So in a feeble attempt to slap some silliness into my little blogging universe, I'd like to host a giveaway. And not just any giveaway, but one that includes something educational and something yummy.
|The "Educational" part of the Giveaway.|
For those of you who still have all the original M.E.N. magazines stuffed into cardboard boxes somewhere in your basement or garage, this is the perfect excuse to recycle those puppies! Now you can have the digital version from 1980-2000 and not have to worry about moving the two-tons of boxes every time you move or clean out the basement.
Oh yeah. And a huge honk'n bar of chocolate comes with it:

Cat not included.
So, what does one have to do to enter this giveaway? Well, in order to get our minds into warmer and greener happy-thoughts, tell me how many seed catalogs you've received already and which are your favorite seed companies. Or, if you're not of the gardening persuasion, tell me how much you love cats (and if you don't love cats, just lie to me). Post your entry in the comment section.
Ok, now for the Fine Print Stuff (FPS). Being almost totally computer-illiterate, I have no idea what it means, but here's what the back of the CD's have this to say about System Requirements:
This CD is designed to run on PC and MAC platforms. You will need one of the following setups to run the CD:
With an IBM-compatible computer; Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition or newer, with Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or newer, or Netscape 7 or newer. You will need Java Virtual Machine version 1.3 (free download from www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp) or newer browser plug-in with Java enabled on your browser and computer.
With an Apple computer: Mac OS X with Netscape X7.1 (available free from www.versiontracker.com) and Java (available free from www.apple.com/java).
For Mac OS 9.2.2, this CD must be run in Netscape 7.0.2 with Apple MRJ 2.2.5 (Both available free from www.versiontracker.com)
A CD-ROM drive (auto-start should be enabled)
FPS for Hershey's Symphony, otherwise known as the "chocolate bar":
The winner of the Krazo Acres giveaway dated December 30th of 2012, shall indemnify and hold harmless Carolyn Renee, owner of Krazo Acres, her husband, daughter and any livestock (except the pecker-headed rooster) from and against all claims of weight gain, additional cellulite, acne or acts of violence from others laying claim to said chocolate bar. I understand that this chocolate bar contains 950 calories (or two hours worth of speed walking on the treadmill) and take full responsibility for consumption of those calories, regardless of promises to exercise more or skip one or more meals in order to justify the extra intake of calories resulting from stuffing chocolate bar into my maw.
And, finally, FPS for the Giveaway itself:
Contest open to US and Canadian residents only. Prize will be shipped via USPS whenever I get my bum to the post office. If the postal employee at the counter or your local mail carrier figures out it's a chocolate bar and eats it, I will not be held responsible. Same goes for family members or pets/livestock.
Entries must be made on the comment form of this post. One entry per person.
Contest ends at 11:59 pm (or around there) on Sunday, January 6, 2013, and winner's name will be randomly drawn from a vessel containing the cyber-identities of entrants (all your names thrown into a bowl from my kitchen cupboard and picked out by my daughter) on or about "Morning Time" on Monday the 7th, or whenever daughter wakes up and feels like participating.
