Diamonds & Gold Blogathon: The men

So here we are - this is part one of the blogathon, where all day today, I'll post the links to the pieces about the men. All you gotta do is put your link in the comments section and I'll put them up onto this page for all to see. If your post is about the women, Paddy will take them beginning tomorrow.

On behalf of Paddy and myself, I want to once again thank everybody who's participating, everyone who tweeted about it, everyone who linked to it on Facebook - seriously, this is the first blogathon I've had a hand in running that was not only this big, but this well promoted, and I truly, truly appreciate all the support.

In case you missed it, here's my post, on the movie Cocoon.

  6. Rich, my apologies...I just realized I completely forgot about the blogathon! It's just as well though, I never did tell you who was my choice. It looks like you had a great turn out anyway and there are alot of great choices..I'm going to read some of them now. Sorry about missing the event...I was just too distracted this whole month.

  7. It's alright... like you said, we did get a good turnout. Maybe next time?
