Wonder how long she walked around with the ticket in purse. Can't remain anonymous in Cali? Too bad...

It sounded like she had it in her purse for at least several weeks.

That's why she almost had a conniption when she finally checked it.

Can you imagine?  "Oh Cindy, can I have some scratch paper for my grocery list?  Yeah, the back of this little orange piece of paper should work just fine.  Let's see, milk, bread, eggs..."

          You need to adopt a reverse plan of action Golfer. Just shout out to the lottery Gods, that you really don't give a dam if you should ever win!!!  Let It All Out

          Being nice is nice, but trying not holding the door one time for that little old lady, maybe this reverse Karma will help to boomerang your luck.     Lep

          I hope you're right mcginnin...

          I will try not be nice (sigh)...How long do I try that tactic? It's not really in my nature you know.

            Actually not very long at all, just until you hit the jackpot, thereby ending your curse once and for all!   Let It All Out

              10-4 good buddy. Thanks.

              BTW, Hooksett looks like a beautiful town, with beautiful homes and reasonably priced too. I'm sure you enjoy life in that city, eh?

                First off,I wasn't saying that California SHOULD tax lottery winnings.I was just wondering out loud WHY THEY DON"T tax lottery winnings when their state is BANKRUPT.

                Secondly,I don't advocate the legalizing of ALL drugs because I've seen what drugs do to people.Legalizing marijuana is one thing but legalizing other drugs is quite another thing altogether.I don't  and won't lump ALL drugs into the the same catagory as harmless drugs.Marijuana is harmless in its natural form but when it is laced with PCP or other chemicals it becomes dangerous.The trouble is,how do you know what or if the joint you purchase is laced with an illegal substance?People do die (or worse) from ingesting illegal chemicals into their systems everyday.Find a way for people to take meth safely and I might go along with your stupid argument to legalize ALL drugs,but until you can prove to me that a meth user won't flip out because of the crap that he put into his/her body,I will vote to continue making the drug illegal!Anytime that you use drano or other caustic substances to produce a drug you are playing with fire.Anyone who would injest a concoction of battery acid and drano isn't exactly playing with a full deck of cards and really shouldn't be taken seriously in a discussion on the legalizing of drugs.I don't buy into the argument that its their body and they can put what they want into it because they aren't hurting anyone but themselves.There isn't a day that goes by that I don't read where a methhead has flipped out and killed their entire family or some other horriffic crime that was drug related.I know to many people that are addicted to this poison to turn a blind eye to the problem.I know to many people that have gone through "rehab" time after time to no avail.I know to many people who have committed suicide because of this supposedly harmless drug.So don't tell me about legalizing ALL drugs.It's an insane idea.INSANE!

                Cletu$2, you fail to acknowledge that riding a motorcycle without a helmet is legal in many jurisdictions, and we all know the quickest way to meet our Maker is by doing that. Cigarettes are legal, yet they are laced with toxins that are addictive, carcinogenic, and harmful in so many ways. Alcohol is legal and the cause of far more deaths than AIDS, cancer, and all types of illicit drug use. So YOUR point about drugs being illegal to protect the peons that choose to ingest them and the innocents that become victims of users' irresponsible behavior does not hold muster. Why don't you research how crime actually dropped in Portugal, Amsterdam, and even the US afteroverturning Prohibition, and then speak from a position of knowledge vice opinion.  For the really harmful drugs, I would establish taxes and fees that would pay for education and rehab programs.  Just as employers already have minimum non-use times for alcohol consumption, the same could apply for other drug use.  Also, some of the taxes and fees would fund government "safe crack houses" where users could come, pay a nominal entrance fee, and then use their heroine, crack, cocaine, LSD, PCP, ecstasy, and meth.  They would be required to sign a liability release agreement that should their drug use result in irreversible damage or death, their family cannot pursue any lawsuit against the facility or government.

                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!

                  NH is one of the three remaining states where helmet use is not law mandated. Last week we had five motorcycle fatalities, not one driver was

                  wearing a helmet. Like anything else that may be currently legal, it still comes with a high price to pay.

                   

                  People will always find a way to get their drug of choice, be it alcohol, pot, crack, cocaine, ecstasy....might as well make it legal to avoid the drug

                  cartels and violent black market practices.  Hit With Stick

                      Not to shabby a town. (pop. 14,000) Real estate here is at an all time low right now, many bargains to be found.

                      One thing I enjoy is running into deer, black bears, turkeys and coyotes in the course of my morning runs.

                       

                      However what I really want to run into, is a jackpot winning ticket, today!   Banana

                          Yes mcginnin, I want you to run into a winning jackpot today too! We need an LP win! Does your state sell MM and PB tickets?

                          Running into those wild animals during your morning runs sounds scary and dangerous. I love animals but that would make me nervous. My brother in Pasadena used to have the same senario when he'd go running in Altadena, CA. He'd see coyotes and mountain lions.

                          I love mother nature but where I live i don't see wild animals. I live in a suburb of planned housing developments. We have trees but rarely see anything other than squirrels and ground hogs. In Northwest NJ, they have bears, coyotes and other scary animals.

                          We have about 12,000 people in my town (Eatontown). It's quiet here. We have a mall and a few sidewalks but if you want action or night life you have to go to Asbury Park, Long Branch, or Red Bank.

                          Anyway, good luck tonight.

                            LOL  Our state isn't quite that small or rural.....yeah we got the PB & MM tic's. ( We even have running water and indoor plumbing!).  Naughty

                             

                            The black bears are pretty much harmless to humans, as well as coyotes. Very, very rare that anyone has even been lunged at by these critters.

                            Cats, and other small animals are another story however.

                             

                            Do the squirrels and ground hogs attack your fine citizens of Eatontown?  P***ed

                             

                            Good luck to you as well Golfer, may one of us end this losing streak 2-nite.  Party
