Okay, it is a couple of hours early here in west coast (of N America) time so let's go by east coast time orveven UK or how about Norway time.

Time to vote for November 2016's Find of the Month. A wide assortment for you to chose from with 10 entries this month! Will just do TWO votes per person so it isn't too much work to use both your votes and so....may the Best phone FIND win!



LarryInMichigan usually wins one of the Find of the Month contests each year and back in 2014 he snagged three wins during the year. WEBellSystemChristian usually wins once a year or so except for this year. He just won his FOURTH Find of the Month in 2016. Amazing!

It was a good competition this month with many good Finds and thus everyone got their share of votes. Everyone was a runner up this month except Christian of course.

Congratulations on yet another great find Christian and the year isn't over yet!

Yay!! Thanks for voting for me, guys! ;)

I'm really surprised some of the others didn't win. They were all great finds!
