Well we hate to admit that as webmasters we created a contest and had an 1d10T (idiot) error. Yes, that is right! I added a link that was incorrect, so for that reason, we are going to re-do the contest.
We know we have faithful readers to this newsletter, and with that in mind, we want to find out how quickly you can respond to our newsletters. This contest is simple, its easy and, yes, we will be able to track response time.
At the bottom of this newsletter you will find a link that says preview the video and send a card. The first person that gets two cards sent out to friends, family, business associate, church member, etc., will receive a special gift. The gift box a $50.00 value will contain 10 additional greeting cards that you can customize by adding your own photos, create your own greeting, change font, change colors and truly make it your own customized greeting card. You will be able to send them from your computer. The stamp and envelope is also included. After you have mailed out those 10 cards and you are happy with the system, you will be able to purchase more cards in groups of 10 for only $2.00 each including stamp and envelope.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him.
She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's
heroic act she immediately ordered her to be
discharged from the hospital, for she now considered
her to be mentally stable.
