Just one quibble ...

Susan, who was the person who wrote the rule saying we AL staffers weren't eligible to join the draw?
(I would love that mixer.)

Oh, wait, that was me. :damnedcomputer

Uh ... no.

We who take AL pay will have to sit this one out.

But others - they can get mothers to enter. But just try getting this beauty out of grandma's hands.
:mrgreen:

I set my husband on the task of figuring it out, which :roll: of course he did. I forgot to ask what he did though. What an amazing contest!! :banana

Susan, others - yes, when you click on the e-mail, it just takes you to the homepage. You're then entered. In the pre-packaged software, the e-mail click is the final confirmation. I'll see if Travis can add on a pop-up that says you're now entered.
But meantime, you definitely are. Just under 1,500 in the contest now. Still pretty good odds. :thumbsup

But more takers definitely welcome. Tell fellow allergy/celiac friends.

Thx BC2007, glad you like contest - our managing editor Kim Shiffman set it up.
:goodidea

We figured with May being awareness month and all - a great prize would be the way to go. (Second prizes of Sloane Miller's book also worth an entry. The book is truly excellent.)

My attitude on giveaways - Go Big or Go Home. :mrgreen:
