I will award these to the people whose blogs I always read and were created by Frances (Carpet Full of Holes).
This is quite difficult awarding these awards as it is very difficult to choose who gets what as each person's blog is a blog masterclass in its own way on its own subjects. However, it's a bit of a cop out to award everybody everything so -
Intellectually stimulating - Sweet Irene (who is a great thinker and even got me onto a Dutch website looking at Van Gogh pictures once. Through her I found out about Jung.)
Intellectually stimulating - Rima (found out all sort of things I never knew about art - some great pictures)
Apple for Teacher - Frances (great blog, Frances)
Apple for Teacher - Debi (amazing photos, very clever and imaginative captions)
Apple for Teacher - Bobbie (you can see where Debi got it from)
Intellectually stimulating - Laurie (want to know about the Russia and the plight of the Finns, or being watched by KGB agents?)
