Ordinary Day? No way — Not With These Prizes!

PCHSearch&Win Prizefest
Hello, searchers. Today, June 4, 2012, is the 155th day of the year. The first Monday of the month. No national holiday, no reason to cheer. Nothing special, right?

(Cue the buzzer) Wrong! I just did a quick search on PCHSearch&Win and turned up a few fun facts about this seemingly ordinary day in history.

Check this out: On this date in 1783, the Montgolfier brothers sent their new invention, the hot air balloon, on its first public flight! Made of paper and sackcloth, held together by 1,800 buttons and reinforced by a net of cord, the unmanned balloon sailed aloft before an audience of dignitaries at Annonay, France. It travelled 1.2 miles and reached an altitude of about 6,000 feet in a flight lasting 10 minutes! That must have been thrilling!

Now consider this astounding fact: On this date in 1876, the First Transcontinental Railroad accomplished a feat that made headlines across the country — a train called the Transcontinental Express arrived in San Francisco only 83 hours and 39 minutes after leaving New York City! Wow – that’sno ordinary day!

If driving is your principal means of transportation, give a tip of the hat to this date in 1896, when the Ford Quadricycle, Henry Ford’s first gas-powered automobile, completed its successful trial run. Thank you, Mr. Ford!

To us PCHers, the most special thing about today — the thing that makes you searchers want to cheer — is that it’s the day we announce…

THE WEEKLY INSTANT WIN PRIZEFEST PRIZES!

Today, Monday, June 4, 2012, one lucky searcher will become the winner of a GPS! What would Henry Ford have given for that?

PCH, Hi! No day should be ordinary, though we think that most are. That’s why I like to use PCHSearch&Win so I can learn something new everyday, then it is not ordinary anymore!:)

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads
up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not
sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
