What lurks in the gangway...

My blogging compadre, Fred, over at One Project Closer is hosting a giveaway for a set of two solar lamps, so you should head on over and check out his blog, and maybe enter -- but don't put forth too good of an argument, I want to win! ;) Just kidding...good luck to all, of course. Here's a link directly to the post I'm talking about.

Anyway, as promised in my "entry" for that contest, here's a picture of the unlighted gangway and the back of the house. It's a photo at night during the winter that shows the stark contrast between the lighted backyard and the dark, "scary" gangway (on the right of the photo). As you can see, it's not the safest setup in the world. And although I've been thinking about getting some solar lamps, I'd of course love to try some out for free and give them a great review, if indeed they deserve it. :)



I should mention that I have not messed with the brightness or contrast of this photo. This is the real deal. Besides, if I went to all that trouble for two free solar lamps, what kind of nutso would I be? :) I mean, free is free, but I'm not that competitive or insane. :)

Hmm, well now I'll have to go look at the link and see if you have instilled in me a want of solar lamps too! :-)

Thanks for linking back. We ended up getting bombed by online-sweepstakes.com, which is cool for the publicity (but none of the entrants really "stuck" as readers it appears)... I'm going to do another giveaway soon for regular readers only (or maybe something where if you right a response on your own blog you get... like.. 50 entries, whereas you only get 1 for a comment)... to tip the scales.

Thanks for entering. I'm going to draw randomly. I hope one of my regular readers wins.
