The world famous "Laughing Horse" Blog Awards Ceremony is again scheduled for the last day of this year. For the first time ever, the event will take place on another continent - North America to be precise. More specifically the spotlight will be upon "Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern" 907 N. Goldenrod Road, Orlando, Florida. This luxury establishment has traditionally always been popular with Hell's Angels and other members of the Floridian motorcycling fraternity but Betty herself has assured the awards organising committee that "her boys" will absent themselves on New Year's Eve so that bloggers from around the world may have the exclusive venue entirely to themselves.
Of course there is plenty of hotel accommodation in Orlando and so attendees will have no problem booking rooms. Please note that there are no rooms available at "Betty's Laughing Horse Tavern".
The committee did consider holding this year's prestigious red carpet event at "The .Laughing Horse Saloon" in Thompsonville, Michigan but the area is so cold at this time of year that visitors would risk frostbite. In addition, it was noted that the saloon attracts some gun toting hunters and woodsmen who believe that Barack Obama is Osama bin Laden in disguise and that Adam and Eve really existed. Orlando seemed a much more attractive option.
Sheffield-based graphics company Brightstar have been awarded the widget contract this year. Their brief is to come up with an original design which incorporates a picture of a laughing horse. To be frank, Brightstar have dragged their heels over this job and it was only this morning when they forwarded two possible widget images for consideration. We have to let them know by tomorrow so that the widget design can be rapidly advanced ahead of the great day. Which should we pick? Left or right?
