I was greatly moved to find that I had been awarded this honour by relatively recent blogmate Can Bass 1, who keeps a lively and eclectic blog of ecclesiastic hue, but is touchingly not above consorting with a God-fearing athiest like myself! (Or applying for a job in Asda - good luck CB1!)
I have been thinking all week about who I would like to award in turn! Here, in no particular order, are my favoured few! Ok, well quite a few actually.
