your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #050 - And The Photo Winner Is...
May 06, 2011
Hi,

Lin_and_David
and the winner of the April Sea Glass Photo Contest is...

Well, we have to say it's a hard choice between the weird, the natural, and the artistic.

So in our typical pass-the-buck fashion, Lin and I decided that we are not going to be the judges of these really nice submissions.

We are going to let you viewers decide, which we think is only fair.

How To Vote? Easy! Pick a Winner

You will see the finalists, four of them, below labeled April. Yeah, I know we have fudged around and wasted time. (You'll notice we have a May submission for the contest there too. You can start voting on May as they come up.)

But focus on the April Sea Glass Online Photo Contest finalists below. Click on their respective links to see their photo page.

At the BOTTOM of that submission page below the notes, you will see a "Like" button, a "Tweet" button, and a "SU" or StumbleUpon button.

Click on the one you like the most. You can click one, two, or three of the buttons.

The total of clicks of all three buttons will be added up by our Mathematical Statistics Department, who will then advise us of the winner.

These votes must be in by MONDAY! Yes, MONDAY the 9th of MAY!

Then we will let the winner know (if we can find his/her email address) and will post that photo for almost a full month on our Main Page and other featured pages.

If you are the photographer, you can vote once. Of course, get all the friends and family you want to vote for you, too. I mean, who's going to know?

The most votes is the WINNER.

I must admit, we do have some really artistic photos here... and a photo that some have been having nightmares about.

Well, as the sayng goes, "You be the Judge."

VOTE SMART, VOTE NOW!

Now that you've voted on the above photos, Lin is breathing a sigh of relief. She always wants all of them to win. She's so compassionate.

Me, I don't care which one wins. I'm just indecisive. Well, no one's perfect!

OK. Moving on here.
