My THOUGHTS of the HUG Award!

I have three words to describe this award, sickening, dreadful, depressing! I am glad to accept this award, which has been given to me by The Island Traveler. Unfortunately, because I feel that I do too much, while others don’t do enough, I can’t nominate anybody. I have to brake a few rules this time. I have no choice. Do you think anybody else feeds cupcakes to the birds like I do? I betcha that nobody does. So far, when I see the words “poverty” and “hunger” anywhere, I can’t help but just feel sad. My mom is trying to donate cupcakes to the Red Cross, but it is hard to do when the Red Cross doesn’t respond to her calls. It seems like there is always lost hope somewhere else. Nobody can sustain everybody. That’s the biggest problem in our society. Sorry, but this award goes to me and no-one else.

Alright, I have recently decided to share this award to the Island Traveler. He gave me a good reason, since he fed french fries to the seagulls. They typically eat french fries a lot, so they must have really wanted his fries. They ate them right on his plate, and I give him credit for them getting that close. I thank him for making that decision. Just for the record, seagulls have flown from beach to beach for whatever foods they eat in the wild, and for leftovers that people drop too along the way. They have an instinct of what they need to find. Seagulls are typical for that, and they’ll always be around. I don’t blame them for eating our food, I really don’t.

Here are the rules of the award:

1.  If you receive a HUG Award©, you may nominate others who also meet the guidelines for the award.

2.  Nominees may only receive the HUG Award© one time.

3.  You may nominate as many people, websites, or blogs as you want to nominate to receive the award.

4. Upon receipt of the award, you nominate at least one other person.  The award is also not time limited, so you can nominate new people or sites you encounter in the future.

5. You contact your nominees and tell them that you have nominated them for the  HUG Award©.  AND…

6.  Please link this page:  When you contact your nominees for the award, please include a link to this page, they will have the same information you received about the award.  Then, they also can perpetuate the award by nominating others.  AND…

7.  Please post a comment on this page at 

8.  You may print a copy of the HUG Award© Guidelines for people you nominate, who do not have a website, blog, or social media account to which they can paste award and Guidelines.  If they have email, you may email them a copy of the original HUG Award© and original Hug Award©Guidelines.

Please visit for more details.

It’s not like this matters, since TheIslandTraveler, which is the one who gave me this award, already mentioned the rules on his blog. If you feel that you should deserve this award, please comment on this and share any bird-feeding activities you have done in the past year. When I say bird-feeding, I mean people-food, got that? That would make me feel so much better and I will gladly pass this award to you too.

  2. Can you squeeze one more space for the award… that will be me. I share the award with , you share it with…now that’s 2 people making a difference no matter how small it may be. You’ll be amaze how many people love birds and similar creatures, they may not feed them with the delicious cupcakes but they feed them with cookies, bread and more. I few the sea gulls with french fries…partly because it already flown itself towards me and started nibbling the fries on plate…should have thought about that when I wanted to eat outside the outdoors by the beach….fun though! Stay cool and wishing you and your family the best…

      Of course I’ll add you in. That sounds so great that you are feeding the seagulls french fries. That is because there are humans constantly in their territory, so they have gotten used to you enough. I can barely believe that a seagull ate right out of your plate! Usually, I only see them eat on the sand…or the trash. If I were to see a seagull eat right out of my plate, I would definitely take in the moment. That would be such a real treat for me to see. Okay, you and ONLY you is on the list. Remember though, seagulls fly around all the time, so they are constantly using their energy. That is why you won’t see other birds such as sparrows flying as much. It takes a lot of energy to fly around. Keep feeding those birds, and next time you are walking outside and see a bird, if you don’t finish eating something, throw it aside, and once you start walking away, look behind you, and it may start eating it.

  3. I fed the sea gulls….on my plate….sorry for all the wrong spelling….just woke up my friend!
