JFI July : Eggplant Roundup

Thank you fellow bloggers for participating so enthusiatically in the JFI Eggplant event. An amazing 66 68 entries were recieved by yours truly ... some entries were from bloggers who disliked Eggplant, but participated nevertheless.
Before I do the roundup, I want to thank Indira. This event is her brainchild. I also want to thank fellow bloggers who have hosted JFI before. A special shoutout to the two non-bloggers who participated. I will be posting your entries at the end of this post. Once again, thank you all for participating and making this such a fun event.
