Give-Away…

Stuff from India…

…I don’t know if it’s necessarily good stuff; but it’s free.  Read on.

I started this blog in June of 2008 as something to do while my husband traveled 50% of the time for his job.  Since then there have been times where I have posted religiously and others where I was just too busy with real life to do so.  Since my move to India I’ve been posting more frequently and find that I have quite a few people following my adventure. 

I haven’t done a Give-Away or contest in quite some time and figure now’s as good a time as any to change that.  Part of the reason is to share a taste of India, and the other is to flush some of you out of the woodwork.  Yeah, I know there are quite a few people reading that don’t comment here or on FaceBook.  I don’t know who you all are, but my StatCounter shows me how many visitors I get.

So here’s how this Give-Away is going to work.  I have three packages of goodies from India; that means three winners.  For a chance at winning one, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post by 7:00 pm CST, Monday, December 6th.  It doesn’t matter what you say.  It can be a simple hello, or you can tell me I’m crazy for moving to India, or that you think lima beans are yucky.  Just leave a comment and three winners will be picked randomly and announced the next day. 

Don’t know how to leave a comment?  It’s easy peasy:

First: Click on ‘Comment’ at the bottom of this post.
Second: Write your comment in the large box.
Third: Type in the ‘Word Verification’
Fourth: Click on ‘Name/URL’ and type in your name.

Now if you absolutely can not figure this out you can email your comment to: Lfabsits (AT) yahoo (DOT) com.

I’ll be using a Random Generator if all entries are on this post.  In the case where some are sent via email I will have my grandchildren draw the names from a hat…or a bowl…or whatever is handy at the time.

Good luck and don’t be shy.

** Time's Up.

Even though I haven't consistently commented lately (frakking kids!) I'm enjoying your adventure. Seriously, I may have to use some Delta Skymiles to visit at some point! Keep writing and I'll keep reading and commenting when I can. :)

Wait. You mean you're not sending me a package regardless? Harumph.

I will confess, I have been reading you since MySpace days! I commented something about worst jobs or something WAY back in maybe 2007!

I am enjoying your new adventure though and will comment more often!

I have been reading your blogs and find them quite interesting, especially since my oldest daughter will be visiting for 3 weeks after Christmas -she is going through a program at University of Iowa for Music/Dance and looking forward to it. I'm not quite sure I share her enthusiasm.

I comment all the time and love your Indian adventures since I work long distance with a group of (supposed) writers in India. Living your adventure vicariously. Love Indian food too. Hope you're feeling much better!

Goodies from India? Does that include those little bells I used to buy at gift shops. I don't remember what they were called. Glad to hear the vertigo is just that not something chronic. The ear inflammation..not such good news. Hope the other ear is going to be OK.
