...lend me your eyes.
Because I have just conducted a highly scientific process that allowed me to select the winner of the gift certificate to the Tasteful Garden!
There seems to be two methods of picking a winner here in Blogworld. I've previously used the draw a piece of paper from a bowl method several times but this time I decided to get all hi-tech and use the whole Random Integer Generator thing.
I hired an independent smart guy person to conduct a random integer search by utilizing atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs.
Actually don't be all impressed with that mumbo-jumbo because I just copied it off the Random Integer website.
But didn't I sound awfully smart for a moment there?
Alrighty then. Moving along here.
Now just in case you aren't all smart and ummm.... math-y like me I wanted to explain in simple terms exactly what an integer is.
Just so you can use it in general conversation and all.
An integer is a whole number (not a fraction) that can be positive, negative, or zero. Therefore, the numbers 10, 0, -25, and 5,148 are all integers. Unlike floating point numbers, integers cannot have decimal places.
No, I did not copy that from the dictionary. I knew that all. Off the top of my head.
Do you want to know who actually won?
At this point I've kind of forgotten.
Oh wait! I did a cut and paste and ... ta da!
Random Integer Generator
Here are your random numbers:

And #113 is this post:
#6 It's funny that you want us to visit Tasteful Garden. I went there the other day after you mentioned them. They are very informative on how to plant & take care of the plants they sale. You got me in the 'Garden mood' girl!! I am in need of some strawberry plants♥♥♥ Judy
If your brain has unscrambled from all the blah, blah, blah earlier in the post send me an e-mail!
And thanks everyone for playing!
I wish you could all be winners but you can't because then ... well ... it wouldn't be a contest.
However, on Thursday I am going to start a little linked Alphabe-Thursday thing that will have prizes so come back.
I know I said it was going to be Alphabe-Tuesday but to be honest here, I lied.
Thursday it is then. Mark it on your calender. In sharpie.
And if you haven't read this previous post of mine about Sharpies you might like to click on this link and read it now. Just in case you haven't gotten your fully daily dose of inane rambling.
