I Need Our Forum Membership's Help

Being as competitive as everyone else belonging to this forum, I could really use your help. Please check my thread entitled "Thank You. I Won the Semi and now..."

With a small percentage of the membership's help no one will be able to top the votes for my true story. Please vote for "Fired For Telling the Truth" once or once per day until noon of next Tuesday.

Link is below:
Thanks,
Steve or Joseph in the contest a/k/a timing chain crimper member

Thanks once again to those voting and emailing me. One of the contestants said I'm too old to figure out how they will win.

100 & In 1st

We have made up twenty +/- votes and for at least the moment have moved into 1st with 100 votes!!!!

Imagine, the one that has been leading most of the time saying I'm too old and not computer savvy enough to beat him!!!

Thanks a Diesel Tank Full,
Steve

I am not too certain. My son figures the one that led most of the time (now in 2nd) will have a voting blitz Monday and Tuesday.

Thanks to the suggestion of a forum member, I changed the link to one that is direct and also in my signature line. I hope you regular voters find it easier.

Thank you for the continued support because you are the reason we are leading this thing.
Steve

I don't know who is voting but someone is. This contest is coming down to the wire and we went from nearly 60 up to just over 30. Competitive bunch!

Thanks to all that have voted and I'll keep you posted.
Steve

I just checked and you're a semi finalist. You were number two, but number one is quite a bit ahead of you. I'll try to remember to vote again tomorrow.

What do you win?
