·· For contests originating on the blog requiring a comment: simply leave a comment on the blog post indicated. Be sure to enter a valid e-mail address or your entry isn't complete (your privacy is protected.)

·· Only entries received through this website will be considered eligible. International entries are accepted. Odds of winning are dependent upon number of eligible entries received.

·· Winner(s) will be notified by e-mail within 30 days of the drawing and names may or may not get posted to this website.
