JUST TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR THE PICTURE HAS TO BE OF AN ACTUAL BOTTLE AND CAN'T BE A DRAWING OR A PICTURE FROM A NEWSPAPER AD? RIGHT? JAMIE

Gunth, I lost my password, so was sent a new one. I would like to change this one to something I can remember, instead of a bunch of letters and numbers. How do I do this? Thanks!

wrong thread to post in but that's ok elf. Welcome to the forum! Your bottle is from the early part of the last century. This is an advertisement from 1918;

That's up to you. I have no problem with you entering. There are two prizes and you can only win one so someone else WILL win. Its all just fun anyway.

I'm just posting this picture for Jamie... I see this was his entry. My digging partner has one, but you can hardly see the beaver. It's citron green, I guess... What color is citron anyway.

More like the one with the anchor on it, then. What color is the Dr Jones Linament? It's green with a definite yellow tinge to it.

glass man
08-14-2009, 09:30 PM
KATE I HAVE A HARD TIME WITH SOME COLORS AND FIND IT HARD TO SAY THE LINIMENT IS. CITRON AS I UNDERSTAND IT,IS A SORTA YELLOW/GREEN. THE ONE YOU SHOW DOES LOOK SORTA LIKE THAT. WHAT EVER I LOVE IT! MINE HAS THE STUFF STILL IN IT NINA HATES THE SMELL,BUT I LIKE IT. ONE OF THOSE GOOD FOR MAN OR BEAST! WHAT THE HELL A BEAVER HAS GOT TO DO WITH IT IS BEYOUND ME! I GUESS IF THE BEAVER HAD CHIBLAINS OR LAMENESS YOU COULD CHASE THE SUCKER DOWN AND PUT SOME OF THE MED ON IT! [8D] JAMIE

There are more than 10 entries this time. Makes voting a little more complicated for me. I cant set up more than 10 options for voting in one post. May have to divide into two ballot posts. Any ideas?
Should we do anonymous vote like before or public vote this time?

cyberdigger
08-14-2009, 10:51 PM
Public vote will erase any possibility of voting fraud, but anonymous is more comfy.. as an honest guy, I vote for anonymous voting... and I reserve the right to change my mind until the deadline..

cyberdigger
08-14-2009, 10:54 PM
OK.. All even-numbered entries will be in one vote, all odd entries in another.. the winner of each will be subject to a final vote, the winner getting prize A, the runner-up prize B.. ..just an idea..[8|]

The voting for the August Medicine Bottle contest is started.
The voting is open this time so people can see who votes for whom.
Any registered members can vote once. The 2nd prize will be awarded randomly after the voting is done. Dont wait till the last minute to vote as the voting may end at any time. I made my vote as an example of how you should post your vote.
Good luck.
