Great minds think alike...

Well, thanks go to Karoline over at Karoline in the Morning who appears to have had a rush of blood to her head and tagged me for a Thinking Blogger Award. Wow!

As I am sure you know, this meme started here in February 2007. Whether you agree with memes or not, no-one can deny it is nice to be noticed sometimes.

Karoline had this to say about my humble 'fatblog' :-
'i am presenting you with this little award, the thinking blogger award..for provoking thoughts on spirituality and keeping a healthy sanctuary within ourselves. you are honest and forthright, and more delightfully, human. i hope that this inspires you to continue on, in your quest for a good change.'

and also here on her own blog.

Now, the rules of this game are simply these :-

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,

3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Now, I have only been at this blogging lark for a few short months so my knowledge of what is out there is fairly limited. I will spend the next week judging the blogs I like now and use this as an opportunity to seek others out there worthy of this recognition.

By the way, the title of this post is one of my favourite English proverbs (is it a proverb or an idiom, maybe just a plain old phase, oxymoron anyone?) but very few people seem to know the rest of it. It concludes...but fools seldom differ! Makes you think, doesn't it!

Anyway, thanks again Karoline, as the greatest thinker I know of once said....

Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. Buddha
