One Of My Students Won Today

I'm getting ready to teach my students about advertising. Monday I will discuss premiums. Tuesday I will cover contest, and Wednesday I will cover sweepstakes. The kids have been bugging to learn this stuff for weeks. One of my students was friends with a boy who had me last year. He knew about Blingo from him. He asked me if I'd won from the lately. You see I had won a portable DVD player from them. The kids were all over it wanting to know about how to register. I told them to wait until Wednesday. Of course the one student told the other who then registered for Blingo. He did a Blingo search today at the beginning of class today and BAM he won $100. They gave him a choice between $100 Walmart Card or a $100 in cash. He picked cash.

So if you haven't signed up for BLINGO let me tell you how easy it is to do. First let me invite you to be my BLINGO friend:


Once you sign up, everything else is really easy. Once you've registered simply search. If you search at the right time you can WIN. Each search (up to 25 per day) is a chance to win great prizes instantly. To date Blingo has given away 92,649 prizes, and new prizes are announced on the site every day! They've given away lots of prizes every day. 92,649 to date!

I had hoped that package at the post office was my IPod but it wasn't. It was the Valentine Cards and wouldn't you know they came postage due. The envelope was huge so who wouldn't know you needed more postage? Oh well.

My son Michael just called. He will be leaving for Iraq on Monday. I knew this day would come and now it's here. I feel so incredibly sad. He says he will be gone a year. He says he will be safe but saying and being can be two things.
