              Yes Nod

              I will too.

              Everytime I see the story about Abraham I pray for 1 hour alone with Dee-Dee, a back-hoe, a wooden crate, and a 12 foot hole.

                Thanks for the heads up.

                 

                I got the second one recorded on our DVR but we're getting it replaced with a TiVo tomorrow, but it looks like I'll have a chance to quickly get the episode back, plus the first one.

                    The curse is publicity! Here in NSW, the lottery advises winners to consider who they tell about their win; as once you tell people you can't un-tell later. Also, here in Australia, winners are automatically entitled to anonymity, and very few choose publicity. Winning a jackpot can change your life by giving you financial security, ar at least a very nice start. Publicity of a lottery win can lead to a lot of problems, unless you are strong enough to so 'NO'!

                    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                          I've never seen these shows so Abraham would be a first for me.

                          Face it....people love to see drama. If these shows were all about winners living happily ever people wouldn't want to watch. Ooooh but throw in some ugly stuff and we eat it up.

                          Just get me thru this so called life......
