Winner of the Italian Days Publix Gift Card.

Sorry to be posting this a day later then I had hoped to, but I took our daughter to Cape Canaveral to see the launch. I lost count of how many shuttle launches I have seen over the years, but this was her first one that was up close and personal at the Cape. We usually watch the launch from our backyard.

I want to congratulate Shirley Walker, who typed “I like Progresso Soups” on 2/21, for winning our Italian Days at Publix $25.00 Gift Card giveaway. MyBlogSpark will be sending her the gift card which was provided by General Mills.

Winner of the Macy’s Discount Cards.

We have a winner for the 10% OFF Macy’s Discount Cards.

WPMOMOF2 will be enjoying her discounts until March 31, 2011.

She talked about watching the fireworks at Lake Eola then heading to Scruffy Murphy’s (the original location).

Ah yes, good ol’ Scruffy’s. For the better part of a decade (late 80’s through mid 90’s) I was the staff concert photographer for the Beacham Theater, and pretty much any nightclub in Orlando (Visage, Below Zero, Social, Beach Club (Faith in Physics, etc) in late 80’s through mid 90’s and Scruffy’s was one of the best places to go for my adult beverage of choice, Guinness. They knew how to pour it right, and was ALWAYS a wonderful group of people to work with.

Today (7/11) is the last day to enter our Macy’s Discount Card Contest.

If you shop at Macy’s, you might be interested in knowing that we are giving one lucky reader enough Macy’s Discount Cards so that they can get a 10% Discount through March 31, 2011.

Enter the contest HERE (contest ends at 11:59 EDT TODAY, Sunday, July 11, 2010 and was part of a 4th of July memories post).

For more information about the Macy’s 10% Discount Card, read my post HERE.

4th. of July Memories. Macy’s Disocunt Card Contest.

I started to compose this post yesterday (7/4/10) with the intentions of coming back and finishing after I watched the Magic Kingdom fireworks, for free, from a very close by development, Very close to the Summerport Publix. We can see the fireworks from our back yard, but we are about 4 fours away. The location I have found is roughly a half mile from Reams Road and then the fireworks are about the same distance from Reams.

Last year we watched the fireworks from a field near the 429 entry ramp from New Independence Blvd (maybe Way). Here we were pretty much the only non-BIG pick up truck driving families there. Both locations had us watching the entire show instead of having to move our head from a blast here to one over there. Neither location has piped in sound. Though you can feel the concussion at either location, the 429 location is roughly 4 to 5 miles away. The residential location is where you see the firework explode and then instantly hear/feel the concussion.

Some of my other favorite 4th of July fireworks memories are (and always with family and or friends):
Near the USMC Memorial in Arlington, VA.

The rededication of the Statue of Liberty in NYC.

St. Pete Beach, FL.

Steamboat Springs, CO.

Taipei, Taiwan.

But, of all those places, the best place I like to be on the 4th is wherever I am with friends and family enjoying the same experience.

Thank you for hanging in there with this post. As you may (or may not) know, Macy’s sponsors the NYC fireworks display. If you remember this POST we have found some Macy’s 10% OFF Discount Cards. After the first use the discount card is valid for 30 days.

So, lets have a contest (for 8 of the discount cards, which equal one per month until the promotion is over on March 31, 2011), that is VERY EASY to enter.

Here is how you enter:
1. Leave a post with one or more of your favorite memories/locations that you have enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks from. That is all you have to do to be entered in to the contest.

2. IF YOU WANT EXTRA ENTRIES, do either one or both of these (1 extra entry for twitter or Facebook for a total MAX of 2 extra entries):

Twitter, tweet the following: “I just left a 4th of July memory at I hope I win the contest.”

Facebook: “I just left a 4th of July memory on I hope I win the contest.”

This contest will end on Sunday, July 11, 2010 at 11:59PM EDT.
The winner will be picked randomly and announced on July 12, 2010.

Disclaimer: This contest is not authorized or sponsored by Macy’s or the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau. If you live in the Orlando area, you can get some of these cards in person by going to the Official Orlando Vsitors Center.

Good luck to all who enter.
