Ann Schmidt of Fin-Alley Gifts drew the winner from among all the entries submitted. Congratulations Eleanore McGovern!

As I sit and watch the snow falling at a rate greater than one inch an hour, I am reminded of a wonderful trip I took last winter to a much warmer place - Taiwan! When in Taiwan, I saw many amazing things, but some of the most baffling were the signs I saw around the island. So of course this led me to the following idea for a contest...
For each sign below, write down what you think the sign means. If you have no idea what a particular sign means, by all means, guess! Be creative! And since I don't know what some of the signs mean either, the winner of this contest will be drawn from among all valid entries! Be forewarned... I may publish the most amusing responses on this webpage!
The prize will be a Cold Cast Bronze Frog on Cane donated by one of our sponsors, Ann Schmidt of Fin-Alley Gifts.
Happy Year of the Horse! Good luck!
