I Did What?!!!

The first thing I noticed, when I got home from work and logged on, was that the number of folk following my blog had almost tripled. I was wondering who some of these folk were. Then I read my email and discovered that I'd been nominated for blogger's "blogs of note." I raced to check this out! Not only did I make this noted list, but so did our wonderful David's authorblog! Wow! What a treat to come home to! To all the well wishers, a hearty, "Thank you!" I've no idea what I did to get this honor but I'm delighted beyond words.

(法新社倫敦四日電) 英國情色大亨芮孟的公司昨av天說成人網站,芮孟日前去世,享壽八十二歲;這位色情身價情色電影上億的房地產開發商,曾經在倫敦推出第一場脫衣舞表演。


芮孟的財產估計達六億五成人電影千萬英鎊(台幣將近四百億成人影片),由於他名下事業大多分布在倫敦夜生活區蘇活區情色,因此擁AV片有「蘇活之王a片」的稱號。


他的公司「成人影片保羅芮孟集團」旗下發行多種情色雜誌,包括部落格「Razzle」、「av男性世界」以及「M部落格ay部落格favdvdair」。


成人電影芮孟本名傑av福瑞成人光碟.安東av女優尼.奎恩,父親為成人網站搬運承包商av女優。芮孟十五歲離開av女優a片校,矢情色視訊言要在表演事業a片留名情色a片下載起先表演讀心術,後來成為巡日本av迴歌舞雜耍表演的製作人。成人網站
色情

許多評論家認情色電影為,他把情色表演帶進主成人影片流社會,一九五九年主持破天荒成人的脫色情a片衣舞表演,後來更靠著sex在蘇活區與倫敦西av色情影片開發房地產賺a片得大筆財富。

有人形容芮成人孟是英國的海色情夫納,地位等同美國的「花花公子」創辦人海夫納。

Lee said...

Thank you, Sóstenis Moura.

I went and read your blog and tried to comment. The language translator didn't cooperate with the verification process of a real live blogger. Here is what I wrote. Sorry I couldn't leave it on your blog. Maybe I should have tried on the untranslated one?

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. You've a very gracious way of expressing yourself.

I had no idea that there was technology capable of translating whole pages into different languages. I hope this evolves further. Sometimes the different logics in language cause something to be lost and finding a meeting of minds is so important to building a world community.

So sorry to read of the girls accidental death. Hope she wasn't a friend of yours.

Peace!
Lee

LOL Hi TheStrangeBlogger, What we are doing is providing input to the world. Or as expressed in Shall We Dance, we are allowing others to witness us and our lives. Just be yourself and write from the heart. Everyone has something of interest about themselves and none of us are "that different".

Cheers!

Lee said...

Hi Coeliac Witch,

Yes, it is nice to find those bright moments. I'm so happy about this that I'm finally beginning to come to terms with it.

You have a nice blog started there. It's real and straight from the heart. That's how I started mine and try to keep it. Keep up the good work!

Cheers!

Lee said...

Hey Cath! Great to see you again! How you doing? Thank you! I'm in agreement with you, David's blog MORE than deserves this award! :-)

Congratulations Lee (That was my mom's name, too)! I am fairly new to blogging - only been at it a short while, but I've been learning a lot, and I love the layout of your blog! If you have any tips for folks like me who don't know a lot about the layout strategies, I'd love to hear! My blog here is linked to my name (I think!) :) I am WAY into personal development too - so, I think the more I can learn about presentation like you have, the better. Thanks so much for a really nice blog. Kath
