I Just Won Lady Gaga Tickets

I’m super excited today!

After reading a tweet from my Twitter stream from @SamsungMobileCA this morning, which asked you to retweet for a chance to win tickets to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball in Vancouver.

Samsung Lady Gaga Tweet


Since I wanted to see her in concert again, and never did get any tickets, I thought what the hell. I had nothing to loose and only good things to gain.

I was super excited when I got a response from them on Twitter letting me know I had won tickets to her show on Saturday. I can hardly wait to see her again in Vancouver. She puts on an amazing show and this monster is excited.

Thanks Samsung Mobile!

With this past weeks snow storm through the central US and through Eastern Canada, how prepared are you should you find yourself stranded in a winter storm? Have you ever been stuck or stranded on the road? The Community Against Preventable Injuries (Preventable) wants to hear your story and you can be entered to win an emergency roadside kit.

We might not always think of winter driving here in Vancouver, but for some of you who ski or travel into the mountains are you prepared for being stranded should snow conditions change? For me, coming from Ontario, I’ve always made sure I had some essentials in my car. I made sure I had a least a blanket and candles. Yes not a full stock of essentials, but I was more prepared than some.

What is contained in the Preventable emergency roadside kit? Well you get:

  • booster cables
  • tire sealer
  • hand warmers
  • work gloves
  • survival candles
  • matches
  • rain poncho
  • emergency rescue blanket
  • emergency flares
  • flashlight with batteries
  • first aid kit

To enter, just leave me a comment on how you were caught unprepared in bad winter weather conditions or tweet “I want to win an Emergency Roadside Kit from @GusF and @Preventable. Learn more about The Community here – http://ow.ly/1WlSP

I’ll be drawing for this on Thursday February 10th at 5pm. For more details, please check out Preventable’s offical rules.

Thanks to all who participated for this great price from Preventable. The winner, after asking for a quick random number. Thanks to @OLMMark for choosing this winner – Brian Paterson. We’ll have someone contact you in the next couple of days.

What Makes You Smile Over the Holidays Contest

Oral-B Vitality ProWhite 3 Welcome to my very first ever contest! Are you excited, I’m excited and I’m smiling about it!

As we all know the holidays are always a time for merriment and good cheer. And what shows off that cheer more than a wonderful smile. The folks at Oral-B have been kind enough to offer one lucky reader not one, but two Oral-B Vitality ProWhite® power toothbrushes to help you show your loved ones how important their smile is.

The Oral-B Vitality ProWhite cleans and naturally whitens teeth by removing surface stains and more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush – and it’s patented brush head with polishing cup is inspired by the tools dental hygienists use.

What I’m asking my readers is to answer a simple question – What makes you smile over the holidays? You can leave me comment here or tweet me a response and tag it with #oralb. One lucky winner will win 2 of these awesome power toothbrushes. Each comment and/or tweet is one entry into the contest. I myself use the Oral-B power toothbrush and swear by it. So think long and hard, but not too long as this contest will end on December 5th, 2009 at 12 noon PT.

*This contest is open to Canadian Residents only.

UPDATE: And the Winner is!!!!???? – Raul Pacheco!! Congrats! Russ picked a number randomly and you are the lucky winner!
