We are unable to contact Facebook from the library's computers. We have not had internet at home for about a year. I would like to sign up for the Ball Canning giveaway, but as you can see, it is not possible. Unless, of course, you would just have a sign-up on your website like before.

Totally appreciate the idea of the giveaway - but don't like that I have to go on to facebook. I am a little disappointed that Mother Earth News makes this a requirement. I quit Facebook a couple of years ago because it is a narcissistic time sucker. It strikes me as odd that Mother Earth News promotes healthy back to earth living - but then thinks that its readers are also going to waste their time on facebook. -- Mary
