Hi Everyone:

Glad to see the form so active, it sure shows that Spring time brings out the Bees wink

I entered into a local radio contest - the www.1057thehawk.com Jersey Job Squad Contest - they pay callers drawn from their online sign up list $105.00 an hour from 9am-4pm - each hour calling out the name of a new contestant who then has 10minutes 57 seconds to call them back.

My name was called at 4pm which means tomorrow at 9am a new contestant's name is called, if they don't respond in 10.57 minutes,  I get another $105.00 an hour UNTIL someone DOES call in.

By winning $105.00 so far, I am ALSO in a drawing for an all expense trip for two to one of three Islands for a week!!!!

So far about 50 winners and two weeks left to the contents is over - so maybe another 50 winners. That's a 1 in 100 chance of winning the trips, so I'll be happy to stay ON THE CLOCK and hope no one calls at 9am 10am, 11am, etc. That $105.00 adds up nicely Smiley The most anyone has won so far is FOUR hours which comes out to $420.00 not too bad for listening to the radio at work - wish me luck, I'll update this tomorrow!!!!

Congrats, you lucky dog Cheesy

There's a radio station here in Dallas that gives away $1,000
per hour like that. Some other lucky dog stayed on the
"workforce" clock for four hours yesterday shocked

Tomorrow (sat 20th) is the contest day, held in Seaside Park, NJ about 16 miles from here - on the boardwalk of the Atlantic Ocean, and around the amusement park rides.

The final count is 151 people (so we know the odds) and here is how the drawing works.

I sign-in showing ID and get an envelope which I pull from a huge sack of envelopes. When it is time for the drawing, everyone with an envelope opens theirs and someone will open the luck envelope with the trip tickets inside. You also get (just the contestants - not a second family member or friend) an all day pass on the rides on the boardwalk.

Here are the drawbacks of the contest - but first, last years prizes which were TWO NEW CARS and this year trips to the Islands (you choose one of three Club-Meds). But the drawbacks are - only airfare and accomodations are included - NO GROUND TRANSPORT (neither to nor from the airports both here and there) and NO MEALS are included.

Actually this is FAR from an all-inclusive trip - this could cost the winning couple HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of dollars for rent-a-cars, and dining 32 to 3 times a day - NOT TO FORGET ADULT BEVERAGES.

Honestly, I enjoy winning as much as anyone - but I'm no longer excited about this. I think it went from a wonderful contest last year to a mediocre contest this year.

It's not a gifted horse, so looking it in the mouth is NOT a problem. The biggest shame of this is that it is NON-TRANSFERABLE, so I couldn't even give it away.

The only part I'm looking forward to is riding a few rides (I haven't been to seaside in years) and they also have a food display that we can snack on while on the boardwalk.

I just thought I'd mention this because not all wonderful prizes are as good as they seem - what could have been an all inclusive fantasy get-away for two MIGHT be too expensive for dome people to even go once you add it all the above mentioned stuff, plus tips, taxes and other fees that you get hit with when traveling.

But still - wish me luck  wink
