      Do not quit your job before you have your ticket verified and validated. If the lottery officials say your ticket is not valid, you will have to go crawling back and begging for your job. If you have to, go home sick and then quit after you have verified and validated your ticket. JUST A THOUGHT!!!!.

      I Agree!

      The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

      Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

            Congratulations Julie!  I always get excited when I see a solo woman win a jackpot in these big -- majority of our country-ranging -- lottery games!

              Just had a thought.

              Can you imagine if this had been in Illinois???

              Who knows when she would get her money.

              wonder what the sales are like in Illinois? How long will PB & MM let them continue not paying? Sales MUST be droppping.

              I just pulled up the state site, there is a 1 million dollar raffle going on this month - LOL!!!!

              anyone got any updates on this issue?

                  Michigan Powerball winners seem to enjoy McDonald's. (Mr. Lawson name-checked them during his press appearance, stating that he'd continue to eat there.) I guess that's not so uncommon, but it's funny that the fast food giant is two-for-two in being mentioned by the state's individual Powerball winners.

                  Ha Ha!  Good observation Ridley.  That is so funny about the McDonald's thing.  Speaking of Donald Lawson, he's on FB now as "Lawson Dino". There's a picture of him at his daughter's wedding.  Something appears to be troubling him as he has a court date coming up and ranted for demons to leave him alone. Someone in the family bought a house in Alva, Florida.  Huge.   


                  Congratulations Julie!!!  You deserve it for your 23 years of dedication to one company.

                    Congrats to Julie.

                    Hope she puts some of  the money for her 11 grandchildren in a trust fund.

                      I think the only people who continue to work after a large jackpot win are ones that are mentally ill.

                      Myself being of very sound mind, would quit right away just as she did.

                        She's lucky it happened before the change. Don't blame her for quitting, the night shift is horrible especially with that fiberglass dust blowing around.

                              I had the same thought, and that she should be grateful that she doesn't live in Illinois.

                              Julie, may you be happy with your winnings.

                              I just remembered from the news this morning, they said she would be using the money to help her family.
