This week, I am launching my very first Branfordgirl Giveaway Quiz! My “seven quick takes” will consist of “seven quick questions,” all based on information in my blog posts (some are under Archives), plus a little light internet research. The first reader to respond (via the “leave a comment” button) with 7 correct answers will win a $10.00 gift certificate to http://www.Amazon.com. Responses will be accepted until midnight Monday night and on Tuesday the lucky winner will be announced. Have fun! Your friend, Branfordgirl.
