      Yes, When I matched 3+1 on the powerball, and got 4 of 6 on LFL 6 times so far. Last time was when I finally hit the Big 4 straight and boxed. I finally got to see what it was like to keep checking the ticket over 100 times, and date of the draw thinking there "had to be some mistake." Can't wait for that feeling for the big jackpot.

        Regarding your car warranty problem:

        Was your warranty with the car manufacturer (Ford, Dodge, etc) or was it with a third party warranty company? Was it the original factory warranty?

        What was the reason given as to why they will not honor the warranty?

          Thanks, Charh20.  I am picturing the whole scene at your house with the teenagers.

          I'm usually not the type to feel sorry for myself (well, maybe just a little) but everything is happening at once. The serious life-threatening problems I can deal with, it's the crap that I can't tolerate. For example, my car really did "die" again after getting service last week and I was towed (the AAA driver must think I have the hots for him) but this time I was told the engine needs to be replaced for over $3,500.  The dealer is really trying to help, but the factory won't honor the 100K warranty and is using every excuse to get out of it. I just started a new project for work and am missing too much time running around town, so I think that's what the factories hope will happen - we'll just give up trying.  So if you see a 55 year old blond lady on the news with picket signs and the headline "Naples, FL - Woman chains herself to dealership fence." That'll be yours truly.  Wonder if they have good toilet paper in the Collier Country jail?

          Justxporing;

          When I had trouble with my Eclipse and the dealer said that the company weren't going to honor the warranty without proof that I had kept the maintenance up on the car, I told him that I would be right back.  I went home (5 miles from the dealership), brought back my folder where I had every oil change receipt, maintenance receipt, new tires receipt and told them to fax it all to the warranty office.  By the time they got page 25, they called the dealer to tell them to quit and to fix my car. 

          If you have most, if not all of your paperwork, fax it to them to show proof of maintenance.

                  Everything is falling apart - literally!  Car engine died.  Tooth is throbbing.  Medical bills are piling.  Rent is going up.  A million $$$ would really come in handy (even a few thousand.)

                  Tonight I checked the 2 QPs I bought for FL MegaMoney and saw that one person won $2M. I glanced quickly and saw some of my numbers. My heart started to race.  I grabbed my 2 tickets and sat back down at my computer. I only had 2 numbers (won $4.50)  So at least I got my money back and a loaf of bread.

                  There was one very brief moment when I thought "OMG, this is it!!"  Has that ever happened to you?

                  while you're mentioning tooth is there really any pain worse than a toothache? i doubt it, even a broken limb isn't as painful as a tooth. funny cause a co-worker had a toothache last weds. he left in the afternoon. i guess friday he went to the dentist( it was payday). 90$ for an extraction and 2 and 1/2 days lost pay later.

                    Yes justxploring...I won (4) numbers on the powerball and (5) numbers on the lotto one year and if I had one more. Not only did my heart skip a beat..I fell out of my chair. I sure would like to know what it feels like to win the big one, by the way I live in Delaware the hardest state to hit. I also dream numbers and the last number I dreamed was 6699 and there's something magical about the number 1161. You heard it first and GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
