  25. Hello, I came here via a link from another blog. Nice site! Just wanted to comment to a few blogs about your giveaways. I choose not to participate on Facebook. It's not that I don't know how. I use my computer everyday and work from my computer everyday. I have made a consious decision not to do Facebook. I have seen some not-so-good things come from Facebook for middle schoolers as well as adults. Having said that...I know it's my decision...but it makes it hard to participate in some blogs. Not all of us out here in cyber space want to have a facebook page. I look forward to reading past posts of your blog. God bless!

  28. I would definitely save it until we could get us a new house and buy things I needed for the house. Such a great give away!

  29. I am getting married next year and could really use this for decorating the reception hall!!

  30. My hubby and I are finally taking our first vacation by ourselves ever. We have been together 7 years. Our vacation is in late June and thus would definitely help us enjoy ourselves!

  44. I would probably either put the money towards bills or towards starting my small business I've been needing a little money to get going! Things have been rough financially and it would just be such a blessing! :)

  45. I have the issue fixed on publishing the labels. In some way, I got a top margin on page one that was non-standard (smaller) than the various
    other web pages. This was tossing every tag off.
    I could not locate a method of deleting the first page just, so I reduced and pasted
    each address into a new tag file. The good result was excellent and the
    top frame on every one of the pages were great.

  65. Really practical information, I have always chosen laser printers since they are much less expensive to make use of,
    once you make the initial financial investment. Toner cartrages are much
    more expensive however outlast several several inkjet cartrages and are much less untidy to
    make use of. You could establish your laser printer to print in grayscale
    and use less of the color toner, I only make use
    of colour when publishing images.
