I entered a CONTEST to win a trip to SEE GREEN DAY.  Last 2 days to vote,  today Sat and tomorrow Sun. June 23.  

Would you vote for me,  as one serious Green Day fan to another?    You have to vote on my picture, which is lame, but I love them.  Rules were a bit hard to understand.   Karen Ahmad,  pictures are in alphabetical order  And ask other Green Day fans you know

 Here’s the exact link: http://www.radio1045.com/pages/contests/instagood/ ez link

I just joined ONE and they are about fighting injustice. I hope we can all follow Green Day's lead and strive for a better world where we can all live happily.
