I thank you, András and "Big Paszti", for selecting Kanada's Kids as one of the 2008 blog award winners. Thank you for the platform and the podium. I find TINC to be an enabling, thoroughly engaging, and encouraging "place" and deem it a privilege to be among you. This award may seem a minor matter to many, but for me, it is most meaningful.
