Last week I asked readers a trivia question about who holds the Guinness World Record for body piercings. Quite a few of you replied correctly by knowing that it’s held by Elaine Davidson, who has over 9,000 and counting.

I put all the correct answer responders in a hat and drew the name of Shannon Kreidler of Hunlock Creek who will receive the prize of a pack of Poppy Drops, temporary tattoo earrings. Congratulations Shannon. Check your mail as the prize will be arriving soon if it hasn’t come already.

I have another prize to giveaway this week thanks to Paul Williamson, owner of Will-eeze Speedy Lube on Business Route 309 in Wilkes-Barre near Wegmans. He’s currently running a Spring special $21.99 oil and filter change but one lucky winner will get the work done at no cost.

I will select at random from the emails with the correct answer that I receive one winner that will get a voucher for a free oil, lube and filter change. Sound like something you would like? Send me an email with your name and address and “Oil Change” in the subject line before 5 p.m. Tuesday and answer this question correctly to qualify: On Aug. 28, 1859, these two men made the first successful use of a drilling rig on a well drilled especially to produce oil, at a site near Titusville, Pennsylvania?

Good luck readers!
