Of Blog Awards and Paintings

Notes & Lists

By popular request, Dog-dog is now on Twitter. Long-Grass has no plans to follow suit.
My background on Twitter made it onto the Top 10 list for January on the Twitter Backgrounds Gallery, and the #1 for Fine Arts Theme
My Irish KC made it from the very long nominated list to the (not too long) longlist [...]
