A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

What's the Lucky Number?

Time to draw the giveaway prize!

Here is the list of entries (you'll need to poke it to make it big enough to read):

Each entrant is listed under their chosen number.  The two in blue failed to nominate a number, so I used Random.org to assign them one.

I then generated one more random number to select the "finalists".  The winning number was . . . Seven!

This meant that Iris, Fabiola, Lainie, Carmen and Diane all had a chance to be the ultimate winner.  I entered their names into Random.org's list randomiser to pick the winner.

The name randomly placed on the top of the list was . . . . Carmen!

Congratulations Carmen.  Please send me your postal address in an email to celestial@y7mail.com so I can send your prize to you.

And now at long last, here is what Carmen has won:

It's a selection of "Witches Essentials" including a straw hat in mint green, a small cauldron full of brew, a unicorn horn and a slightly wonky looking frog.  As a consolation to those who didn't win I'll be adding a tutorial describing how to make your own witches hat from straw braid soon.
