Check out your neighborhood and send pictures to hithloday@yahoo.com or reply to this newsletter.  Please include the street address and name of the person living in the home if you can. You can submit your own home if you like. Let us know if you want to remain anonymous.

Contest will close on December 20 and the winner will be announced on December 24th.
