Give this girl five stars

It's early... I'm up working on some great photos from yesterday for i live here: SF, so while I'm doing that I wanted to ask a favor of you.

A few months ago, I wrote about my blogging friend Sallycat in Buenos Aires. She is the star of this lovely video, which to me, encapsulates a lot of what tango really is. Also, Sally's got to be one of the loveliest and most thoughtful people and writers on the planet. Her blog is truly a gift, whether you are a tango dancer or not.



Her blog, Sallycatway, is a contender for The World's Best Bloggers (South America section). Won't you please go there now and give her a vote? She's dropped to second place but I'm sure you could help her get back to #1.

You can click here to vote. Voting ends on March 16 so don't wait...

Both Sallycat and I thank you! Happy weekend.

UPDATE 11:12am: Thank you to those of you who have already voted... and let's keep those votes coming for Sallycat!

Here's a little happy note for you from Buenos Aires...

My dearest TB

As your friend Relyn has said, WHAT A FRIEND YOU ARE! How many folks would go out of their way to support and champion fellow lovers of life, whom they have only ever met in cyberspace, so generously? I am very touched. And I thank you.

As you know, I type every one of my blog posts in Buenos Aires looking straight at your beautiful photograph of San Francisco on the wall in front of me. 'Follow your heart freely,' it speaks to me.

I want to thank your lovely readers too, for taking a moment to vote for Sallycat's Adventures. This competition is a step on the way to me fulfilling one of my dreams: to help more people get the very best out of their visit to Buenos Aires or out of the experience of relocating to Argentina, or indeed to any other land... and to inspire a few more folk to live their own dreams with gusto!

Thank you, you super guys and girls who hang out with Tangobaby. You are the best, and if you ever get to visit BsAs, make sure you let me know you are coming!

Back after my trip to the dairy... making it back to show my support. I am happy I came back and got to see the lovely note. You are an outstanding person - real/genuine :)

I am back after voting - get over there everyone who feels led to go because tango's dear friend is literally a vote away from being back on top.....

Hey! Just wanted to check in with you because I know I haven't talked to you in a while. I'm still following your blog and still in awe of your beautiful photographs and interesting portraits of our fellow San Franciscans. Keep up the great work! I continue to be inspired by your creativity and drive.

Fun stuff. And I love that you're supporting other bloggers. Got my vote. :)

Teri and the cats of Furrydance March 15, 2009 at 6:22 PM  

I voted too! Let sallycat know that because of her wonderful tango videos, my petsitters son won a dance contest at his grade school doing the tango...he really got inspired!
