Thread: OT - The Ugly Kitchen Contest

    Default OT - The Ugly Kitchen Contest

    I have a special favor to ask of you, please!

    My friend Betty in Springfield, MO entered a contest called The Ugly
    Kitchen Contest. The prize is new kitchen cabinets and counters,
    which she really deserves for her 100 yr old home.

    Voting ends Friday at 4:59 p.m. CDT
    and I’m asking you to please take a quick moment to cast a vote for
    her:

    http://getpublished.news-leader.com/...php?PhotoID=42
    (scroll down to vote)

    She is #42 and has been holding 1st place for some time.
    She’s slipped into 2nd this evening, so the pressure is on !!

    I would appreciate your help so very much!
    I put up a webpage where voters can acknowledge themselves for their
    support (if they chose). http://www.robbinsdale1963.com/kitchen/addresses.asp

    If Betty wins, I’ll be adding ‘before and after’ photos to the
    webpage
    so people can see the joy your vote helped to bring.

    Thank you, thank you, for your consideration,

    Coleah

    Freaking spammer! Why would we bother doing anything for you when you
    only posted this to 17000 other groups?

    I apologize to those who found my very sincere request as something
    confrontive. I believed that anyone who enjoys cooking might have a
    heart to support the cause of a fellow 'cook' in a contest to have her
    kitchen updated.

    Did it bear repeating? No. You aren't targeting cooking newsgroups. You
    posted it to alt.social-security-disability, alt.support.breast-implant,
    alt.home.repair, misc.kids.health... You aren't interested in this "friend"
    and her need for a new kitchen. You want people to visit your web site,

    Yeah, this person should see how ugly MY kitchen is. Dang, at least I
    actually use mine. Poor taste. Very poor taste.

    DESERVES? Why does she "deserve" it more than anyone else with an ugly

    Anyone with a 100-year old home has a moral duty to preserve
    and maintain their 100-year-old kitchen architectural features.

    I shudder at the thought of folks ripping this stuff out and
    thinking they're doing the right thing.

    Depends on whether or not the stuff was junk to begin with. Just because
    it's old doesn't mean it was well-constructed. Chances are it was but we
    really don't know. Even if it was, it's entirely possible the original
    cabinetry and such was ripped out in a kitchen rehab years ago and replaced
    with more modern crap

    Of course! Or even if it was a FOAP we recognized! I have a friend
