Looks like Buddy has already started. Cute little icon! Someone requested we start a new contest thread for each month. So I will start one for March and send out the e-mail.

I would like to hear from our participants on this thread. We can run this contest each month through May and then pick it up again in Sept. or Oct. giving us the summer off. Or we can do it each month year round.

Let us know what you think.

If you would, please read my blog - It's very important that this information get's out.
We are all trying to lose weight but get healthier too. It is titled - 13 Banned Foods Still Allowed in the U.S.
I went grocery shopping and found foods I normally buy contained these poisons!! Valentine Candy, cheese sauce for your chips, cereal, breads, etc. contained them!!
We are wondering why we have joint issues, cancers, diseases, etc.
I even had the meat manager printing the list - he was very interested!
You do not need to respond - I'm not looking for the attention - We need to be aware of what we are eating. Can you imagine eating the rubber from a shoe? Or Tar?
Also at the bottom of the page is a list of items poisonous to your pets!
Thank you!!

Can I make a suggestion, actually?

Could you start a new thread for this month's contest so that we can see more clearly who is participating in this specific month?

I just think that if you don't this thread will get so long that peeps could end up very confused at to what is happening and who is participating.

yes, you can get a head start on it! Hopefully I will remember to send the team e-mail out tommorow. I am subbing @ the lie-berry so it won't be till the evening when I can get on. A couple of the new ones voted this time, maybe they will join us in decorating!

Thank you all for the Big Blue "She Suited Up & Showed" ribbon for Spark Page decor. (Not to be confused with the ever-popular Spark Page Dubious Decorum Award.) That's so nice. 'Specially since I had to dodge that pesky deadline with a cheesy write-in appeal. That's so nice. I thank you again. % )

I used to hate art in school. Couldn't draw a good stick figure even! I took up scrapbooking a few years ago, you don't have to create anything, just make a collage of stuff others have created. Works for me. I don't see you enrolling in a scrapbook class though Popeye so you can be on profile from this exercise.

How to vote? Where is the ballot box? Is this a mail-in ballot? Can I phone it in? Can I vote On line?

[Just the first two questions are real...]

Well, Popeye...we don't have any misbehaving noobs. So relax the lips that you've pulled back into a snarl.

Thanks for stepping aside, and letting those more qualified (aka we who have absolutely NO qualifications) do the voting.

OK, I got the team email "It's Time to Vote".

Since I slept through the announcement that there was even a contest, I thought the email was a sarcastic comment on the recent inauguration.

Boy was I surprised (and just a teensy bit disappointed)!

If I had any right-brain talent, it has all been associated with writing and communication. Nothing in the Arts category has ever manifested. Even though I was a professional photographer, I have to confess that I was more of a mechanic then an artist. I could teach and I have four of my 'mentee's' with successful photography businesses within a 15 mile radius. I have a number of photographs that look really inspired, but they were all just happenstance.

Lacking the talent to appreciate art in other formats, I don't feel qualified to vote.

I think you are all winners.

I think I must have been away from the team for too long - there are so many new (to me) members. I was shocked.

If the members with the longer tenures would just let me know which of our new members I should just be sarcastic with, rather then the Viciously Sarcastic I am capable of being, I would sincerely appreciate it. I don't want to hurt feelings or make anyone cry - unless they deserve it.

To all the new members, a hearty welcome. Regardless of what you have heard about the Ultimate Sarcastic, Popeye the Scrooge, er ....., Turtle, I am a nice, gentle, laid back old geezer. Depending on whether you believe it is good or bad, I have never been described as a 'Dirty Old Man (DOM)'. Of course, my thoughts remain my own and are rated from "G" to "XXX". Sometimes, you just have to guess how I meant a comment (regardless, I am laughing inside).

I'm looking forward to reacting with each of you, aren't I?

Well - I thought I had entered this by redoing my page after being inspired by Gardenchris. I guess I posted my entry before December was history - I can be a mite slow on the uptake. Anarchy Unlimited (that would be me) encourages write-ins! % )

To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.

I thought KJDINSC 's page did have a MLK,jr theme to it? That's what it looked like to me??

or maybe I'm not awake yet???

COFEEEEEEEE!?

oh wait, maybe I should change to a coffee theme? Although what coffee has to do with January that it doesn't already have to do with the rest of the months of the year, i'd be hard press to identify. Hmmm

Okay. I guess I'm In. I did change things around. My legs are killing me so I need to get away from the computer...

But anyway it's sort of, um. a different, sort of um... not really "happy new year" but kinda sorta maybe a more motivational (to me) look at things I need to do more of this next year? Does that make sense? Yea, well, me neither, but oh well....

Okay so you all can go look at my blogpage and crack up laughing....I'm not responsible for any liquids that splurt through your nose, so put the drink down first!!

That is why it says let us know what you are celebrating or who you are honoring. I often do my page up to honor the military.
