Yeah, I remember going to Michigan back in June and playing on that Ohio Classic pot.
still got some bet slips for it at the house; might fill em out and send to my Brother-n-law
to play for me. I can't believe nobody has hit that yet.

as for the Powerball let it roll!!!

I want to see another 300 million dollar pot split by a bunch of city workers!
*sarcastically speaking of course*

Maybe the fed workers will get it this time, seeings how our dear
president decided to put a freeze on our yearly cost of living raises!

i guess its  ok to mail bet slips, but some one on here mentioned a while back that its illegal to mail tix, so if you win have a storey ready about how you took a trip to ohio on the day your bro. bought the tix.

    Come on Ohio has  been hitting Mega Millions, let Wisconsin have a chance at it. It's been a while since WI. has hit a JackPot on either one Never on Mega Millions and a long dry spell for Power  Ball. We've had people from out of state come in and buy tickets and hit the JackPot, but it doesn't do the WI. people any good they take the winnings to another state. So Heres hoping someone from WI. knocks it off. I would prefer it be me, but a Wisconsinite will be OK.

    But Good Luck to All Players.

      Let it roll ...  unless I win it. White Bounce $118.8m.  I'm willing to let Uncle Sam have his (cough) 'fair share' (cough) of 35%. Grudgingly.

        If I win I'm thinking of signing everybody up for the "Jelly of the Month Club".

        I'm just thinking about it, nothing definite, so don't get all excited yet

        LOL  "Jelly of the Month Club"..

          I'd prefer wine of the month, the drinking kind. Better yet, sign me up for booze of the month. Thank you very much ... when it's definite.

            I am ready for my $77 million after 35%!

            It is high time for PA to have a big winner!

            I am ready to go green .................

            ............ green with money ........... and a Bentley that runs on E85

            Jester don't worry about me going crazy with the money ......... I take medication!

            I had an F-150 that ran on E85. Filled it once. Saved a little bit on the price, but before I got to the traffic light outside of the parking lot, my est miles to E goes from 583 to 460. I don't believe I saved anything. 

            So, I traded the F-150 E85 in for a true green car, a Toyota Camry.  I believe the official color is called Aloe Metallic.

              Actually, I've been getting so many PM's asking me if Prune is one of the Jelly's of the Month and asking me to substitute something else that I'm getting a little bit put out by the whole thing.

              To all those who asked:

              Yes, I checked, Prune is one of the monthly selections.

              And no, you can't substitute something else for it.

              In April you will get PRUNE JELLY, so GET OVER IT!

              Now, GET OFF MY BACK!

               

              You know, Piaceri, I dabble in commodities and import/export and occasionally bid on sundry odd lots. Sometimes great values can be obtained sight unseen from parties that need to divest themselves of things and liquidate them in short order at large discounts.

              Long story short, I have recently come into possession of a whole warehouse full of  product in Europe that I had to move on very quickly or lose as is the case with a lot of these transactions. Sometimes you bid on a product without even knowing what it is because the potential reward can be so great.

              So I now have a whole warehouse full of yes, you guessed it, Romanian Mustache Wax.

              It comes in jars with a picture on the front of some East European looking, smiling goof with a big handlebar mustache.

              And  I think I'm going to send a year's supply of mustache wax instead of the "Jelly of the Month Club"  to everybody who PM'd me to complain about the prune jelly.

              But I will send you booze because that is a reasonable request.

                Ha Ha Ha! Mustache Wax of the Month Club! Perfect for all the whiners (the non drinking kind). Genius. 

                Thank you. I'll look forward to my booze of the month when you when the PB.  It won't be this week. I'm planning on that one for me. I'll send you the Founding Fathers Quote of the Week Club membership.  Or maybe I'll send a Thomas Jefferson Quote of the Month to Deltawhatshername in your name. Green laugh

                      Though I really couldn't imagine any WI jackpot winners staying in Wisconsin... long enough to do any good for the people there.

                      So it seems a lot more fair to let one of the transplants, living like expats, in the middle of nowhere, like several of those condemned to reside in the state of Oklahoma, that have better odds of moving to Wisconsin to help all the good and honest people there; while also plotting to buy out the company which left them stranded in these foreign lands because a sad, slightly vindictive dream leaves some hope on the horizon.

                      But if I win, I'll vow to import at least one hunk of cheese from WI, to showcase our national unity through a benevolent gesture that will surely ease the margin lines of the karmic debt.. while also chanting neener, neener, neener and setting jars of prune jam on my lawn (which sounds like might be more effective and cost effective than hiring a security detail).

                      but likewise... good luck all around.
