Watching Beez, the week end of Valentines day might be the time. Don't know how much time before they are checking the winner out.

There is a strange van sitting at the end of our road. And they don't look like hunters.

Looks like the drawing will be on or about the "Period on or about February 26, 2014" with "Winner will be contacted either by phone, e-mail, in writing, or in person via an "ambush style" visit by Sponsor representatives at the Grand Prize Winner's home or other location on or about March 3 - 9, 2014 (subject to change)".

The only chance and I'm taking it......VERY young and inquisitive GD visiting and keeping GM on her toes. Oh my! No time to BOLO...except for her little fingers!

Only thing we've noticed is a NEW truck that sounds like a jet is either taking off/landing when arriving/leaving. It keeps waking little one....who would miss this! If this is the new truck....I'll PASS! One thing for sure, the owner will never be surprised if someone starts it up in the middle of the night.

Wishing everyone a terrific weekend.

There is a white van with two men in white coats and butterfly nets parked at the end of my driveway! I'm so excited! Do you think they are from HGTV? Should I go ask them? Smile

Green Alice, Do you REALLY have that many cameras around your home? LOL

I just got a few here and there. No sneaking up on our home. And, we have very watchful neighbors!

Last year, our neighbor asked me if we could see through our door window. It was such an odd question. But she had a good point. There are ways around this. Place the alarm system several feet from any entrance. Provides more time to get curlers out of the hair.

Why yes of course Trish! After years of intensive BOLO training to be aware of all points of infiltration by HGTV spys is crucial....you think it's a bit much?!?! Big Grin
Of course I don't have a back up generator....but one has to have a budget and draw a line, in the snow.... Razz Of course those cameras are limited to the perimeters of my own property and a bit down the block.....hgtv is pretty crafty and I am sure they have upped the ante and developed new methods we are at a loss to cover.....still we must strive to do our BOLO best.....Big Grin

I live on a private drive, so between my dogs and the neighbors, we have an early warning system. What a neat warning that would be to have HGTV coming up the drive.

Just out of curiosity....WHO might be surprising the winner?

We have some suspicious activity in our community with HGTV personalities. They SAY they are here for a home improvement event - I think it could be something ELSE. OK.....Where on earth did I put our binocs?

I can't imagine HOW they'd get to our area with all the flights being cancelled. AND.....isn't it too early for them to looking for the DH winner?

OK...now, I've got myself on pins and needles. Should've kept the blinders on and kept calm.

I would feel the same GA. What a big surprise that would be. Entry goes until the 14th or 15th and I believe the drawing is shortly after that. The rules say notification is later in the month, but sometimes they do that sooner then stated.

I was just thinking, in the dream home, I could have the Olympics going on 7 TV's at once so as you change rooms and not miss a thing. I can put it on the ipad in the living room and kitchen.

I'm sticking to my watch dogs, they will announce the dream teams arrival Smile

How exciting that would be! If they had a party and included all the people what a gift! These are MY celebrities.....They are VERY talented!

So often...the musicians, athletes, clothing stylists, actors receive accolades for their accomplishments; how I wish home design would have special recognition.

Is the Dream Home as close as it gets? Or is there something I am missing?

Nothing here and if a white van were to drive by? WOuld be hard to spot over the huge white piles of snow along my curb!!! Eek

Oh here's a solution for that....must build a big 'un....Big Grin
