Thank to learnitalianwithlucrezia for nominating me for this award. Take a look at her blog to learn a new language (Italian) and she is also learning sign language www.learnitalianwithlucrezia.wordpress.com  I am soooo appreciative she thought of me.  Sometimes I wonder about what I post if it will make a difference to someone.
