Another Contest.....What have YOU learned?

In this particular contest you don't have to think too hard.  I have a lovely extra copy of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" that I would like to give away!!  I can honestly say I don't know how I ended up with two copies of this book.  Perhaps it was just fate that one of you receive this book.  It is "A practical A-Z reference to drug-free remedies using vitamins, minerals, herbs and food supplements".  It is a BIG book and it has 600 pages.  Well, it seems to be actually only A-Y (acne to yeast infection) but it has tons of great information on hundreds of issues between them.   Certainly a nice book to have on hand!!  If you already have one you know how great it is, try to win this one and give it as a gift.

You MUST comment on the actual blog HERE to be entered.  Visit our website and check out our "Did you know?" page.  Once you have an idea of what I'm looking for, comment below and give me your own bit of learned wisdom. Share any random or funny bit of info you have learned in your lifetime. Things that your grandparents told you like "Don't pee into the wind" or "Let sleeping dogs lie" are great!!

 Each commentor will be assigned a number (in order of posting date/time) and I will be using a random number generator to select the winner.  Pretty easy, huh?  Just make sure I am able to contact you...or be sure to check the blog when the winner is announced and get ahold of me. 
Contest will run from now until March 12th, 2012.

I reserve the right to post any entries (with credit given to the poster) on my "Did you know?" page.
NOTE:  I will ONLY ship the book within the continental US.

  4. Wow - you guys are GREAT! Carolyn - so true.

  5. "Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something broken, maybe it's about starting over and creating something better."

    I stole this from my sister-n-law, but I truly believe that anything can be made into something better.

  6. When your farmer father asks "Want to go to a rock concert?" it has nothing to do with rock-n-roll.


    Goats calm right down if you sing to them. (DH sang to our new dairy goats while I milked. Surprisingly and quickly, getting the milking stand built moved to the top of the honey-do list)

  7. Okay, that is only FOUR contestants, unless somebody else posts before midnight. I will do the drawing tomorrow afternoon and post the winner.

  8. I have two :) A house is not a home without a pet and
    Don't forget to look at the stars. Take a deep breath and just breathe it all in. Suddenly our problems don't seem so big. :)
