Starting tomorrow, we're going to give a lot of stuff away--our way of saying happy holidays to you!

Here's how it will work:

1. I will post the notice of a contest and detail the prize.
2. You will have a certain number of minutes during which to call.
3. I will announce at the start which caller number will win.

So, I might announce that a Mesika Spider pen will be given to call number 12 in the next 10 minutes. Then you'll have 10 minutes to call. Please be mindful of the time.

Please do not call if you already have the item being given away. Let others have a chance.

Also, you cannot win twice, so if you win once, please do not call again.

Thank you!

Richard, I will be on the lookout for sure, and would hope that for your pals on the west coast that you won't start these too early for us in the Pacific Time Zone. Thanks for your generosity!!
Peace, Joe

We'll start sometime before noon. But I don't get up early, so it won't be too early for you. :)

I'm pretty sure the Uri we met at the Genii Bash would not only sign it but sit down and break bread with Randi. I doubt if the feeling is mutual but that would be the lecture to end all lectures...a sit down/debate between them.

I'm giving away five items this time.

The first four people who call will win a VHS cassette (NOT a DVD) of Dingle's Deceptions, the Video, which I shot in the late 1990s.

The 7th person who calls will win a Yigal Mesika Spider Pen Pro, which sells for $150.

I will take calls starting NOW, 1pm EST, for exactly 7 minutes, stopping at 1:08.

301-652-8035.

Ian, "off by one?"

I turned out to be 12th lol.

Kept hitting redial, obviously while you were shooting the breeze with Richard.

Thanks Richard and Happy Holidays everyone.

I called and was thrilled that I got through to Richard.

He started taking my name down, and asked me what the first prize was. I'm thinking: "I can't believe it! I won something!"

I excitedly told him it was the Magic Ranch tapes, but then he said: "Wait a minute...you're the first caller...that's not good! Bye!"

Arghghghghghghghghgh!

Now I know how Charlie Brown feels when Lucy does her thing with the football.

(Of course, like Charlie Brown, I'll try again tomorrow! :grin:)
