a 9 minute video on a dial-up connection? Nope. I'll just wait and see who everyone is congratulating. It'll take less time for me to figure out who the winners are that way than to actually try and get this to load up on my poo-poo connection. (live in the 'sticks'...no cable, no dsl available here...dial up is only option. Got fantastically fertile soil though!)

Wish I had the patience to let the video load. (It would literally take hours though). It really is a nice way to do the drawings and allows everyone to feel more 'connected', like friends, rather than faceless folks over the internet.


Grats to all the winners. I only bought a few tickets, wasn't really expecting to win (would have had a TON to learn real fast if I had though, semps are something I've yet to try.

Now, to all the winners, be sure to add pics so we can all be a touch more jealous and hungry for the next raffle.

Great video! Greatest not-a-raffle ever!

And to go along with it all loads of people got educated and turned on to Sempervivums, eh? A fun learning experience at ATP.

Marilyn, I can't easily draw a new name - the system is programmed to draw the number of tickets that I tell it, and I can't re-run it to just grab one more name.

But you should offer and see who else might want it. Smiling
