Quantcast
 

happiness of pursuitSix months ago I gave away a copy of Chris Guillebeau’s “The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life.” Just over 70 entries were tallied for that one.

Clearly the interest is there, so I’m giving away another copy.

The book is based on Guillebeau’s own grand challenge (visiting every country in the world before he hit age 35) as well as other people’s personal tests.

Or, as Guillebeau calls them, “ordinary people working toward extraordinary goals.”

thWe’re in the middle of a many-days-long heatwave, i.e., temperatures in the 70s and even the low 80s. When the sun is out almost nonstop, you feel lost in a dreamy golden haze all day.

It’s incredibly hard to concentrate on work right now, so I’m going to make this week’s giveaway fairly simple: $10 worth of scrip to the online behemoth.

th-1Does a man in your life drag his heels when it comes to seeing a doctor? This Saturday, June 13, he can at least get some lab work done for free.

The “His Health” screenings are being offered to members and non-members alike at all Sam’s Club locations that have pharmacies.

If you live near one that does, your husband/boyfriend/male relative can get up to eight different things checked without paying a dime.

thNot in person, of course — unless you happen to live in Anchorage and be the winner of this week’s giveaway.

I’m offering $25 worth of Fandango scrip. Since it’s accepted in so many places, it’s likely you’ll be able to see at least a couple of movies on me.

Or one movie and a bunch of concessions. Your call!

IMG_20150503_130130A couple of weeks back I gave away a 2016 calendar created by “Tundra” artist Chad Carpenter. Or would have, if the winner hadn’t been from Canada.

Not that I have anything against our brethren to the north (or, in my case, to the east). It’s just that mailing the calendar would have been ridiculously expensive.

That’s why I note that winners from outside the United States will receive a gift card instead of mailable items. In this case, I sent the reader a $15 Amazon.ca card.

Which means, of course, that the calendar is still up for grabs. So is a $50 gift card of your choice from the Swagbucks shop. But first things first.
