Marian Hill's style as "fused R&B, elec-

respected author of children's books,
Sherry is also a professional musician
who plays and teaches violin, viola
and piano. (Meanwhile, I'm still
learning how to wave bye-bye.)
Sherry has become one of my
most faithful friends, one who
reminds me there is a world
of great music beyond the
narrow scope of pop and
rock, and that some of
it is being made by
based on a mutual love of music and an
abundance of shared humor. Chris and
I enjoy introducing new and different
artists to each other. We are the kind
trivia related to the music. I always
learn a lot when I hop into Chris's
Friday Time Machine.
I admire her for thinking outside the box and
having an extremely wide range of interests
that go far beyond music to include writing,
poetry, travel, fine dining, cooking and an
endless series of educational experiences.
Jessica isn't afraid to post rap and rock,
and that makes her a kindred spirit.
Cathy Kennedy and Jeffrey Scott
would all be included on the above list
had they not already tagged me for
this award. All four are what I call
"full service bloggers" and "full
service friends." They connect
with me by blog and by email
and take a genuine interest
in who I am and what I am
doing. Their taste in music
is very similar to mine which
is always a plus. I couldn't ask
for better friends in the blogging
community than Michele, Debbie,
Cathy and Jeffrey. Thank you again,
all four of you, for bestowing
this special honor on me!
