Before I get to the winner of this week's challenge a have a bit of a rant. Sorry, but you're just going to have to listen. I don't rant often.

Yesterday I got an email (that should have gone into my spam box) with this in the subject line: Looking For A Retirement Community?

Okay *deep breath* I was cool with all the Viagra spam, and the online "dating" spam, and even all the life insurance spam. But does anyone need spam that reminds them that maybe it's time to start looking for a retirement community? Okay, I'm OLD! I get it. I don't need spam from some twenty-five year old (I'm just guessing here) reminding me of it.

So, Dear Mister (or Miss) Spam Sender, First off let me thank you not only for your spam, but for all the spam that clogs up my inbox. I don't know what I'd do with all the time I spend deleting it. And since you asked, no, I am NOT looking for a retirement community. I have two or three more good productive years in me before I am ready to be put out to pasture. But If I was looking for a retirement community, I don't think one suggested to me by an unknown spammer would be the way to go. Okay?

Thanks for listening. And now for the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge. This week's correct answer was: Bela Swan of Twilight, of course. I know, easy. This weeks winner is Dottie. Her blog is Tink's Place. Congratulations, Dottie, you will receive your $10 Amazon gift card later today.

I won't be hosting a challenge for the next few weeks because I'm putting together a few things around the new novel, Boyfriend From Hell. Stay tuned. I have some fun stuff and great contests coming soon. And if you happen to be looking for a retirement community for yourself or your parents, and you'd like a suggestion from somebody you don't know and have no idea of their taste, let me know and I will forward one to you.
