The winner is!

Sorry I could not get to the computer yesterday. We received nearly a foot of snow so we (in the country) were snowed in until snow plows could get through. That meant my husband was on the computer constantly checking his fantasy football numbers when Christopher wasn't chatting with friends online who were also snowbound. I will get caught up as this week continues.

I saw this morning that we had 46 comments so I wrote out numbers 1 - 46 on paper scraps, placed them in a bowl, tossed them around like a salad, and drew one out...

The winner is #44, HEATHER!

Heather's blog is A Place of Quiet Rest.

Wow, congratulations! I didn't see what time you commented but you came in "whistling Dixie" so to speak. :)

Use the Hotmail e-mail address in the side bar to get me your snail mail address.

The guy from the computer "hospital" called this morning. He realized the reason the other person couldn't fix it was because it needed a better motherboard than he was trying to put in. I found it interesting that he has three e-machines in the shop with the exact same problems. However, he believes with this new motherboard, it will be like a new machine.

In the meantime, I'll have more access to Christopher's computer since his semester has ended (A in English, A in Biology, waiting for the Math grade!). I am feeling much better since I had two days to rest. It appears the fever and chills were symptoms of a mild flu going around. How happy I am that I wasn't sick last week!

Once again, congratulations Heather!

Nearly a foot of snow! Wow!

Congratulations to Heather!

Glad that you are feeling better and that the fever and chills were gone... not sure just when. But gone now.

More good wishes to your computer, in the computer "hospital." :-)

Very good grades for Christopher.

I hope you are catching up on rest.

Congratulations to Heather! We had an e machine a while back and that's the exact problem we had - the motherboard. We had a new one installed and few months later it just crashed. It went totally black and wouldn't start up again. We had to buy a new computer this time we got an HP. I feel for you!
