  30. I’d like to try the magnesium lotion for my dry skin since it should be effctive at encouraging healthy skin tissue and I also like that it’s ideal for children too I like to rub lotion on the grand boy when we get him out of the tub.
    At Applebee’s I’d like to start with Spinach & Artichoke Dip and then for an entree try the Cabernet Mushroom Sirloin- sounds yummy!

  31. Question: Has anyone else had their Twitter account suspended for “aggressive following” from entering giveaways? Is there any way around this? I’m a newbie and maybe I’m not understanding something? Any advice would be greatly appreciated it bugs me to only be able to have 40 entries out of 59 *pout*.

    • I haven’t has this happen to me personally but I think you need to have a certain ratio of people following you as opposed to those that you follow. I think you can’t have a bunch more that you follow than who follow you or they label you a spammer. Why don’t you leave your twitter name in this comment thread and I will follow you and perhaps some others who read it will, too.


      • anythings worth a try – thanks! It’s just so frustrating when just trying to follow direction and end up suspended…and for “aggressive following” makes me feel kinda dirty – LOL!
        My twitter is @tdkittrell – and I have NO followers – this makes the most sense of anything I’ve heard and I could understand this being the case, but I can’t get any true explanation out of twitter csr’s.
        So let’s try :)
        Thanks again – have a blessed week!!

        • You know what, I am trying to find you and can’t…are you set to private or something? I copied and pasted the handle you left and tried a few times. :/

    I could use the prizes to share with my Sister. Applebee’s for lunch would be such a treat for us. She takes me to the Doctor’s..every 2 weeks. I have a very serious Heart Condition so the winnings would enable me to pamper
    myself as any and all funds go to my past hospital visits and the many pills I take. I hope to try the Shrimp and Sirloin if I won at Applebee’s. I would try the magnesium lotion from Ancient Minerals. Thank you for this chance:)
