I will leave you with these two contests today. Have a happy holiday weekend!

Enter to Win a Disney Vacation!

Disney is one of those iconic names that is just instantly recognizable. So many have grown up with the Disney culture that life without Disney isn't even imaginable any more.

In its earlier days, the original "Mickey Mouse" eventually led to "The Mickey Mouse Club," as many will remember. Along with this, "The Wonderful World of Disney" also led to the era of today, when virtually every American child recognizes Disney. Of course, with so many growing up with Walt Disney leading the way, you don't have to be a child to love it.

So, today's sweeps are for the child in everyone...

The Hot Wheels Prize Arrived!

It was a beautiful day here today, so I decided to kayak out to get the mail.

Once I got to the post office, I found the Hot Wheels prize I'd won in the instant win sweeps from a previous post, had arrived! Yay!

Thanks, Hot Wheels!

A Little Inspiration...

Sweepstakes are much like any other game. It's isn't about whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Play fair, have fun, enjoy what you're doing, and sometimes you will win. Play enough, and those wins will come more frequently.

At the same time, as any sweeper knows, there will be what are commonly referred to as "dry spells." These are long spans of time without any wins. As any dedicated sweeper also knows, these, too, are just another part of the game. Dry spells call for a dose of inspiration to keep you going. The dry spell will break, if you stay motivated. Quit, and it will never end.

So, today, we look at some winning videos. Any time you may be feeling dry, you can come back here and be reminded that you, too, will win again.

In this first video, one sweeper shares his wins. These are of the more common type, though to a sweeper, they are still quite valuable and do add up. Whether they be used around the house, or given as gifts, these types of wins are just as joyous.

This next video is of an actual winning moment. These are the wins that only come along every once in a while. Some regular sweepers may have these types of large wins fairly often over a given period of time. It comes back down to the dedication of the sweeper, and how they play the game, with a little bit of luck thrown in. In any event, even one large win in a year can be enough to make it all worth it.

Remember to scroll back through previous posts and get your daily entries in!

Good Luck!
