miss everyone here and just when it seems i'm about to be able to regularly post again something happens such as family emergencies,unemployment,or some other thing pops up to get in my way.my mother had a brain anuerysm last august and the doctor literally told us to get ready plus she was already in bad health.he said she had a five percent chance if she was lucky.well my whole family including my father and step mother prayed hard and she pulled through and made it and was out within a month.strange thing is my mother was never really religious but making it out of that alive really changed her and she reads the bible regularly.well a few months later i was laid off from a job i had for almost a decade.there was a few times in the past i was laid off for months but came back but this time is for good and i haven't worked all of 2009 so i have spent quality time with my kids.i've got a few goals.i went to start posting again and having fun here like i used to before i got overwhelmed with everything in life.i was dealt a few bad hands and a few good ones too but i'm learning to deal with adversity better.by the time november rolls around my oldest daughter will be five and it will also be five years since i started posting here.it will also be when arkansas starts its new lottery and i think i'm going to start playing there and i'm confident it will be ball drawn too.my goal is to be working by then and posting regular and hopefully everything will fall into place.hope everyone has been doing well.........

Great to hear from you again, very sorry for your family's challenges but sounds like you all have made the very best of unfortunate circumstances.

Been pulling for the Arkansas Lottery to get up and going so you can start winning big again!!! Good luck, hope good fortune smiles on you big time very soon!!!

thanks rick and konane.2004,2005 and 2006 were mostly great years for me including the first part of 2007 then things got rough.i hit my last pick 4 for a few thousand on february 16,2007.hard to believe its been that long since i hit a number but it has.i haven't really played much and like rick said i've mainly been supporting my family so there hasn't been much left over to do lottery.i hope to get my platinum membership again soon.i miss being here a lot.

HiYa LottoMike!

I don't know you personally, but I'm still going to pray for you and your family that you get back on your feet again.

I lost my job three years ago, don't miss it. I sued my employer, and I won, but they fired me after I filed suit. LOL! Dummies, but the best thing about it all? They got fired too, from the President, Vice President, HR Manager, Manager and two supervisors. Yeah I did that much damage with my record keeping of everything they said and done to me. The Board didn't like how they handled my case so they fired all of them. I was the one that shouldn't have been fired. I felt better than I had in years when I heard the news.

I don't know what your job was, but try to find out about westernization in your area, its BIG business and you can start a company up, be your own boss. Get a grant, contact the Small Business Association. Its basic carpentry, and you could hire the carpenters and just be the manager of the crew. Another way, locate the Electrical Union and get in on the new solar sweep that is coming. Loads of money there. Solar panels will be going up all over the country on businesses and homes.

Whatever you do, hang in there and I hope that You, your family and loved ones are blessed. Take Care and see You again soon Buddy!
