Today is a sunny and almost nice day, the temp is about 52 degrees and no wind, so walked down to the mailbox with just a long sleeve tee shirt and wasn't cold. I have been watching for the UPS truck. Last week I got an e-mail from the lady with the Microsoft Street & Trips offer and she said she had received my e-mail and that the were awaiting a new shipment and would be sending mine this week. So I have decided my giveaway will be a little different than Rick's , instead of giving a two day period, I decided all that would do is give a couple of days of inflated comments that I would have to sort through. so here is what I came up with. I went back to January 1st 2011 and I listed all the bloggers that have left a comment, this indicates a base of people who regularly read the blog, I came up with 42, I subtracted Rick and two others that won in his drawing and that left 38, if I get anyone new between now and whenever I receive the programs in fairness I will add them to the pot. So with 5 programs to giveaway that makes the odds 10-1 instead of over 20-30 to 1. If some of my regular readers don't know if they commented just send a quick comment, I have a list to make the tags for the drawing and I can quick check and add or verify of you are on the list. I just didn't want this to be away of jacking numbers up for a day so this is what my thoughts are on it.Also if you already have the program and don't want to be considered drop me a quick post or e-mail, My e-mail is in the about us or firstname.lastname@example.org , Ok now where is that dang UPS truck..
The week is going by slowly, but I am enjoying reading about our friends who are out and visiting such neat places, hopefully one of these days we will join them, or at least get into weather warm enough to take the trailer to the Lake or on a weekend out . I enjoy just taking it to Iowa and watching the trains go by the campground. Although now fuel will add to the cost of those junkets.
That's about it for today I will let you know when we have the drawing and who the lucky winners will be.
Be safe out there, Sam & Donna...
