I know you're kidding brother! New Jersey is getting better. Thumbs Up

We've even got clean water now!! Hurray!

Wow! Does it still have that light brown color, with a funky odor?  Dead

They should bottle that stuff, I'd buy a few cases just for bragging rights! 

I wouldn't drink it though, I'd use it as my transmission fluid.   Wink

      I won't ever bring up that sewer sludge, that gets recycled and filtered back into your water supply.

      That would be just cruel and insensitive!  No Nod   Sad

          Absurd for the lottery official to state they rarely have jackpot winners.... I'd have to see stats to believe the ratio of winning tickets to tickets sold is the same for cali as other places. I accept politics and business play a role in the lottery.

            Ronnie, I never heard of these stores. They are nice. We don't have any in my area of New Jersey.

            Yo Golfer1960,

            Down here we have stores called wawa and some have gaspumps, to bad they don't sell tix.

            they all over the place here, don't know if they expanded as far north as you are.

              The 7-11s around here are poorly run and desperate for customers. There is always a clerk who hates working there and is pleased to make sure everyone knows just how much they hate their job.

              There's one 7-11 not to far from me that's considered a lucky location and I buy tix. there sometimes, but that's the only thing I buy there,

              use to go there more often when I lived in that town.

                Not too often we get a big winner. Because we're talking about 38 different states that are in the pool for the Mega Millions so it's yeah it's kind of a big deal for California to have a big winner," said California State Lottery Fresno supervisor Henry Hernandez.

                 These are from the official mega millions website

                2012

                • October 16, 2012 - $61 million jackpot – 2 winning tickets ($30.5 million each)

                • January 24, 2012 - $72 million won by Marcia Adams in Atlanta, Ga

                -------------------------------------

                5 wins is not too often!?  I want an investigation!  Something doesn't smell right.

                I don't play mega millions anymore.  Once powerball expands to california I won't be playing that one either.

                  Man cali sure does win their fair share of the mega millions jackpots and if they join powerball you can expect that to happen in powerball too.  I am just asking for one before I take the dirt nap.-weshar75

                    Just to be extra safe pickone4me, better to not play lottery, scratch, card or casino games of any type.

                    For that matter a wager on anything, even betting on how long it would take for a chicken to cross the road, is probably rigged by the state.

                    Hopefully all who heed this advice will follow suit. Trust, integrity, peace and order shall be restored. Lives will be saved. God bless America.  Patriot

                        Yes haymaker, we have Wawa here too. They sell lottery tix but I usually go to 7-11 for tix because I love the coffee there. I also go to Kwik Farms stores (Luk Oil gas stations) for tix.

                          But do they have clean accessible rest rooms..... What?

                            May 15, 2012 - $25 million won by Ruth Kraft of Beverly Hills, CA

                            I wonder if this the same Kraft of Salad Dressing Fortune.

                            I thought they were all rich in Beverly hills, what do they need more money for?

                              it's been two weeks since this article was written and there is nothing about the winner on the CA lottery website or the official MM website. I wonder what's taking so long.

                              .
