  1. Would love to win some of your wonderful skittles. I would be interested in trying out for the DT but one rule has me holding back. The rule is not allowing for any other post on the day of your challenge, Wed. I'm cool with all the others but not sure about the restriction of not allowing for any other posting on Wed. I sometimes post twice but have been lessening that to one time a day so I'll think about this and perhaps I'll try out. Thanks for opportunity.
