It is 12:19 AM on Monday, December 19, 2011. I stated that the cutoff was 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 18, 2011. I wanted to draw the winner early on the 19th so the winner might have the blender in time for Christmas.
Using www.random.org I drew the winning number. There were 126 comments and the winning number was 8---Christen. I have sent Christen an email and will mail the blender as soon as I get her address.
Thanks to each of you who left a comment. I plan on having another giveaway for Valentine's Day. In the meantime I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
