Canadian Blog Award

While the Woodshed has once again been tragically overlooked by the members of the academy (in other words I never got around to nominating myself or anyone else for that matter) The Galloping Beaver, where I make my small occasional contribution is nominated in several categories, as are a number of other blogs on the blogroll. There are two rounds of voting to narrow the lists in each category down to a more reasonable number. While none of us around here really care whether we win or not, I'd hate to see the gloating that will go on in certain quarters if the flying monkey hordes of the right manage to get certain blogs voted in as winners. GO VOTE NOW and keep the right-wingnuts from freeping the whole thing.
