I think it’s very cool when people like what you make. I totally enjoy the picture you made showing what you love. Very creative.

  53. Thanks for the “like” re: “Celebrating Bahamian Praise – 2″……..I think the addition of polls to your blog is pretty cool……..some of them bring back fond childhood memories…….all then best……….Kim

  54. I revisited this page because you liked one of my new posts, it’s the batman one, and I just remembered. As a fellow peanut butter fanatic, have you ever tried peanut butter with cream cheese or with any sort of cheese for that matter? (Except blue cheese, maybe not blue cheese.) My friends say I’m nuts, but I love it together.

  55. Thanks for the visit and ‘like’ on poetryproseandpaint. Your foodie likes have attracted a lot of friends :) Yeah I like peanut butter too, great inside celery sticks as well, especially with apple slices.

    • Yeah. I’ve tried apple slices. We have them with peanut butter a lot, but prefer dates and peanut butter. Celery sticks and peanut butter sounds pretty nice :D

      I’ll try it!

      Thanks for your comment :D

  56. Never tried peanut butter with satay sauce…hmm…wonder what it tastes like…
    Love peanut butter and satay sauce but never thought about combining them:)
    Oh and purple RULES!
    Anyway, thanks for the like on my blog. Who wouldn’t like a like?!

    • I think everyone likes getting likes on their posts. I was just having a conversation with a fellow blogger about likes though. Lots of people just like posts to get traffic to their blog. I once put a post up which included 3 pictures. None of the pictures showed up because I’d copy-and-pasted them from my Gmail account, which apparently doesn’t work. And I got 7 likes on that post before realizing the pictures didn’t show up and fixing them. They couldn’t have been genuine likes!

      Thanks for your comment :D

      • Maybe they liked on the basis of sarcasm as they thought you did that on purpose:)
        But anyway, I totally agree that some people ‘like’ just to get traffic on their blogs. Those are the worst bloggers.
        Imagine a blogger, so elated that his post got a like while actually the person who ‘liked’ just wanted traffic. It may be motivation for him and a good one to if his posts are good but if his posts are bad, it will be very demoralising if somebody tells him straight to his face that his posts are just horrible after he got so many likes. First, he will be in denial then he will be super depressed.
        You get what I’m saying as I don’t think I got what I am saying….?

      • I think I get what you’re saying. I don’t really take much notice of likes though because I know that traffic-bloggers could be where they are coming from.

        I love getting comments and follows though, because that shows that they like it enough to actually make an effort to tell me. If they just like, they might have been to my blog and out again in a matter of seconds.

  57. What a gorgeous blog!! So infectious! I LOVE it and am going to follow it!! I am also going to share it with my son who is not-quite-a-teen-but-wishes-to-be-one too. :D
    We love Blokus out here too and I could simply LIVE on peanut butter. Have you tried it with Ritz crackers? Sweet and salty…YUM!
    Thanks for visiting my blog and liking a post!
    Looking forward to reading more of yours! :)

    • Thanks for the follow on my blog! I hope you son likes it too :D

      I’ve tried peanut butter on crackers, but I can’t have wheat, so I’m not sure I can have Ritz Crackers?
      On the topic of peanut butter, have you tried it with dates, or apple slices, or unsulphured apricots?
      One blogger also suggested peanut butter with celery sticks, which sounds like an awesome idea :D

  58. Hi there George! I too am a lover of peanut butter(and some of the other things on your list)! :) Just wanted to stop by and say thank you so much for liking my post “A Pit Full of Purpose”. I hope to see you again and I pray God’s Blessings on you and your family.


  59. George: I absolutely love your blog. It is so alive and so creative. Thank you very much for liking my post, and also for inspiring me with your posts! Happy writing and creating. Best,


    P.S. I love peanut butter, too!

  60. I love the cuteness and fun in your blog presentation here. Many of us I’m sure can relate to much of it. I love animals, my dogs, peanut butter, etc. too. (Ever try mixing peanut butter with mashed banana)? It is really good fixed as a dip, or sandwich spread, and healthy, too. Thanks for stopping by and visiting mine.

  61. It’s nice to read about someone who loves stuff instead of the usual self-conscious negative rants that can be found all over the internet. Good for you!

    Thanks for coming over to my blog and “liking” my most recent post. Please come again–because I suspect you’re good company and also because, like you, I love getting “likes” and comments!

  62. WOW. Best introduction I’ve seen on a blog, ever! So creative and fun! Thanks for stopping by mine, and I can tell I’m going to have fun looking around here on yours! Nice to “meet” you, George!

  63. Your randomness and as you say you are 12 years old motivates me to show this to my grand daughter who has turned 11. I will help her to build a Blog Page and would like her to write randomly which she is so fond of. Now who say learning has a finishing point as we all know it never will. I have learned a lot from you and your introduction. May you grow and prosper and never stop eating what your Mum cooks for you and I have no doubt you will be a MasterChef ( if I am right that is also what you like ;)

  64. Not sure how old you are but have you tried the “Tin Tin” game. We have it on xbox and all my boys 6,9,12,14 love it. You should give it a go if you haven’t already.

  65. Hi there, thanks for liking my post, “when all is said…”. I love peanut butter! I’m a vegetarian and find it goes with a lot of vegetables and is a good substitue for tahini.

  66. Thank you for liking my post. The poems in there I wrote for my girl when she was 7 (she loved Pikachu then) so that I could keep our memorable moments. I didn’t carry on in her teenage years though :(
    I like that you enjoy helping mum in the kitchen!!
    Follow your dream, keep writing. All the best.

    • You split up in her teenage years?

      Yes. I love cooking. We made a Liver and Bacon stew in the slow cooker yesterday. I helped cut the bacon and flour the liver.

      Thank you for your comment!

      • No, I was just too busy dealing with THE teenager and didn’t want to record our anxieties and arguments. I wish I had and maybe we could laugh at it now that she’s sensible and mature! By the way, I am the one helping in the kitchen – she enjoys cooking.
        Lovely to ‘talk’ to you. Good luck with all you do.

  67. This is a little random, but I love pandas too. I have a plush one that I named Kimchi, and yes I know what it means. (Korean fermented vegetables. I’ve never tried it, but I like the culture and it sounded cute.) Your blog seems interesting. It’s even cooler that you’re from the UK. I have to say I’m jealous. Thanks for liking my Gatsby post. :)

  68. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog (Th0ughtscape)!! It was a good thing because it helped me discover your blog- which is AMAZING!! Looking forward to more posts from you…Happy Writing!

  69. I love this..Not so keen on the peanut butter thing (not a northern ireland thing ..we more into our hp sauce and potato bread) but the satay sauce..now your talking my language….over chicken yummmmmmmyyyy…x ps.thanks for liking my blog…it’s a bit random but then again my brain is a bit random at the minute.

  70. I love writing, English tea, American football, baseball, cultivating spider plants, English curry (especially vegetable passanda with sultanas and slivered almonds on top served with garlic naan), chocolate, scones with clotted cream, music, reading, cooking, crocheting, and folks who like my posts!

    Have a lovely day. :)

  71. Hi there- wanted to say thank you for visiting my ‘bench’ (blog) and liking ‘Today’s Blessing’. It is nice to meet you and I look forward to learn more by a stroll through your blog.

  72. Yes, birds are some of my favorites (thanks for liking the “Osprey and Pelican” on my blog) and where I am (the Oregon coast in the U.S.) I get to see quite a few of them. On the day I wrote that poem I was sitting on the beach watching two whales spouting, a score of osprey fishing, about twenty pelicans plumpsing into the water fishing, four or five seals hunting in the surf, one guy surfing and, to top it all, an antique yellow bi-plane was buzzing the beach about 15 meters above my head – and all of this at the same time – with brilliant sunshine glinting off the rollers and quite a breeze – a lot going on! You would have loved it!

  73. Hi George, thanks for the “like” re: my post “Why Worry”. Keep allowing your enthusiasm to shine through your blogging…….shalom!…….Kim

  74. In a recent Scrabble championship a truck driver came up against a university professor. The trucker, a pragmatist, had studied the paperback Scrabble dictionary. The teacher had a whole cloistered career of words. Guess who won? The guy who could also tinker with a diesel engine in the pouring down some uncharted backroad…Doug Blair, Waterloo, Ontario

  75. Thanks for liking my blog ‘born procrastinator!’ I dont know anything about Pokemon or their Cards but I bloody love peanut butter, so you are OK in my book! I order a mahoosive jar of Skippy from th states every xmas, that stuff is the Nuts. Try it with cheese, just slice it up and dip it right in there. :) good luck with the publishing, I hope it is going well! x

  76. It’s amazing too see you get it all out there! Writing out lists and really painting a picture of who you are. That canvas we paint is so grand and large that we need to step back to understand it. I personally love that journey… And enjoy glimpsing the possibilities that yours brings.

  77. Hi George! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed looking around your blog and really enjoyed your sketches. Something I keep telling myself that I am going to do more of but just never seem to get around to it. I’ll be back be back to visit again!

  78. Hello George
    I thought it was about time that I said “hi” (smile)
    Nice blog :) :)
    and thanks for the visits to my site… great appreciate it :) :)

    Hope all is good

  79. Hi George! Now I feel like I already know you…lol. Thanks for liking my blog post. I think it’s great that you’re interested in so many things…you’ll probably live to be 120!

  80. Hi George! Thanks for liking my blog post. I answered some of your polls ^_^ and I do agree, curry is delicious! My favorite is Thai green curry.

    You have a lovely blog. More power!

  81. Well, George — thank for reading and responding with a comment to “Thank you for your support.” I’m guessing by the 99 in your blog name that you’re a teenager, and in the UK. I’m in America and I’m NOT a teen — considerably older, I’m afraid! How have the Olympic Games impacted your life? Any at all? If you live near London, I trust all Americans visiting there have behaved well. I have a story called “Petya i volk” you might enjoy reading. It’s my version of Peter and the Wolf. If you read it, tell me what you think. Click on My Writing by Genre and scroll down to Short Stories. It will be listed under that. It’s not really short, though. Cheers!

    • We haven’t really seen much of the Olympics, I’m afraid! And I don’t live near London, so we haven’t actually gone there.

      Sure, I’ll take a look at your story :-)

      As for me being a teenager, I am, but the 99 isn’t related.

      • I might agree with you, if I hadn’t been such a hellion as a teen. No doubt being a teen when I was was a lot safer than being a teen today, judging from my teenage son!

  82. Hi George,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post on animation. You have a great blog, and I love your ‘About’ image :) Keep sharing!

  83. Hi George, thank you for liking my Iron man Bento post. I think you are a very creative and talented artist, your blog is very interesting and inspirational. And I love Pokemon too, probably I will create a bento with this theme soon. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheers.

  84. Hi George,

    I quite like your blog here, especially the pokemon, which i always found interesting. I’m looking forward to reading more from you!

    Keep writing, stay inspired!

    • Yes, Pokemon are interesting.
      One thing I find quite peculiar (ad sort of a bit disturbing) is that every Pokemon lays eggs, even if they’re mammals, like dogs (mightyena) or cows (miltank).
      Thanks for you comment :-)

  85. Hi George! You have a great blog here, well done. Thanks for liking my post about Chevalier D’Eon. You probably know more about anime than I do, so I am extra glad that you liked it. Best of luck with all of your projects.

  86. Hey George! You have got a pretty interesting world out here. I’m really glad to have a look on it. Keep posting your excellent piece of shares. Have a great day ahead. Cheers.\m/ :)


  87. Hi George, I love your galaxy! Your blog is awesome and you have an amazing following. Congratulations. You’re incredibly inspiring. Thanks so much for liking my post ‘Inner time is limitless’. You made my day :-) Peace and much happiness. Michele

  88. Hello, George; my friend posted a link to your blog and said it was really wonderful–and I have to agree! I am especially enjoying your drawings. I like to make art too, and I admire your skill and enthusiasm! Perhaps just as much, I am enjoying reading about the broad range of things you love. Some of them are new to me, and I’m learning a lot. I know the world holds lots of good things for you, and I wish you the very best and want to thank you for sharing your discoveries, talents, and interests with us. I think it’s very generous of you.

  89. George. What a positive and enthusiastic person you are. I also feel passionate about peanut butter. Have you ever bought peanut butter from a grind your own peanut butter machine? There are peanuts in the top and then the machine grinds them up right in front of you.

    Thanks for being so inspiring. I think I am going to make a list of things I like too.

  90. Hey starscraper99,

    I love your bio…
    I love me mum but I’m not too keen on cooking.
    I love your… mmm… penmanship? Calligraphy? (Your artistry in your handwritten bio.)

    Thanks so much for stopping by and liking my blog! Ciao, for now…

  91. Thanks for visiting my blog and for liking my post “The Nerd Factory vs. Those Sassy Amish”. I am surrounded by Legos and Pokemon. Flowers also. Looking forward to checking out more of your blog!

  92. Hi George,

    Thanks for reading and liking my poem, “Aqua Girl.” Nice to see from your likes that you, too, appreciate the joys of swimming. A cool blog, too!

  93. Hey George the list-lover! Glad to see there are other people out there who like making lists like I do. Guess we are not too strange after all :) Great blog, keep up the good work.

  94. Thanks for stopping by one of my blogs. I am glad you enjoyed today’s post. Since you like the game Carcassonne, you might enjoy the posts about the city. I live about 40 minutes away and blogged about it back in my earlier posts.

  95. Thanks for liking my post. Love it when a like on my blog links me up with some else’s blog :) I came here and got lost (in a very good way) in your blog… so much to enjoy and think about. Cheers!!!

  96. Hi George, I know you are kidding or giving a blanket of politeness because I have no idea what I am doing. I have two sites that are totally mixed up. Soooooo come back in a few years I am sure I will figure it out! LOL

  97. Hey George!
    I love your about you page! Are the drawings your own? Very cool – I love doodling and drawing.
    I appreciate that you took a minute to check out my blog and like my “more faces” page. Thank you Thank you!

  98. Ahh George I’m so glad you liked my post (thanks by the way) because now I’ve seen your blog and I love it. Definitely now in my top 5 favourite blogs, but don’t tell everyone cos they’ll get jealous. Looking forward to your future postsss :)

  99. Thanks for the likes on my Logistics/Martial Arts blog called ITRAYNU. My sons and I appreciate the attention. Let us know if we might be able to assist you one day with the publishing.

  100. Hi George. Thanks for liking my post “Fishing, for Flowers”. I see you also like flowers, and taking photos of them. I will enjoy looking around your site.

  101. Beautiful blog! Thank you for liking my post, “Webbie’s Eyes.” It is a very special painting for me as my cousin recently committed suicide. It has left my heart very heavy but life has to go on….as do I. Your post made me smile. It made me think of the simple pleasures of life. If you liked my painting, check out my website. I have a bunch of my oil paintings on it as well as a lot of photographs that I have taken in the city that I live, San Francisco. I hope you enjoy it and thanks again for stopping by my blog. Have a great rest of your weekend.

    Language is culture in a way.

  105. You love Blokus! I remember learning the game from our host when I was on a group trip to Costa Rica, and from then on I was hooked! Did you know there’s a Blokus 2-GO? It’s a scaled down version for two people.

  106. Hi! Just to say thank you for your recent visit and like. I was a linguist for the Army years ago, but after visiting your site, I realize I don’t speak Pokeman. Fascinating – I wouldn’t know where to start with Pokeman cards!

  107. Quite the diversified blog you have here!

    Thank you for liking my post, “Natasha Trethewey, Cherry Springs State Park And Painting Faces Of The Homeless.”


  108. I like your front page. As I read some of the comments you have answered too, you seem to be hidden under a cloak of darkness, where you pop up once in awhile.. or my creative side is running amock right now..
    Thanks for reading my new and improve blog
