I found this in my email this morning:
During the month of July, the International Blogging Recognition Council (IBRC) had the pleasure of reviewing your blog "A Shelter From the Storm". Your blog was referred to IBRC through our Refer-A-Blog program. "I've got nothing to say but it's ok...good morning! - The Beatles" was the topic that the Council reviewed. Based on the review, the Council has recommended that your blog receive IBRC’s designation of “Recognized Blog”. IBRC reserves this honor to those blogs that effectively connects with the audience and promotes the sharing of ideas and experiences.
I don't know who referred me, but if you're one of my 'unknown' readers who comes by and never comments...if you're someone near and dear to me who comments often...thank you.
