What a week!!   Once again it was practically impossible to select just ten for the Top Ten this week.  I nearly resorted to putting names in a hat and drawing them out.  After an entire day of see-sawing back and forth between posts we have come to a consensus.  Thanks for all of your input... Randall, Heather and Gator.  I'm sure glad we're a team because there was no way I could have made the choices alone.

  1. Wow, I made the cut! Thank you guys... I know it couldn't have been easy as there were sooo many wonderful shots. I am honored, truly.

    I wish I were able to view more over the past few days, but the lack of internet at home is making it difficult.

  6. There is much more within this theme this week, as it was a time in which I believe that all came together with examples that just perhaps it was something that we all gave our views on the downside of things that are taking place within our world right here and right now.

    ReplyDelete
  74. the competition is closed, but I am aware that for anyone to see the poll results they do have to cast a vote...so thats the reason the numbers may change over the next week or so...

    I have closed the poll now though and I guess its something we should do at the end of each poll day!
