      Actually you probably could go knocking on Warren's door for butter. Although one of the world's richest men, he still resides in a very modest 5 bedroom stucco un-gated home in Omaha, Nebraska in which he originally paid only $31,000. He is also known to be a very down to earth man among his neighbor's.

      Oh and while your there, would you mind terribly asking him if he could also spare an egg or two? I'm baking a celebration cake for myself for this Wednesday's Powerball, which I intend to win. The recipe calls for six eggs, I have only four.

       

      Thank you ever so much!   Lovies

      I know he's doesn't live lavish, and you still cannot get to him that easily. You cannot get to wealthy people easily. I was watching the Super Bowl yesterday and you cannot get the Giant CEOs easily. The Walton family either.  I'll send you a slice of my cake because you're not going to win the big one. That's going to me.

        I am actually glad to see this roll. Texas has a free qp + pp starting today for every $10 pb purchases.  Time for a Texas PB win!White Bounce

         

        And I'd like to see this one as my win, seeing as how I'm-a gonna win a jp anyway.  So many possibilities! 

         

        Good luck to all my LP friends! May the winner be one of us... hopefully me, but...  Hippy

        Thanks for the Luck Piaceri - I wish you the same.

        LUCKYDOC,

          Oh please don't bother yourself............. my big slice will taste so much better especially after I have won.!!!  There are thousand's of "celebrities" you can get to, including SB athletes, just need the right hook, line and sinkers!

           

          Walmart........go to China. Then you can pay your overworked, underpaid, slave driven 3rd class citizens only $3/hour to make you Multi- Trillionaires.

           

          Along with the Apple electronic products/computers all being produced by Chinese teens working 80+ hours/week..........committing suicide by jumping from their 5 story buildings.

          China's solution???.................install saftey nets surrounding the buildings to catch the suicide jumpers. Give medical/physiological aid to those in need.  No Workman's comp/no union representation.

          This is not a joke....google or watch media outlet for details.

            Well DP, I can honestly believe with that kind of after tax win, I could comfortably make all close family members/friends millionaires. Then throw a big shindig for all LP contributors and ship Rdgrnrs still,  in advance for show - n - tell !!!!!

            I want to go to that shindig!!!! I'd love to take a sip of Rdgrnrs moonshine!

              There was no jackpot winner in the Saturday night drawing of the multi-state Powerball game, causing the grand prize to increase to an estimated $250 million for Wednesday's drawing.

              Saturday was the 12th consecutive drawing without a jackpot winner.

              The estimated cash value for the new jackpot is $156 Million.  After-tax cash and annuity prize amounts are reported state-by-state at USA Mega, a web site devoted to the Powerball and Mega Millions multi-state lottery games.

              Players should note that jackpot amounts are conservative estimates provided by the lotteries, and are often somewhat higher by the time the drawing occurs.

              Even though there were no jackpot winners, 5 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Arizona, 1 from Colorado, 1 from Florida, 1 from New York, and 1 from North Carolina.

              Two of the second-prize tickets — from Colorado and Florida — were purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1, and their prizes were increased to $2 million each. 

              This is the first drawing in which a player won second prize with the Power Play since the Powerball prize structure changed on Jan. 18.

              50 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000.  Of those tickets, 7 were purchased with the Power Play option, increasing the prize to $40,000.

              The Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, February 4, were 15, 23, 43, 45, and 56, with Powerball number 7.

              When a Powerball ticket is purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1 per ticket, any non-jackpot prize is increased according to a fixed prize schedule, which can be found on the Powerball Drawing Detail page at USA Mega, as well as on the Powerball Prize Payouts page at Lottery Post.

              Powerball is now played in 42 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  Tickets cost $2 each.

              Powerball lottery results are published within minutes of the drawing at USA Mega.

              LoveI can only imagine how much difference i can do with all that money. Omg! Just thinking about it only make me think I already win it. I'm going to drop $30 On quick picks ticket  on wednesday. I know there is great luck out there. I will keep believing that I will be the sole winner or share this staggering jackpot with somebody else. matter of fact, I really don't mind sharing it with four or more people. But Iguess no more than three people ever win a jackpot. Hey you never know maybr it might happen for the first time. Never say never. Good luck to evryone who playing. And when you win, don't let the money change who you are. Stay true to yourself and give to the less fortunate ones so the money can be bless.

                  I saw a show like that. The Chinamen are building their factories with company stores and apartments all in one highrise so the employees never have to leave the building. They live, work and shop all in the same building. No wonder they jump out the windows.

                        Exactly. The biggest offender is the Chinese electronics giant Foxconn. The majority of all US electronics are subcontracted to these human rights violators. Apple, along with other computer companies can skirt these issues because of this practice.

                        It is not uncommon for these young Chinese teens to work up to 34 hour shifts. Many have deformed hands, carpel tunnel syndrome and other work related injuries because of the sheer intensity involved. Foxconn views the suicide nets, beatings for those that do not perform their quotas, and extremely low pay as just a common business practice to keep their customers happy and filthy rich. Dead

                          Good point - we turn a blind eye to the fact that all these 'cheap' dollar store/electronic goods have a HUGE human cost and no one wants to listen.   Rather than pay the TRUE cost to have it made here, we think we are getting a bargain.  And we wonder why there is so much unemployment here. 

                          Hopefully the winner of Powerball will invest in American goods and products.

                            Yes that is a shame when you compare that to our mostly unionized 8 to 10 hour shifts at attractive wages and benefits.  But having been around the world and knowing that unemployment rate in some African countries and even Mexico is over 50 percent, and even the unemployment rate in China is starting to rise, I am sure there are many people who would happily work 34 hour shifts just to have a paying job.  I am not saying it is right, but you have to understand it is a matter of supply and demand...and right now, the supply of workers exceeds the demand of legitimate paying jobs.  That is why America and the world needs to get off the moral high horse of allowing certain business activities while prohibiting others.  By doing that, unemployment rate all around the world will drop dramatically, tax revenue sources will increase, and the gap between the wealthy and poor can truly start to be closed.  I am sure some analytical person will pick apart my statements but I don't have time nor do I think you want me to elaborate on my position...as if it really matters.  Besides, it looks like we are going to get another 4 years of trillion dollar deficit spending DESPITE the fact America is out of Iraq, plans to downsize the military and scale back ops in Afghanistan...looks like that money that was going to DoD is now being funneled to suspect green energy companies, additional federal agencies, and healthcare reform. 

                            May I win NOW so I can move to Switzerland (along with all my millions)!!!Rant  On second thought, I am sure I can find a Caribbean island that I can establish residency and move my cash there until the coast is clear of the drama in Washington.  I hate snow and you know how even just an inch of snow paralyzes our nation's capitol.  Gridlock!  TRAGIC I tell you!

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              Yes that is a shame when you compare that to our mostly unionized 8 to 10 hour shifts at attractive wages and benefits.  But having been around the world and knowing that unemployment rate in some African countries and even Mexico is over 50 percent, and even the unemployment rate in China is starting to rise, I am sure there are many people who would happily work 34 hour shifts just to have a paying job.  I am not saying it is right, but you have to understand it is a matter of supply and demand...and right now, the supply of workers exceeds the demand of legitimate paying jobs.  That is why America and the world needs to get off the moral high horse of allowing certain business activities while prohibiting others.  By doing that, unemployment rate all around the world will drop dramatically, tax revenue sources will increase, and the gap between the wealthy and poor can truly start to be closed.  I am sure some analytical person will pick apart my statements but I don't have time nor do I think you want me to elaborate on my position...as if it really matters.  Besides, it looks like we are going to get another 4 years of trillion dollar deficit spending DESPITE the fact America is out of Iraq, plans to downsize the military and scale back ops in Afghanistan...looks like that money that was going to DoD is now being funneled to suspect green energy companies, additional federal agencies, and healthcare reform. 

                              May I win NOW so I can move to Switzerland (along with all my millions)!!!Rant  On second thought, I am sure I can find a Caribbean island that I can establish residency and move my cash there until the coast is clear of the drama in Washington.  I hate snow and you know how even just an inch of snow paralyzes our nation's capitol.  Gridlock!  TRAGIC I tell you!

                              Stooges I.R.S. snoops...BHO lovers....can't you take a joke?!!!  Why on Earth would I want to leave the beauty and stability of America to go to a region battered by seasonal hurricanes?  Why would I want to live somewhere where there is no snow, the beaches are beautiful, and the women absolutely gorgeous?  Why would I want to trade that for the wonderful seasonal weather of America, the beaches in a state about to fall into the ocean or get consumed by annual wildfires or the beaches of a state where I am more likely to get run over by a senior citizen than get attacked by a shark, and the sight of a multitude of Scooter Store mobility devices lugging obese women around Wal-Mart?  I would gladly pay 30 percent in taxes for the privilege of knowing those tax dollars bought the incumbent president air time during the Super Bowl and to constantly get chastised about how people like me paying 85 percent of government taxes is not fair to those not paying much of anything in taxes.  I love you Obama.  Can all the funny men in Utah and San Francisco say it together with me, "We love you Obama!" Now vogue and strike a pose!

                              Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                              The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
