          it was hit in michigan. could there be a rebuilding of detroit in the future?

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

              too bad powerball never gets this high......






              I played that Jockpot heavier than normal...

              But most of my money went to the Illinois lotto....

              $37 Mill at 10 mil to 1 odds....

              Now that the jackpot has been won, the jackpot/odds ratio is about 41 times better than MegaMillions....



              I respect the big numbers, but the payback/odds raio is much more important to me...

                I agree Mark, the Illinois lottery is well worth any sort of investment at this point, but it seems that each draw cant top 2 million tickets sold.  Hopefully I will end this run tonite!

                  That would make quite the story.  We would all be laughing about that for years.  Keepitreal makes good, fixes the 'hood.

                    Keepitreal's profile says he lives in Sterling Heights, MI. Port Huron is only about 49 Miles away from Sterling Heights.

                      No one has mentioned the possibility of a Canadian winning the $205m.
