Luke 2:8-14 “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

Every year on December 1st, I see busy bloggers inundated with free gifts from manufacturers (My blog's not busy enough to qualify) and they're encouraged to do a giveaway for their blog readers. It helps them "up" their follower numbers and readership- for a while anyway. To enter, you must jump through a hoop or two: leave a comment, follow their blog, *like* them on facebook, tweet about them or complete a survey.
Every year I go on a hunt for Kindle Giveaways and always end up entering a few miscellaneous giveaways here and there. The Kindle isn't for me- I do audiobooks. It's a gift for someone...well, it will be if I ever win one.
I look for blogs giving away useful things with a minimum of entries. I don't bother with The Pioneer Woman's giveaways any more. One of her typical two day giveaways will be for a fabulous Nikon camera or a gorgeous purple Kitchen Aide Pro Mixer or a freakin' iPad. Her giveaways aren't manufacturer sponsored. Married to Marlboro Man, a successful Oklahoma rancher, she's loaded and generous, but it's not uncommon to see THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND entries for a 2 day giveaway. If I wanted odds like that I'd play the lottery. Nope, give me a nice little blog with 100-200 entries and I'm happy. I'd love to win a $100 gift card to Staples or Cracker Barrell or Amazon.com. I'm not choosy but I still chase that elusive free Kindle.
No Kindle yet but I have won a $14 book "A Field Guide To Burying Your Parents" (I'm sure it's a lovely book but I'm not ready to read it) and a $40 water filtering pitcher -the spout popped off last week leaving it totally useless but it worked great for a year.
and now I just won this: .
Hi Bev at Blue Collar Treats-
you just won the Premier toy giveaway on Bocci's Beefs -congrats! Please choose the size toys best fit and send me your snail mail address... Hope your pooch ( Gracie?)enjoys the toys!
Bocci and his Parental Unit
Bocci's giveaway was for not one- but four great dog toys. Grace loves chewable toys like I love chocolate so she'll be on cloud nine when the package arrives. One toy has a floating squeaker that relocates. Poor Grace will be ready for Betty Ford if she can't locate the squeaker every time she sinks her teeth into it. It's actually perfect for a heeler because they're happiest when they have a job to do.
The generous gift giver is Bocci, a self described "mutt from the pound" who muses daily about "life with humans (and other) animals". While not a huge fan of blogs "voiced" by animals, I like Boccie's blog. It's cute and informative about the evils of puppy mills and animal rights. AND I add happily it doesn't bastardize the english language into "dog speak". (Why do people think a dog, if capable of speech would say "frew" instead of "threw"? What would make them sound like they have speech impediments?) It's just so irritating. For Pete's sake, if dog's could talk they'd sound like we do. Hmm... that's an idea for another blog. I digress, as usual.
Bottom line: Thanks to Bocci et al for the cool goodies and now I need to go check Kindle giveaway sites.

You have to be a real child of the 50's to remember Suzy Snowflake. The cartoon usually played on your local afternoon cartoon show - featuring Popeye & Mighty Mouse- starting in December. I was amazed to find that I still knew all the words.
What a blast from the past....Can't remember what I had for breakfast but I can still sing Suzy Snowflake. *sigh*
