Mystery Blogger Award 8


Mystery Blogger Award 8

I am rolling with the Bear theme today!

My sincere thanks and appreciation go to Ilene of The Cancer Bus for gifting me the Mystery Blogger Award.

Ilene is both a writer and a poet, as well as a woman on a spiritual journey. Ilene has metastatic breat cancer. She writes an honest and down to earth, matter of fact blog but equally offers her readership love, support, friendship and positivity to strangers and friends alike.

To quote her directly … This, my words, my blog, my life log – take what you need, come back and visit, and leave a message I will return your call as soon as I can.

So please do take the time to visit her blog, and spend some time there.

So? What is the Mystery Award?

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

3 Things About Yourself!

My star sign is Taurus and l am about 95% full of bull! Make of that as you will!

I have a soft spot for Teddy Bears!

Yogi Bear and Boo Boo Bear was one of my favourite cartoons as a child.


Answer Ilene’s 5 Questions

Write a haiku about being nominated for a blogger award and title the haiku with the cartoon character with whom you most relate.

I can’t do Haiku, it’s not a genre l am into, however l have written a small poem to answer this question.



Yogi and Boo Boo Bear’s Big Break

“Yogi, it’s an award, it’s an award!”

“Hang tight little Boo Boo, what are you on about?”

“The Mystery Blogger Yogi, we’re on board!”

“Really, well who gave us the shout?”

“Ilene from The Cancer Bus, that’s who!”

“You sure that’s one hell of a hullabaloo!”

“No, it’s true look over here!”

“How‘s that possible, it’s not like l’m smart like Shakesbeare?”

“Oh Yogi, it doesn’t matter it’s for us as a pair!”

“Ah right Boo Boo, that’s cos we’re smarter than the average bear!”


What’s your superpower and how do you use it for good not evil?


Given that the question specifically asks for a non evil superpower – l  would choose the power to heal all pain.


Do you believe in a spiritual world or some kind of afterlife? If yes describe, if not why do you believe this is all there ?


During my travels throughout life, l have seen many things that l simply cannot account for. I can NOT place these things under any one religion and l myself do not follow a religion, l am by choice an agnostic. Having said this I have a belief not unique to me alone, that centres more around the strange phenomena of ‘supernature’ but do not easily dismiss ‘supernatural’. I also cannot describe my belief or an after-life because each person’s belief is reflective upon their own journey. What their mind conjures up as safe and as sanctuary is unique to them and them alone.


What’s the best place in the world you’ve ever been and why should anyone go there? Convince me. Plane tickets are a good way to convince me.


This is a very difficult question to answer- because each person has a unique blend of factors that they take into consideration when choosing a destination to visit or holiday in. Their health, frame of mind, personality and so forth determine where they think they should go. Often people suggest places that they have loved, and many a time it turns out to not be a favourite place of another. I would say the best place to go first is onlne and check out a really good destination site and read reviews of many travellers. Places l would love to visit such as India and China and such may not appeal to many others.


What are the top 10 songs that make you feel good when you’re down, or inspire you, or you just love to listen to anytime or all the time.


I don’t really have ten songs unique to my listening if l am down, as l find l will listen to a selection of songs as l tend to watch a movie, however three that always put me into a better frame of mind are …


My 5 Questions

Which ‘urban legend’ scares you the most?

Would you go back in time? To change anything in your life if so what would it be?

Are we truly alone in the Universe?

Do you want to be buried or cremated?

What’s your favorite sound?



I choose to gift the Mystery Blogger Award forwards to …

You can opt out of all participation and simply accept my gift of the Mystery Blogger Award to you as a compliment from my blog to yours, in celebration to your style, creativity and imagination or should you wish you can further ‘gift’ the award or simply answer the questions – that choice is yours.

  1. Love your expedition, eloquence, and especially Prince and Yogi. I appreciate your thoughtful answers and I hope your readers may go by the Cancer Bus stop for a ride.

    In hope of raising awareness for metastatic cancer and the importance of early detection as the best prevention-my burgeoning readership may be indicative of how many lives cancer effects. It’s a pandemic and in our mode of telegraphing our message via blog, it takes work and dedication to not only write but to find and to read our musings and not so amusings.

    I’ve been to both India and China and I can say to anyone who loves a culture shift to shake up your reality tunnel thems the places to explore!

    Mumbai, Bangalor, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong,…
    I might add Thailand and the Philippines as well as Indonesia to your list. Bali is heaven on earth, but if a taxi driver says yes to every place you want to go and claims to know where it is, immediately get out of the cab. And always learn hello, please, thank you, where’s the bathroom, goodnight and the cultural bad form and good form points prior to a trip. A book I recommend to anyone hitting Asia is “Point It” – inwhich you point to a photo in a small book of what you want or need. Everything is in it you could think of in a pocket sized color glossy printed pamphlet. No kidding.

    Point it: Traveller’s Language Kit – The Original Picture Dictionary – Bigger and Better (English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Russian Edition)

    1. Thank you, l hope l did you justice.

      I lived in Malaysia for a couple of years, and l used to have a company that was heavily involved in Thailand and Cambodia and yes, those two are most assuredly eye openers.

      Thanks for the heads up Ilene with the Point It Book, l do like the sound of that 🙂

      1. Justice is well served – any time you take a bit of time to communicate even if the whole thing is kinda contrived, but ultimately I suppose exists to get ourselves more engaged with people we like by the fact of their writing. So thank you for simply connecting. It’s really IMHO why we write our blogs is for that very reason.
