Today, to celebrate, the blog's third anniversary, we're giving away a tin of Wine Curmudgeon M&M candies, plus three music CDs, courtesy of Sony Masterworks -- Love by Issac Delgado, Lang Lang Live in Vienna, and My Mexican Soul, with Alondra de la Parra conducting the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas.
To win the prize, pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. If you get the blog via email, you'll have to go to the Web site to enter your number. At about 5 p.m. central today, I'll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose number is closest to the random number wins the prize -- and no, you can't pick a number someone else has picked. I'll post the winner tomorrow. Check out the schedule to see the prizes for the rest of the week.
