Updated Bingo Call list: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1140835/


Ready----Set---BINGO!!

We started here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1138642/

PLAYERS:
1. gessieviolet :-)
2. phoebesviolets :-)
3. dispatcher1 :-)
4. mrsbonnie :-)
5. jamiew :-)
6. heathrjoy :-)
7. jannich :-)
8. helenthequeen :-)
9. carpathiangirl :-)
10. meag848 :-)
11. Hillbillie_Gran :-)
12. TurtleChi :-)
13. plantladylin :-)
14. Debsroots :-)

PRIZES:
3 - $10.00 cash or vendor certificates
1 - $15.00 cash or vendor certificate

Biggest Loser prize: Enough supplies to start a few dozen of any size AV or G leaves!


RULES:
I will post 2 random choices from the plant list (http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=8189444) daily on this thread. Posts may be made at any time . . . I will also occasionally post a “bonus” pick.

The first person to cross off ALL the plants they have chosen should post “BINGO” in this thread. If more than 1 person posts bingo, the one with the earliest posted time will be the first winner. Once lbrabec verifies the bingo, the winner will choose a number (1-4) and will then receive the corresponding prize directly from the donor.

As we have 4 donated prizes, there will be 4 “Bingo” winners and 1 “biggest loser”. The biggest loser will be the person who has the most names left on their card after the first 4 bingo's have been called. In the event of a tie, one of my adorable kids will draw a winner from the remaining cards.

Ok . . . LET’S PLAY BINGO!!!!!!

Ok, I've got one of two stratgies...but I'm not sure which I want to go with...either go for biggest loser (probably my best bet, LOL!!!) or go get me some kinda Bingo hat that is adorned with lots of luck and wear it each and every time I come to this thread. So far I'm on a roll for the biggest loser, but I'm used to it and happy with it...and LOVE the idea of it ;-)

Thanks for the fun!!

I can't believe that you actually have both on your list - what a great start.
I am lucky. I'll win this game - no hat - Did win a chevy once at a hospital fair. Beautiful Impala - the car also saved three lives, because of the size. Very lucky.

Way back ,I think 1972 or 03. We were as poor as a church mouse, I did have a car though. DH took DD and friend ski-ing hit ice in vermont and had a 10 car pileup behind him. Friends of ours went in their impala (lrg at that time) were right behind him and brought the three home unharmed. The car stayed in Vermont, totalled. - Lucky twice.

It's time I win something againI think. No bingo Hat.

Susan:

I'm so sorry to hear that your son is having to leave again. Is he being deployed to Afghanistan this time? Please give him our best wishes for a safe deployment to wherever he is headed.

I was not blessed with children but I know it's only natural for a mother to be concerned and worried about the safety of her children, young or old ... whether they are in their own backyard, a block away at a friends house, away at school, and most especially when they are thousands of miles away ... a mother worries.

Playing Bingo might be a little diversion for you, but if you aren't emotionally up to it right now, we will all understand. Just remember that we are here if you ever feel the need for "company", just to chat, or need your spirits lifted a little bit.

I will keep Matt in my prayers, as well as you and your entire family.

I didn't even find the County Fair contest until it was over and done with! I just went back through the Daves Garden Forum and found the winners ... scroll down to the bottom and each category is listed and if you click on a category it will show the winners: http://davesgarden.com/contest/2010-daves-garden-county-fair

edited to say: Old, ditzy, forgetful blonde here ... now that I've looked through most of those County Fair pic's I realize I did indeed find the contest and even remember voting.

I have 6 so far!

I forgot to say, if I should get Bingo I forfeit any prize ... I just want to play for the fun of it and to chat with all of y'all again! So, when it comes down to the last calls ... if I holler Bingo, the next person in line can claim that particular prize!

I don't think the time issue here is because of daylight savings . . . I noticed the times I posted vs. the "DG time" was an hour off for weeks. I think maybe because the new owners are in a different time zone than where the site originated . . . just a theory.

Apparently, and this isn't the first time, my strategy is to eliminate the numbers most likely to be called. I made a list and then cut it back to the required number to play. This is the same every time I play--next time I will make a list, cut it back and send the rejected list. It has just been a while since I played and I forgot I meant to do it that way LOL. For me it is truly not whether I win or lose-- but the fun of playing the game--good thing :-)

I've got 7 out of the 16 called so far. Did I mention that I'm just playing for fun? I forfeit any prize if I should get Bingo. I've been sick with a horrid cold the past three days and can't remember if I mentioned that I will not claim a prize.

Lin,

You do not need to forfeit your prize if you win !! It's very sweet of you,but not necessary at all :-).

To all players:

With Thanksgiving coming up,if you are going to be out of town and need someone to watch your card,please let me or someone else know. I know Aspenjocop has offered to help everyone out also.

Maria,
I am still watching her card (along with everyone else) until she makes her final decision about continuing in the game and at Dave's.
I watch everyone cards,because I am the cardholder,but everyone needs to watch their own and call bingo when we get to that point.
I will post how everyone is doing ,especially when the competition gets tough.

jamjew, when you are making up your card, you can do it without having to write anything. Just copy and print a copy of the list, save it in notebook (or something similar) use your hard copy to make selections. Go back to the saved copy, delete line by line the ones you don't want to use, save that and copy, then paste the new list into e-mail--takes a little while, but you can be sure all the information is there in the same order it was originally sent.

I think it's time to have a spot of fun . . . in a scavenger hunt sort of way.

The first person who correctly answers the question will have a number from their card included in the next Bonus call.

Question: What is the name of my cat?

Hints: you will find the answer in this years' posts. it is also going to be found in the Sewing and Quilting forum.

When you find the answer, please dmail me, so that your answer will have the timestamp on it . . . in the case of receiving multiple correct answers . . .


Cat call bonus is now closed!

Cat name: Max

I've been out of town since last Wednesday and didn't end up taking my laptop. My husband took his but I never got a chance to get on-line and when I checked just now I don't have any of the calls from the past few days! The most fun really starts near the end of the game when everyone is real close with maybe three or four needed to holler bingo! It's always fun waiting and watching for those last few needed!

In the 70's and 80's I worked really long hours and didn't have a lot of time to spend tending plants, yet I seemed to find the time to water them too much! I don't know why I thought they were always thirsty! Life is strange, now I'm retired and have quadruple the number of plants, all the time in the world to play in the dirt and take care of them ... and yet, I either forget to water, or I'm just too lazy and think "I'll do it tomorrow". And, nowadays I grow all of my plants (except Gessie's) in a chunky, fast draining mix. I grow everything on the dry side ... sometimes extremely dry, LOL.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends ... and if you happen to be alone on this holiday I hope you have a serene and peaceful day!

We usually go to South Florida to my sister's for the holiday but decided to stay home this year, so it's just the two of us. We are dog sitting our friends little dog while they are in Virginia. "Scooter" is used to his two cats but he sure isn't happy being here with our old kitty ... he barks and raises a ruckus every time he gets a glimpse of her! We are keeping them separated because we're afraid he would attack her ... he gets along fine with the two cats they have but he doesn't like other animals at all!

Well, I've baked a pumpkin pie, cooked fresh green beans, the turkey is stuffed and in the oven, and I will make mashed potato's a little later, so we can have an early dinner.

I know some area's of the country are experiencing snow and ice already but it's currently 81º here with low humidity, a perfect Florida day! It's so nice that my husband decided to take his motorcycle out for a ride, which keeps him out of the kitchen and out of my way, LOL.

I am so Thankful for all you wonderful folks here in Dave's Garden. Wishing you all many Blessings on this day of Thanksgiving!

Lin

Well, I had one of those, now I need 7 more!

Aaah, Wrangler's Pink Patches is such a beauty! I had a small one once but couldn't keep it alive. Pink has always been one of my favorite colors and I remember when I first joined DG ... I had no idea there were ANY AV's with variegated foliage, much less pink variegated foliage! I was in seventh heaven when I found some pink variegated AV's at Home Depot in 2007 and then got a small Wrangler's Pink Patches in a trade here. There's only one picture of Wrangler's Pink Patches in Plant Files: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/135448/


Gee, seeing all all of these beauties makes me want to set up stands and try my hand at growing AV's again. I've still been thinking of trying a trailer ... maybe after the first of the year. :-)

I bought some Aeschynanthus 'Mona Lisa' cuttings at the state show earlier this month . . . I stuck one in a 3oz solo to root, but my friend Glenda from Austin said that if I laid the other piece down on soil it would root from the leaf junctions (I really gotta start using "official" terms) . . . I took a picture of the cuttings yesterday . . .

Here is another angle . . . it looks like some "thingies" are growing. My point, you ask? My point would be (Lin) hehehe that if they grow quickly, maybe in a month or two if the weather in both are places are decent, I could mail you one of the rooted cuttings. Not an african violet, but still related . . . baby steps and all . . .

Tommie: I might take you up on the Episcia stolon if we can wait until spring? I have three little ones I got from Rob's Violets a few weeks ago and I'm trying to baby them in hopes I can keep them alive. A couple of years ago I had some gorgeous Episcia's, AV's and Chirita's, I need to strive to do a little better with Gessies!

Nichole: I think I have the Mona Lisa lipstick plant. It's been hanging out on my front porch for over two years ... I moved it from the pool deck to the front of the house and should have left it in the screened area out back. Once I moved it, birds made a nest in the basket and the plant almost kicked the bucket. I've had birds nest in hanging baskets many times over the years and have had plants die because I can't bring myself to water when nests are in there. I'd feel so bad if I drowned the eggs/babies! I will have to get my step stool tomorrow and get it down to check it and I will take a picture. I have another lipstick plant hanging in the guest room and I can't remember the name ... it has never bloomed in the two years I've owned it (might help if I fed it once in awhile huh?) The tag is long gone but I think I remember it saying something pink, leading me to believe the flower may be pink (the reason I bought it.)

I was supposed to go to Jaxonville, Florida today to attend a ceremony for a friend who is retiring from the Coast Guard but unfortunately my back isn't cooperating and even though it's only @ a 2 hour drive I can't comfortably sit that long.

Tommie: I have a Mac laptop and just recently I found under the edit button in the menu at the top of the page ⤴ a section called "Special Characters". Unfortunately there aren't very many neat little character/icons to choose from.☹ Before my laptop crashed and I lost everything last year, I had a link to a website where there were tons of neat characters I could use. Now I have no clue how to find it again, the one's I've found are for PC's and are not compatible with Mac's. ☹

I imagine all the rest of us had one left. I had Kentucky Strawberries left and I think that would have been the last call. LOL Lou

As far as the prizes chosen so far:

Gessieviolet - $10.00 (#2)
carpathiangirl - $10.00 (#3)
Hillbilly_Gran - $10.00 (#4)

Prize #1 is still up for grabs, which is the $15.00 prize. Once that is chosen/won, we will figure out how to choose the biggest loser.

Attention Everybody LOL!!

In order to be fair to everyone who played and after careful deliberation between Nicole and I,the final decision was to put all of those in the running for the losers prize in a basket and draw a name (done by my DH) who does doesn't know anyone here (or really know what's going on :-).)

The winner of the loser's prize is Phoebesviolets!!

Thanks to all who played and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did!!

Your Cardholder,
Lynn

It was a pleasure for Lynn and myself as well. All the participants helped make this a great Bingo game!

As for the loser prize, I don't know if Lynn said . . . but this will not be mailed out until after Christmas. Looking at the first week of January.
