Congrats David and Maureen.  Party

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      Hopefully they have more sense that the Tennessee couple.  She looks great for 70.

        Why does every lottery winner say they are going to give a cut of their winnings to charity? It's ad if they are now obligated to give due to their good fortune. Do a little checking and you'll find that a very small percentage of the money actually goes to the intended cause. That's why the charities are not called "Paint the CEO's house," or "Buy the CEO a new mercedes."

            Congratulations to the happy couple. Maureen looks pretty good for 70. Probably a dancer in her youth,  110 lbs soaking wet & a multi millionaire to boot.Smile You go girl.

                Makes you wonder. The Tennessee people claimed they only bought "4" tickets.

                In this thread they say:

                "Keeping the secret was not easy. The first day after the win David arrived late for work, prompting employees to ask him if he was the winner. He told them he didn't purchase a ticket. (He didn't lie, because Maureen was the one who bought it.)"

                Is the "it" being only one ticket they purchased?

                The rest of us must be crazy buying more than 4 tickets then? If that's all it takes to get extremely lucky?

                If nobody hits in the next 8 draws we are back to the 1 billion plus JP?

                         I thought they would be buying professional advice. Such as, They did not have to do a press conference.     Gloria MacKenzie, the $599.5 million winner from Zephyr Hills, Florida did not do a press conference. But the press was alerted to her presence in the building.

                         Winning a major jackpot would make me nervous. It is a big change from everyday life. 

                        God bless the both of them, their family, and their friends.

                          Thanks for the laugh to warm me up after walking 2.7 miles with the pooch in cold azz Kentucky.

                            What Florida Lottery did to Gloria was very wrong. 

                            Gloria just showed up by surprise. She declined press.

                            However, the Florida Lotto called the press and probably stalled Gloria for a while.

                            And now they have footage of her running to her car trying to get away.
