I have a worthy cause. The leukemia and lymphoma society is a non-profit agency that aids victims and familys of victims of these terrible diseases. When my brother was dying, they helped with his care and transportation to and from his treatments. This allowed my to work and gave us hope. These people do great things and are first on my donation list.Blue Angel

      "SoCal family claims $112M Mega Millions lottery jackpot

      May 19, 2007, 10:22 a.m.

       

      Mega Millions "Mega Millions: SoCal family claims $112M Mega Millions lottery jackpot
      • A Southern California family claimed their winning ticket Wednesday in the $112 million Mega Millions lottery drawing. 

      Robert Stafford and his adult children, Robert Jr. and Cynthia, said they bought a $2 quick-pick ticket from a Hawthorne market for Friday night's drawing.

      Their purchase became the fifth winning Mega Millions ticket sold in California.

      "I'm just so excited, I'm happy. It's a dream come true," Cynthia Stafford said with a wide smile and a giggle.

      The family chose to take a cash prize of approximately $67 million and split it, California Lottery officials said.

      Cynthia Stafford said she planned to use some of the money to start college funds for four nieces and nephews she adopted after her youngest brother was killed in a car accident.

      "I'm going to put it to good use," she said.

      The winning numbers were 28, 30, 33, 48, and 54. The Mega Ball number was 25."

        I've heard of visualizing before. I read about a woman who needed exactly $1640 to pay for rent and a bill. She went to a visual class and did exactly that.

        Two weeks later, she got a check for $1640 from a mutual fund's interest.

        I've tried it (lottery-wise) but I'm not consistant. I never know if I should ask for more so I can donate more or just less because it seems the more you get, the more trouble it is. I keep thinking God is the only one who knows what's best for me, so whatever He blesses me with is what I'll be happy with. So, at this point, that's what I'm sticking with.

            And some people are really offended by you "artists" putting their highly venerated religious symbols in urine and feces and calling it art.

            Show some cojones next time and do it with Muslim relics instead of Christian. They don't turn the other cheek though, do they?

              Years ago there was an LP member who said something similar who said that if you can medidate you can get the winning numbers...Such belief you could say they work: 50% because such a belief is under the assumption that God/Jesus created us in Eden and that he placed something important in our minds...Not trying to be cruel to God i believe God created the Universe but such a belief is saying that we didnt evolved from monkeys so that´s my problem with visualization...However strange things happens in this world...Like UFO´s...

              Something similar that i do think might be true and i am very curious about is the belief that the mind like when someone is sleeping can be altered through hypnosis but the person not having concious awareness of it and somehow influencing a person to win the lottery...

              I dont think we should discard such theories because how do you know if a particular smell doesnt affect the brain pre-conscious...Remember the story about a mosquito flapping its wings in China and affecting tornadoes in Kansas...And the person that came up with such a statement knew higher levels of mathematics stuff you and i dont know if we could achieve it...

              You know fractals which is similar to how our world and the complex Earth world behaves doesnt have more than: 50 years that it was invented is just a new kind of mathematics, there is few research into it worldwide, and is a complex level of mathematics that few people venture to or get to understand...

              Also the idea of visualization implies that the concious mind have power or guides the pre-concious mind just at will which i dont know if is true...

              You know something happened to me with the number i think it was: 1125 or 1126 or 1127 or 1225 or 1226 or 1227...Totally unexplainable...

              Also nobody has amplified brain waves and studied them...We dont know if the brain when sleeping pays attention to colors...Nobody has made an algorithm of how the brain or cells work...There are computer programmers who have written state of the art viruses or worms yet NONE of them care to interpret it mathematically again just another example that people take classes or math but realy dont understand them and computer codes and links are mathematical in nature...

              Again there is a TON of stuff that have not been researched and we dont know, i am not talking researched it once but hundreds of times...

              The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

                Don't confuse idiots who claim to be artist with actual artists. There is plenty of great art out there that doesn't have anything to do with some moron putting his rear in paint and sitting on a canvas. The stuff you are offended by is not art, it is garbage and why these people get attention is beyond me...there are a lot of great soulful people who are artists...lumping artist in with attention getting talentless hacks doesn't help real artists.

                  The National Endowment for The Arts apparently considered Robert Mapplethorpe a real artist because he was supported by our tax dollars.

                  The fact of the matter is you can call a Kleenex full of snot "Art" if you want and liberals will clamor to see it. That's all well and good if you're into that kind of thing but I draw the line when my tax dollars have to pay these "artists" for their efforts.

                  Create your art but just don't make me pay for it.

                  I don't like it. I don't need it. I don't want it.

                    I don't know what they were thinking...and I for one don't want my money supporting these types of people...I agree with you. The art world has been filled with scam artists...no pun intended...but not all artists are the same. I don't like it when government pays for art, art education is fine but they shouldn't support artists.

                    I do get where you are coming from, hope you understand my view as well.

                      Beautiful story!
                      And yes Rick G, I have most of Gregg Braden's books and he's terrific...

                      I don't know about visulizing the numbers but i know about visualization- seeing yourself achieving a goal, achievement.  I am a reader, I'll have to check out this book by Braden.  I love Deepak chopar,  Randy Pausch, the true - last lecturer.

                      She's correct about giving now, money, time, etc. and not waiting for a large winfall. My mom taught me that, and i've volunterred for child abuse shelter and crisis, etc.

                      She's done an awesome job exposing children to things they may have never seen right in their home town.  Makes me think about our class outings in elementary school and middle school to see the nutcracker and my fair lady.

                      Great Story!!!!! God bless her.

                          I was with her up to the part about visualizing exactly $112 million. Okay, sure. Was that before or after taxes?

                          Does that mean all the visualize to win folks were not worthy or were not visualizing intensely enough?

                          Not that she doesn't deserve a break like this, but...seriously.

                            U should ignore rdgrnr. I figured out he was a dumbass a long time ago.

                             

                            Also this lady should be careful she does not give too much of her money away. She has already split it with her brother and father now she is giving a lot of it away.
