As a newbie, I've noticed all the nice things people here do for other people. Thought I'd try to do a contest. The prizes aren't much, but I thought they would make a nice gift for a teenager. The first is a pearl necklace with a small diamond. The length is 16". The second is a small Black Hills Gold cross. The length is 18". They are both dainty necklaces. I have written down 2 numbers. The first is the number of years I've been married, and the second is my husband's age. The first one to guess correctly can have their choice and the next correct answer can have the other. I will close the contest on Wednesday night around 8:00. If no one wins, I'll take the closest numbers and my husband will pick a winner. I only get to access DT early in the morning and later in the evening as I am working 12 hour days for the next week. This is a great forum!! Kentville

Well that was the freakiest thing!! How amazing is that...that Phoenix would be the first person to post a guess and be exactly right?

Maybe this should have been posted in the "Miracles" thread!

Congrats to the winner! You must be scratching your head, Kentville, as to how quickly your contest ended!

Yes. I'm shocked to say the least. I'll have to look in my jewelery box for something else and try again...LOL. Come to think of it, I have a couple of pairs of earrings I never wear. I'll have to check them out and see what I can come up with.

I cannot in clear conscience take either necklace. In your profile you put your wedding date. I took that and figured, allot of people get married in there early twenties and took a guess at your husbands age. So you see, I cheated. I think you should do the contest over

First off, I'd like to thank Kentville for a wonderful contest. They are both beautiful necklaces!!


To Phoenix:

I don't know if I'll be in the minority here or not, but it's my opinion that you did not "cheat". I think that was a shining case of applied intelligence and deductive reasoning. Your status as winner ought to remain, IMVHO. I tip my hat to you; well done.

I agree with Yogimel! You used your brain with one and correctly guessed the other. You did nothing wrong. IMHO You deserve both! Enjoy your treasures!!!

Oh, cool! I immediately thought it was just an amazing guess.

I, too, agree with the others, Phoenix! A lot of the contests here are little informational scavenger hunts, and you WERE smart enough to do a little research.

I say take the prizes and share them with someone special in your life. You earned them!

I agree!! I forgot the fact that I posted my anniversary date, but my husband is older than I am, so it was a good deductive guess. Phoenix, if you want the necklaces, they are yours. Just let me know and I will get then to you. I will also do another contest this week using another prize. Kentville

I agree as well!

Many of the "big" DT contests are ones in which you have to do some detective work - Phoenix did that work (and combined it with a lucky guess on the age) so Phoenix should be the winner!
