Thinking Blogger Awards

Can someone please give me an accurate definition of 'meme' as my 1985 Oxford English, two volume dictionary, is of no help?

I have been tagged by "abfh" for the Thinking Blogger meme.
Many thank you's for forcing me up the blogging learning curve!

These are the official rules for participation:

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.

That aside

1. I tag "Jambav Parenting" because they were one of the first groups to contact me when I started blogging. Their's is a collective effort, which means that the variety and range of parenting experiences gives me a more balanced perspective. [translation = also, we share a common language, as 'American' is far too tricky to understand]

2. Then "Facing Autism in New Brunswick," because I am a frequent visitor, love the bicameral parliamentary system, which reminds me of home, and I adore Connor even though we've never met. [Should bicameral parliamentary system be in capitals?]

3. I also visit "Kim Stagliano" even though she drives me batty with her irregular postings. She makes me laugh and is out numbered, as I am. Also because, as an aspiring writer, she's cracked it, so I can watch her fly from the wings.

4. "Estee" also gives me great pause for thought, although she also has a nasty habit of posting irregularly - have these people no schedules! [translation = timetables and a clock] She is doing such "sterling stuff" that it knocks my socks off and I don't think I've ever seen her do one of these before.

5. Lastly, a newbie for me, is "John Elder Robinson." Just the name is enough to make me bow, or should that be genuflect? I will be buying his book, "Look me in the eye," [translation = even though it will be a hard back and therefore extravagantly expensive] but in the meantime I am thoroughly enjoying watching the birthing process. [of a book!]

Here's one "meme" definition:

a cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one generation to another by non-genetic means (as by imitation); "memes are the cultural counterpart of genes"

And go here for a host more!

Um, thank you! "Batty" - that translates to extremely happy, yes? ;)

Thanks for the mention and for the persistent humour. [Notice "humour" with a "u"]; [Conor with one "n"] :-)

You should have cautioned some readers though that my site is an autism advocacy not an autism acceptance site. No Autism Hub stuff at Facing Autism in New Brunswick.

Carry On regardless. [I loved the old "Carry On" movies when I was a kid]
