Maybe it's because of the economy, but the Florida Lottery has apparently partnered with a company and is having an "eat for a year" drawing on its site.  Any U.S. citizen can enter, and the prize is a family meal each week at Pollo Tropical.   (Would the value of this prize be taxed?)  When I clicked on the official rules, it says the value is estimated to be $800.   For a family?   $800 divided by 52 is only about $15.

Well, if you've got one of these restaurants nearby, it might be worth a try.   Maybe next month they'll have a pizza for a year promotion. Who knows?  I just brought it up because I've never seen promotions like this, and I think it's a really smart idea since it's really advertising IMO.

      Sure!  Smiley

      By the way, it also says:

      Please note: Under Florida law, most correspondence with the Florida Lottery is considered a public record. Therefore, any information submitted on this Web site, including your contact information (e.g. e-mail address, street address and telephone number) will be subject to public disclosure in response to a public records request.

       

       

      Email address?  Street Address?  Telephone number?  No Nod

                                         address?          If you win they'll probably want a SS and Birth Certificate,

          What I meant is that they're saying it will be available to the public.  What I put in italics was an exact quote from the site.  I thought only a person's name and city of residence was available to the public.

            This sounds like a great idea specially if you set it up like in the lucky for life scenario...

            the only bad things is that it looks so bad, it makes the USA looks like is begging for money...

            but i've heard some strange things on tv and i don't know if they are true, like i heard the other day on tv, they said that 98% of Americans have a toilet...again don't know if is true but i heard it on a show on fox news..

            The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

              Pollo Tropical is a fast food chicken place like KFC only they put citrus mojo juice on the chicken and grill it.   The flavor is ok, but the one by us is staffed mostly by kids, it's like being invisible trying to get their attention.  Don't worry, you'll be sick of the place long before the $800. runs out.

                a better idea i think is to buy groceries 200 dollars a month worth of groceries to the winner for 1 year...It comes out cheaper than feeding someone everyday at a restaurant....

                    Outhouses come to mind and houses with a hole in the floor with the sewer / septic drain pipe that would be connected to the toilet if they had one.  The census asks if you have a toilet, I guess 2% said no.   If you don't have a toilet you can't use it to help predict the future, see . . .

                        They could do the same thing with medicine or medicinal stuff or supplements all worth $250 a month every month forever, call it the medicine for life...It could be $300 a month worth of it or $500 a month worth of it forever....

                        And i am thinking, if the weekly grand is $1,000 a week for 20 years and is a pick4/35 + pick1/35, then something that is 6% of that should be a Pick4/25 + pick1/17....And you have to understand something, weeklygrand is played in 3 state with a population of 3 million...In a country with more than 40 million people, it can be done...Even if the price is less than $ 2 per ticket...But we will leave it at $ 2 the price of each ticket...

                        about the toilet bussiness i don't think is true but still i heard it on TV...maybe the guy said it jokingly...

                          how about a brand new car of your choice car payment for life or for 4 years or maybe for life but then after 5 years they pay your kids's cars, your wife cars, etc...

                          i was thinking of 400 dollars a month for your car payment for 5 years or for life...
