Five Funky Fridays

"Don't stop for nobody
This time I'll keep my feet on solid ground
Now I understand myself when I'm down
Like the sweet sound of hip music
There'll always be something new"

Onward! to another bloggerversary :0)

Hi Ridwan,

Your blog sets the bar very high. It is still where I start my day and I am not alone (Joel says hello too and sorry about the Springboks).

Keep writing and pushing buttons my smart brother. We love you.


Ridwan said...

Hola Charmaine:

It is always great to hear from you and Joel.

And thank you kindly for your words about this ol' blog.

I am humbled 'cause you are one of the smartest people I know.

Tell Joel I wish him and his All Blacks well :0)

There are a lot of folks here in SA who want the All Blacks to win as you know.

Count me in. The "chokers" label needs to vamoose.

Take care my sista. I miss you and luv you both.

Hi there Lauren:

It amazes me too that the blog is still around.

I have learned a lot over the five funky big ones - and did so by just writing without pretense(s).

I did not tell you that a colleague of mine has my blog listed in his suggested readings section of his Comparative Politics syllabus.

He said a student even cited the blog in a writing exercise - how does one footnote a blog? ;0)

Made me smile but also worry about those cringe worthy and sappy posts.

Thank you for your kind words Lauren - salute indeed sista.

Greetings Big Brutha Dr.,

I truly appreciate your blog brutha because it does set a high bar as the sister Charmaine stated. It has allowed me to borrow some ideas and concepts from you (as I always have) :-) for my scholarship, life, & blog. Keep pontificating and projecting greatness dear brutha because The Creator has given you power and authority to do so!

ASA & Many Blessings,

Bro. Dubie
