So much for Plan-A, goto: Plan-B!

A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

    My son wants to go to U of M, and we really want to keep our kidneys, winning the lottery will help us keep our kidneys.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      so I can put eBay out of its misery for good.

      I have to agree about FEEBAY.  Whoever is running it now has completely destroyed what was once a great company.  They now charge fees on EVERYTHING including shipping and completely favor the Buyer which has brought out all the scammers.  Really a shame.  Customer service is located in the Philippines.

      As for why I want to win?  Why not?  I have a very small family and we are getting older, it sure would be nice that we wouldnt have to worry about our end days.  I want out of the Pacific Northwest, 4 seasons is great but 7 months of cold is not. 

      Not that I have always felt this way but my wants now are very little, one decent car = Mercedes Benz E or S Series. I could come up with all kinds of wants like a beautiful white on white Bentley but that is just a ridiculous want and not a need, it would sit in the garage more than be driven, maybe as an investment?   Now my house; I would splurge since I am a homebody and I rarely leave, I would like a nice, large house with acreage paid for with security and privacy and traditional/minimalist furnishings (lol you get THAT vision?) in a nice, warm location.  I want to do more of the things I already do for my church, cook for the homeless etc.  Would love to be a secret Santa, and maybe pay off Christmas layaways at a Walmart all anonymously of course.  Not specifically for them but for me to feel good lol.  We all have things we want to do and winning a lottery would let us accomplish that.   I cant imagine some of the BIG, BIG winners not helping others.

        We have some second hand shop called Kringloop. They get clothes out of the garbage, eventually clean them and put them for sale. It is as smelly as I wrote it.
        It also is smelling paint and varnish, to become sick quickly. Bunch of ************!

          So I no longer have to post here while dreaming about winning.  Let's be real here, we obsess about winning while the people who actually win likely spend none of their free time chatting about the lottery and their dreams on a message board.  Then they get to live out our dreams while we continue dreaming about it.  :(

            Wow that is pretty disgusting, especially coming from a second hand shop.  The thrift stores here accept most everything but those items questionnable get tossed.  Wait, at least the ones I have come across, there just might be some out there but wont be in business long term.

                  Well, you can still quit your job and live off the great outdoors.  Watch our for wild animals and don't eat poisonous berries.

                    Right now working 50-60 hours a week and having very limited vacation/sick time means I just want to win enough to be free of ONLY having time to work and no time for family or anything else in life.

                            Selling your kidneys raises the tuition needed to attend the University of Michigan.

                             Vote for Bernie Sanders and the tuition will be paid for and you can keep your kidneys.
