And the winner is: Danilo S., whose number was 221; the winning number was 242 (screenshot to the right). It was close, too -- PowerSurferNJ had 220. Thanks to everyone who participated. Tomorrow's prize: a wine accessories gift pack.
Today, to celebrate the blog's fifth’s anniversary, we're giving away a $50 gift card from Wine.com, which has just announced it's offering a free, one-month trial in its $49 annual wine shipping program, called Steward-Ship. A big thanks to the people at Wine.com for the card, which is the third of five daily giveaways. Check out this post to see the prizes for the rest of the week.
Complete contest rules are here. To enter, 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 have to go to the website to enter. I'm getting a fair number of entries via email or in the comment section of other posts -- and even after I announce the winner -- so please be sure to leave your entry in the comment section of this post before 5 p.m. today. You can't win otherwise.
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 prize.
