By Todd Northrop

ALHAMBRA, Calif. — A Southern California woman won half of an $18 million California SuperLotto Plus jackpot, and she has her children and grandchildren to thank for the win.

Audelia Ramirez of Alhambra, California, won the sizable lottery fortune by using her children and grandchildren's birthdays to pick the winning numbers.

The California Lottery said Thursday that Ramirez claimed her $9 million prize Wednesday and said she'd love to buy a new house after living in a small apartment for years.  She also wants to spend some of the winnings on her children and grandchildren.

The 73-year-old has six children and eight grandchildren.

She purchased the winning ticket from Superior Super Warehouse in Pico Rivera.  Another winning ticket sold at Junior Liquor in San Diego remains unclaimed.

Junior Liquor and Superior Super Warehouse will split the $90,000 retailer bonus for selling the winning tickets.

The winning California SuperLotto Plus numbers for the Aug. 31, 2011, drawing were: 2, 22, 27, 31, 32, with Mega Ball number 11.

      I've been playing my kids' and wife's birthday numbers for years too.

      The only problem is I think it gets thrown off track when I change wives.

      I'm in a quandary as of late because one of my ex's from a few wives back, her birthday numbers seem to come up a lot.

      It somehow feels a little disconcerting though, playing her numbers and not my current wife's.

      But I'll get over it.

        I'm happy for the Mamaw but I was also delighted to hear that another avowed boozer has won the Jackpot also after buying their ticket at Junior Liquor.

        It's possible that September could go down as the month of the boozer if this keeps up.

        Let's keep our fingers crossed.

                        She probly thowed that one in there to avoid splittin' with a bunch of birthday number playin' nuts.

                        And it worked - except for splittin' with a boozer.

                          She probably played their birth dates and ages because I see a 32.

                          I'm happy for her, and hope her and her family will be happier with this money.

                          That money's gone fo ever
