Shoot, all that work... and color and italics! But all is well, saved for later...

I would like very much to share the entries with you, but a very wise person just brought to my attention that this leaves your wonderful name suggestions open to someone 'stealing' them so I can't use any....

Dreaded thought! However, with the hacking and hi-jacking of my website, I guess I can't rule anything out. I deeply regret all that excitement and now nothing. I do have every thing saved and will keep adding to it until midnight 9-13-02. Then Dave, Juan and I will select a brand name and announce the winner on 9-15-02.

I do want to add my many thanks to 'Julian' who doesn't post much with her busy schedule for being the first BDSE Asscher owner. She has graciously offered to let me copy her e-mail written to Dave and me right after she opened her package yesterday:

Quote:
The Asscher came on Sat. We just got home today.

OMG!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Incredible!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!! I'm stunned!!!!!!!!!!

I must have a new setting soon. I may sell my 2 carat ideal cut and buy tons more of these.

Matching earrings soon to follow.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

Congratulations to both you and Dave Atlas. INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!

We're having a large vintners reception in our home tonight. I'll be bringing my pet rock out for a visit. Expect lots more orders.

Can I send you and Dave a thank you bottle of wine?

Sharon


And today after reading my hopes that she would post her incredible response:

Quote:
You've got my permission to post my e-mail. I'm bushed after yesterday and I have a ton of issues to deal with both with wineries and my animal rescue.. Of course when I need it the most, my computer goes crazy.

My new pet rock sure made some ladies swoon. I brought it out with dessert. Real eye candy.

Please let me know as soon as the antique reproduction settings are available from Juan. I must have one. I'm hinting hard and heavy for asscher earrings. My husband wants a new Mastercraft boat so I have some negotiation room. Could the asscher earrings be done in the pave setting with modification?

Thanks Again,

Sharon


Also, please give a warm welcome to my friend 'Jasmin' who was FINALLY coaxed 'out of the closet' with the contest! I hope now that you have registered you will post. It's fun!

It's going to be a long 10 days and I sooo wish I could share, but this is good advice and glad it was offered so promptly!

Keep those entries coming. I am knocked out by the creativity and class of your submissions!

Thanks again,

Gin

Uh--- You won't be back to Utah till
9/15. Hopefully not too late in the day to meet your deadline.

We will be driving back starting the morning of 9/14.

Well we could stop in Ontario at that
computer/coffee place. You loved their lattes. I knew I wouldn't be abl to keep out out of there.

Relief, forehead swipe...
I was a little worried about that too.
Plus, if you decide to trademark this chosen name...you dont want some spoilsport to beat you to the punch.
Hey for a trademarked name, maybe add some earrings to the winnings...

LOL

OK.

Just my usual CYA reaction. Jaun and Dave have to vote. How fast are they?

I can see who will be driving the first few hundred miles. You will be spending from midnight till we leave in morning 9/14 on the computer.

The last time I picked her up at the airport in Portland. 11PM, I drove Portland to Pendleton. By Ontario she really needed coffee. Then I finally got her to stop in Boise and she slept for almost 24 hours. I read a book.

DTer's since this contest wasn't planned and the rules made up spur of the moment, on the fly, so to speak,I'd bet on Tuesday 9/17.

If we were at an office we could have a pool. Results, date, exact minute 3 people concur.

I won't enter. I think all relatives should be banned. Unless the 15 1/2 yeaar old does it again. Then the prize to the 1st runner up. Sort of like when Miss America is disqualified.

Our family has an old saying called "remember the paino." That story another time.

Hi,

I have not had any dup's yet and hope not to, but, in the event I do the first person who submitted that name will be the official entry.

Hi everybody!

I justs got in last night about 11PM. I am getting all of the contest entries from my e-mail I couldn't access remotely (ARGH!!). I will be sending them shortly to Juan and Dave, so we can go over the names.

I posted while I was gone that I couldn't get my e-mail so the announcement would have to be pushed out. We should be announcing the new 'brand name' and the winner entrant by Friday!

Thank you so much for your patience. I couldn't believe I wasn't able to get into my *most important* e-mail boxes!

For those of you with questions, etc... I am working through the e-mails and will answer you shortly!

Gin
