I have had a few "False Starts"....  The old blog Anything at Anytime - cant get in so....
bringing a New Fresher Version for all to see.  If you compare the New to the Old -- Very similar but different.  What will the future bring... who knows.... but I have found that is where the adventures begin.

Join me and Maybe we can find a Dragon or two (or three, or......)

An Idea, A " Hunt " and an Ultra Cheezy Prize

Hello Readers,

This is New, Fresh material for Anything at Anytime.... Again, it will not be found written on the Old site.  When I started this site up back at the tail end of May, One of my thoughts was to make this an Interactive site. 

Bare with me and let me Explain....

I wanted to be able to Offer you the Reader(s) the chance from time to time to go Beyond Just My Site and see a few other Blogs or News Sites or twitter or ANY kind of medium that I can find that you could access Via your Computer (at NO Cost to you... aka FREE sites) and "Hunt" around.

If I had Money to spend, Maybe offer a prize or two, to (or is it "too", I Always mix those two up) the first to Find the "Answer or End" to/too (lol) my question or goal.
At this time I can NOT afford prizes and do NOT have a "Sponsor" to give me "Products/Prizes" to Offer, All I can do at this time is a "Heartfelt" "Thank You" and "Yes you got it Right", and a Shout Out on Twitter mentioning your Name (if you like, if not I won't).

That being Said.... I will Still Keep this an AD Free site as LONG as possible...!!!!!
Any "Sponsor(s)" Will Have to REALIZE I will NOT put Links Directly to their site (A Picture, description of Product, Who makes it, etc... BUT NO DIRECT ADVERTISING).

People that want the Product or are Interested will have enough info with the Picture, Description, and the Who to pull it up on any Search Engine and Purchase on their Own without ME "Making" them.  They the Potential "Sponsor(s)" would have to ship Directly to the "Winner(s)" at No Cost to me or the "Winner(s)"!!!!!

Personally I have a Couple in mind off the Top of My Head that I would Like to be the First Sponsor(s) in no specific order.... One is an Author I follow and will "Pitch" my idea to him personally, he may not be interested but He has been Kind and Friendly to me in our Chats so I will afford him the opportunity if he would like... If not He is still Cool and Friendly and No "Bones" by me... Especially because he likes to comment about DRAGONS....  :)

Oh, is it too/to Obvious that I LIKE me some DRAGONS????
(No, I don't have a Page here Dedicated to DRAGONS do I?)

The Other One I have in mind.... Well, I am Invested in them and Have Stock in the Company. 
No, I am NOT a MAJOR Shareholder... my measly +/- 2K shares (is but a Fraction of a Fractions Fractions Fraction..... Yep that little.... but I will buy more as I can with what little I gots)...
Anyway,
That Company is Totally Hemp Crazy (stock symbol: THCZ) they Have a Drink Line "Rocky Mountain High": Energy, Lemonade, Iced Tea (see Picture on the side - That was the first can I drank... In my Opinion... GOOD!!!  Nice out of the can but better Poured over Ice (whole ice, not crushed... Like you would a Scotch on the Rocks) in a Tall Glass Glass), Lime Coconut and "rumored" (not out yet) to be bringing out a Mango... as well as other things available...
I Would LOVE to have them Offer a Case (12 cans to a Case) of the "Winner(s)'s" choice...
It would be a Win/Win...

1. They would get additional exposure to others that are not aware of their products.

2. It would be Relatively Inexpensive (Value of a Case or # of Cases, shipping and a blurp on Facebook and Twitter that a Contest was taking place on (you guessed it) Anything at Anytime.... Again.

3. I imagine there is a way that they would be able to write that off as Advertising Expense or something like that.

4. For me... it would be (Hopefully) added exposure, more Followers (here and on G+ and Twitter (because every Post gets a blip or two on Twitter and G+) leading to Comments and helping me explore new ideas for writing from comments.....

5.  For them.... Depending upon where the "Winner(s)" are from... it could give them Exposure in areas they have not expanded to yet and maybe create some (a few) online orders or a demand to expand into a new Region... Like OUT Here in El Paso... (Hint, Hint) (wink, wink) (nudge, nudge).

BUT....
That is Probably "Wishful Thinking" on my behalf...

Anyway, back to how I want to make this Interactive / a "Hunt"...

I will write my Post for the Day and may ask you to go Look "Something" "Anything" Up... It may involve Looking at a few sites.... I will put clues out to what you are looking for and the Follow ups that make you go to other sites "From" a link on those sites....
Some will be easy... like what I have Planned for today... and Depending upon what the "Prize" is it may require a bit of Reading and Searching to Find the "Answer(s)" that lead you to "The Answer".

All of My Links/Hints/Starting points will Open in another Window so you can keep my page open and refer back to it so you don't have to backtrack/reload/loose your place... etc.

Oh, and Sometimes I Might just send you Hunting DRAGONS....

Also, as I have Stated in a Previous Post on here.... Anything written or On this site at Anytime is.... Again, FAIR Game for any Future "Hunts"

So....

If you have Read this far and are Intrigued and Interested....

The Very First (1st) HUNT


It is Simple.... I will Give you ALL You need to Answer the question and it will be Minor Hunting...
You will need to go where directed via the link, Look, Read, and Find/Scan as this is really simple but... Again it is the First One... so it should be Easy.
Then you will have to come back Here... to this Post and COMMENT... With the "Answer" (in this case just One Answer is needed)
You can NOT!!!! Answer on the Old Site, as I NO longer have access to it... 
You MUST come back here and Answer in the Comments....
and I will NOT Accept the Answer on Twitter (even if I do send you to my Twitter to "Find" The "Answer" or an "Answer"

1.  Go to the OLD site -- Anything at Anytime....(Link) (take a little time and look around there when you have the chance and if you find something you like that isn't here... let me know HERE and I will get it here or start something Similar Here...)

These next two steps require Some Scrolling down

2.  Look for "Generalities" (hint - on the ___?___ not the left)

3.  under "Generalities" find "Family" click on it....

4.  Scan the page and Find the Picture that My Profile Picture Came From....

to make it easy so you don't have to go back to the top of the page... lol
here is my Profile Pic...




5.  Now, the Question and Answer to this Hunt is in That Picture


What is in the Background Looking Over a Shoulder?




Simple enough -- and as it is Simple... the Prize is just as Simple:

1.  A shout out on Twitter (Again, If you would like that, if Not I won't)

and

2.  A Mention in the Next "New" Material Post Here.... (as I will be still adding more from the Old site so those will Not get the Mention....)


I Hope you enjoy this simple Hunt...
Suggestions and Ideas????
Let me know I would like to Make this a Regular thing...
I wont do them all the time, but as often as I can think one up...

Hope to Hear back from Someone...

Also - Immediate Family --- Wife, Kids, Grandmas and Grandpas can NOT and WILL NOT be Winners -- In Extreme NEED they may leave Comments that become/are "Hints" but you would have to figure out who is who....


Writ by me today
