This is a follow up to the random contest I had online yesterday on Twitter. I had ask Twitter to submit an "airplane wing shot". You know that shot we all take on the airplane when we go on vacation. I thought for fun I would throw in a "chicken wing" voucher to @StLouisWings at the Atrium or Yonge street location in Toronto. Since this is a Twitter submitted contest I will have the winner decided by votes via Twitter poll. If you look to the right side you can vote there. Winner selected at 6pm today.
These are the pics with no descriptions. I want you to base your selection just on the composition. If you want to see the details behind the photo please visit the Twitter pages of the individuals who have submitted a photo. Good luck to everyone.
I'm randomly running a contest on Twitter for the best wing photo. I'm looking for a photo that has an airplane wing in the composition. We've all ignored the flight attendant instructions to put our electronics devices away to take that "wing shot". You know we are all guilty of this pleasure shot. I thought it would be a fun way to build a collection of photos that I'll showcase
on my blog tomorrow. All eligible entries will be posted for everyone to see. The best photo will win a wing voucher to @StLouisWings Atrium location. Send the pics and tweet me at @clickflickca and tag it with #Wing Deadline for entries is 12pm midnight. Winner will be chosen by votes by you.
*** UPDATE: BIDDING WILL END AT 10pmET every night. Highest bid at 10pm wins. Winners will be posted on this site. ***
I have been inspired lately by the holiday season and also through reading stories such as Twitter Stories that the best way to give this season is to give back. I've spoken with some people and thought of repercussions. If my heart is in the best interest that is all that matters, right?
I'm going to try and raise some money for the Toronto Food Bank and Heart & Stroke Foundation through my own funds. I'm going to try and extend the money I donate by selling these "Limited Edition" t-shirts to the highest bidder on Twitter. The limited edition t-shirts are going to be customized with your Twitter handle on the back with the issue #. I'm hoping to create 10 shirts since this cost is coming from my own pocket. I have never done anything like this before so I'm not sure what the reaction will be. I'm here to set an example of doing some good and the best interest of the Toronto community. I hope you can donate generously. All 100% proceeds will go to the mentioned organizations. I hope with the use of Social Media and the local Toronto community that we can make a difference even if it's small. This is a limited time offer for the 10 days left until Christmas
I will begin tomorrow by auctioning off the first t-shirt starting at $20.00. I will ask you to tweet me with a bid amount with #TdotTO1 . Highest price after each day gets the t-shirt. Payment via paypal or Estransfer will be the only form of payment. For more information on the supported organizations: Daily Food Bank and the Heart & Stroke Foundation All proceeds will be tallied and kept transparent and donated on a 50/50 split. My goal is to bring awareness and to raise some funds to help. That is all. If this is not successful then I will still donate an amount to the charities. So to me it's a win situation no matter what the outcome. I hope you can be supportive and know my thoughts are in the best interest to anyone this may affect. Again 100% of the proceeds are going to the organizations. Bidding will begin tomorrow. Thanks for reading. :-)

I'm about to announce the winner to the HP Envy 14 Beats Edition laptop. So I wish you all Good Luck and "Thank You" for entering. Since the beginning of the contest a couple of weeks ago, I've been using the laptop myself. As mentioned on my previous post I was confused on using the laptop because of my lack of PC knowledge since I've been using a Mac all my life. I've made the adjustment and I'm getting use to it now especially with the "right" click button.
The most obvious and attractive thing that caught my attention was the inclusion of Beats By Dr. Dre into the concept of the laptop. This meant that the sound should be good so I had to try it. To be honest I've primarily used it to surf and listen to music. I actually use 2 different types of headsets on the HP Envy. I used the Beats Edition and BOSE headphones. Both headphones used sound amazing. Actually the HP Envy is more superior in sound than the Macbook I own. I could definitely see this laptop in the hands of the music or gamer type. It's got all power you need. For everyday use with surfing or projects this would also be perfect. I have to admit that I've become a hybrid user now with the edition of this laptop to my arsenal of gadgets.

I wanted to give you an update on my use of the HP Envy 14 Beats Edition. I want to let you know first that I've been brought up using an Apple computer all my life. I was always scared to use a PC because it seems to complicated back in the days. I've been dabbling with the HP Envy a few hours a day surfing and actually creating drafts. I must admit that I had to get use to the keyboards and functions. I'm so use to "shortcuts" on a Mac that I got a little frustrated. That is to be expected when transitioning from one Operating system to the next. Upon playing with the HP Envy I notice 2 buttons that are cool. The actual "B" button is the Beats logo. Also there is a backlight button that enables the laptop to have a red back lit keyboard. I actually like the look and design of the HP Envy. Another interesting thing I noticed is the double headphone jack input. I assume this would be useful for multi person listening or gaming. I'm not a gaming person but could see how this would benefit students or gamers. The HP has an input that can allow up to 6 monitors to attach to the laptop. That is what I call "Desktop Real Estate". If you are a gamer this is definitely a laptop to check out. I don't know much about graphic cards but my friend told me it's a good one.
