      OOOhh thanks I was wondering when they were going to show them again...I thought they would have had them on Memorial day, since they usually run a big block of them on holidays

          You are welcome.  And are right, they normally do run them on long weekends!  Only three shows this time.

                Isn't that nuts?  Publisher clearing house what a crock.  They said after FEES and taxes....so what fees does PCH charge?   $250k is still a lot of money but not when it is a net of a million, almost not worth all the hype and excitement of winning.

                  Exactly me and my brother-in-law said the same thing. I mean that's 3/4 of her winnings...taxes were probably only in the neighborhood of 280k to 320k so the fees ate her up worse than taxes did. I think they do that because you dont want it spread over 20 years. Cause I heard if you win that 10 million dollar prize that you only get like 2 million if you take it all at once.

                    It's called the "We're going to get hit with multi-state fines and restitution" fees.  They need to set aside funds to pay those pesky fines.  Wink

                    I ignore everything from PCH.  Didn't they just refrain from awarding the grand prize in their most recent sweepstakes?

                      That is an interesting story but I guess it didnt do much good, the PCH commercials are running again.   How can they refrain from awarding a grand prize?  Something reeks......

                        I was thinking she should net about $650k and was shocked when it said she got $250k.  I dont know much about PCH but they have all these contests that are numbered and dated who can keep track of them all and who is awarded the win?  For the PB and MM, taking the annunity for me at least would be dependent on age, I would take the cash.  PCH ..... I would be afraid they would be out of business, sanctioned or ? Before I could collect the whole amount lol.

                          I almost fell out of my chair when they said how much she got. The last two big Sweepstakes P.C.H, they did not award the prizes. I believe the first one was $1,000.00 a day for life, and the 2nd was 10,000,000 plus 250,000 a year for life. I could be wrong but I think those are the figures. P.C.H should be ashamed of themselves for this nonsense. I believe they never have intention of awarding the big prizes but have no problem giving out the secondary ones. I gave them a try for both of these sweepstakes but after learning they didn't even award the prizes i'm done with these crooks. I hope the investigation puts them out of buisness.

                            I don't have cable tv, can someone send the shows to me online or sell them to me on a dvd?  I'd love to watch them again and again.  I love Island dreamers, it used to be on Youtube.
