The fine print says votes from ip addresses with over 150 votes will be removed. So they won without my votes!

You still have not come to my door and asked for your sample. Rules are rules folks, even when we are committing voter fraud.

'I caught you a delicious crappie' just does not have the same ring to it.

Public awareness and possibly new customers, free advertising. This is what small business is about. Two great women chasing a dream and sharing themselves with everyone that is lucky enough to walk through their door. I cannot say enough how awesome these two ladies are and how good their ice cream is.

I voted again this morning. Voting against Dairy Queen wasn't too hard, but is the current competition another family owned business like Sweet Firefly?

No, Braums is a big company out of Oklahoma with lots of stores. They are a private company, and though they are still controlled by the Braums family, they now have over 300 stores. Good ice cream and burgers but not really an ice cream parlor sort of place.

I was going through my genealogy records back through the 1700's. Looks like most of them voted.

Into the finals and Sweet Firefly has 100% of the votes there so far.

Wonder if it is just timing and I got the first vote!

Uh, I don't know how to gently break this to you but Monster is eating Sweet Firefly's lunch as I type.

Time to get the troops motivated again.
