    "Thank you my husband who is just the joy of my life. And India - thank you for giving me peace because only with the peace that you've brought me have I been allowed to go to places that I never even knew I can go. Thank you, I love you and India all my heart.

    Hi, some great hubnuggets, is a really good idea to do this smile I have placed my vote smile

  11. Shirley Anderson profile image72
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    This is mainly a 'bump'.  People have been responding to older threads instead of this one.

    I have to say that Ron Montgomery's acceptance speech is...what's the word I want...

    Anybody got an idea of the perfect word?  smile

    Thanks for voting, everybody!  It's looking like a tense race, with a tie already in place!

  12. Shirley Anderson profile image72
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Another BUMP!  I just bumped an old thread by replying - oops.

    Folks, this is the thread for June 4th - June 10th HubNuggets.

    Does Ron happen to be a gorgeous actress behind that avatar? Halle, baby, you shouldn't recycle your speeches. So uncool. smile

    Shirley, I appreciate your worldliness as I too am bilingual (English AND American lol) and often add the extra "u" in to my words. I did it as a kid, too & was even scolded once or twice by teachers. My Canadian in-laws are proud that I at least have some degree of refinement. big_smile

    1. Shirley Anderson profile image72
      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I'm so glad to read that I am not alone in refined bilingualism. smile

      Gee, I hope Halle, I mean Ron, doesn't get a dup content warning.  C'mon, anyone making that much money should get their publicist to have a new one written, especially for such a momentous event like HubNuggets.  I mean, people are going to want to read this years from now.

      1. B.T. Evilpants profile image59
        B.T. Evilpantsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Here's another bump! Speaking of refined bilingualism, I know all of the important words in French, German, Spanish, Italian and even some Mandarin. Of course, by important words, I mean the ones you shouldn't be using here!

    Your Hubnuggets Hub is sitting at a score of 100 right now, Shirley! Yippeee!

  16. Shirley Anderson profile image72
    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Patty, I just saw that!!  I was flabbergasted, I think it's my first one that's actually hit the 100 mark!  Wow.

    Another wow....we've had 106 votes so far, and we still have a day and a half or so to go.  That's fantastic!  I think it's a record breaker.

    We still have time for the Wannabes to drum up plenty more votes for their hubs.

    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    Hmmm, Cashmere.  I forgot to check just before I came here, but last time I looked I think that Pearldiver had the lead with his Bumble Town story and Wordscribe was very close behind with the Keep Portland Weird hub.

    Thx, Indigenous.  And yes, it is a big moment. smile

    Thanks, Zsuzs!  We try our best to present the great ones, which of course, makes voting difficult but we have to get our fun somehow.  smile

  26. Pearldiver profile image79
    Pearldiverposted 8 years ago

    O that's great ... you've closed the voting.. Did you get the 15 Votes from the Bumble Town Mountain Runners Group?  They should have arrived by now, but it doesn't look like they have been registered if there were only 134.  Maybe there's a headwind... it is quite along way for a carrier pigeon to fly!

    Wow, I just read my email to say that one of my Hubs is now a Hubnugget. What can I say - I've never had a Hubnugget before.  Thanks to everyone who voted for me and the Hubnuggets organizers.
