And the winner is: CBC Mike, who selected 222; the winning number was 248 (screen shot to the right). Thanks to everyone who participated. This was a record-setting birthday week, and I am most grateful.
Today, to celebrate the blog’s eighth anniversary, we’re giving away two autographed copies of the cheap wine book. This is the last birthday week giveaway. Thanks to everyone who participated. Few things make me as happy as giving the prizes away during birthday week. Your enthusiasm reminds me why I do this.
Complete contest rules are here. Pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. You can’t pick a number someone else has picked, and you need to leave your guess in the comments section of this post — no email entries or entries on other posts. Unless the number is in the comments section of this post, the entry won’t count.
If you get the blog via email or RSS, you need to go to this post on the website to enter (click the link to get there). At about 5 p.m. central today, I’ll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose entry is closest to that number gets the gift pack.
