Get Out the Vote!

Well, we’re down to the wire here, folks.  My daughter has made great strides over the last few days, rocketing up from 268 to 539 in the Harper-Collins “Share the Reading” contest, but is still inexplicably trailing by about 50 votes to a witless person who adores puppies and thinks the book adaptation of “Marley and Me” is a literary wonder.

So now it’s all down to the proverbial ground game and turning out the votes. Today is the last day to cast a ballot.  Essentially, it  boils down to this choice:


Need I say more?

By the way, if you’ve already voted… no problem, you can vote again!

And if you can pass that link on after voting via email or to your social networks that would be terrific. I would love nothing more than to help score a win for her and the worthy charitable foundation she’s competing for.

Someone Needs Your Help!

For what it’s worth, I’m not dead. Well, at least not quite yet. Surprisingly!

I haven’t been blogging for ages simply because I’m just rather fed up with politics in general and the phenomenally depressing grind of awful news that’s relentlessly churned out on a daily basis by our intrepid media.

But never mind that. What brings me back here today is a very specific purpose and that is to ask that you cast a vote for my daughter on the “Share Reading” competition she’s involved with.

Here’s the link:

It’s the easiest thing to do and all for a good cause.

Currently, she is in second-place behind a nitwit who regards the print adaptation of “Marley and Me” as a work of literature worth re-reading.  Surely that cannot be allowed to stand!
