It's rare that I win a contest but lately my luck has improved. First I won a nice assortment of "green" items by commenting on a post on Terry's blog.

Then I entered a contest on Laloo's Facebook page. Now this was exciting to win! Laloo's makes goat milk ice cream and their chocolate is heavenly! Unfortunately I have not been able to buy it in Virginia for about a year! I'm allergic to something in cow's milk (although not lactose) and I really miss ice cream. So when this box showed up on my door step, steaming from the dry ice that kept it cold, I just about drooled at the sight of the contents. I'd order more if the shipping weren't so expensive (over forty bucks).

And finally, Frank won a door prize at a car show. It's a printed tee shirt. He doesn't wear bright shirts but this one has a cool subject: a squirrel!


  1. Wow... you should enter more often. I haven't had time to enter many lately, but when I used to enter, I won a lot of times. One time I won a $300 Remington Shaver for my Husband.

  2. Congratulations to you both on your wins! Pretty cool!
