It’s a Good Day to Be You

The winner of the Oh Happy Day goes to Paris contest is Beth Renaud of Los Angeles. To find the winner I assigned each entry a number and then put the total number into From there I counted up to the number until I got to Beth’s name. Writing the email to tell her she had won was one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. I put in the subject line “It’s a good day to be you.” And then told her she won! I asked Beth to tell a little bit about her reaction since we couldn’t have cameras there Oprah-style to see what happened.


Congrats Beth! I can’t wait to meet you!

    A kid grows up with listening the famous children tales. Although most of them are fictitious, and aim mainly for the fun purpose, but they have another role to play. They are responsible for inserting the morale value within your kid’s mindset when they are still budding. A visit to will let you do it more effectively.
