    I used to lurk in the shadows until I decided to officially join LP on April 14, 2006. Its been a wonderful ride.

    If you ask me what I have learnt in the 7 years I have been a member I will tell you 3 things.

1. It does not matter whether its quickpicks or your numbers, playing is the most important thing.

    Quickpicks win more because they are easy to do and its valid to assume that most people would go for the easier task. 

2. Money can destroy even the best of friendships and marriages. Its crucial you sober up in the event you win the lottery.

3. Pacing yourself when playing is crucial. I used to be hypnotized by the colourful scratch tickets behind the counters promising me a good life and so

    without thinking about it I would buy a few and it took a lot of will power to quit the scratch ticket habit. Its the only lottery battle I've ever won.

    Good job Todd for creating and maintaining LP. I'm looking forward to 7 more years Cheers

That money's gone fo ever

        Congratulations on you lucky number 7!

         

        A lot of what you shared is conveyed in your previous signature line. I miss reading it every time you post. It was a three part sobering reality.
