Last night after a long day on the computer, I sat down with my husband and he said something that struck true.  I am "retired."  The website that I have been designing has made me feel like I have a job.  I do not like the feeling.  And after it is designed, I have to keep it updated every day.  That means getting up early every morning to plug in the numbers.  I do not want to HAVE to do anything.  I get up when I want, go fishing when I want, etc.  So I am afraid that idea I had is a bummer.  My current homepage that you all have been looking at will be gone also.  I am keeping it but not for lottery stuff.  I did not like it as it gave me so little bytes to work with so it was not what I wanted.

I will still post every day in the "All States".  I will also have a separate post with a "Specific States" post.  I could do it all in one post but I do the "Specific States" later in the day because the results come in so late. Some people have emailed me and asked for me to do their state.  I am going thru each state now to see which ones I am the most effective in on a consistent basis.  If I can't win you some money, then there is no reason to post. 

Todd has provided me with a nice, warm home here.  I can post when I want and not be burdened with "having to post."  He has a wonderful site and I think I am just going to keep parking here.

I hope you all understand. 

Sandy

        Thank you Todd....lol.......yup, I need to finish that painting.  I always work from the outside in.  My studio has 3 unfinished ones now that I have neglected. 

        My husband was just worried that I would work myself to death....lol...........like you.  I thought about it and he is right.  Heck, I spent 3 days straight learning html again and still didn't have it quite right......and that was just the starting point......then came the maintenance I would have to do.  When I owned my Music Store, I was working it full time 12 hours a day and I used the slow period at work to maintain my Internet Store.  I am just afraid of working that hard again.  It is not worth it to me to lose my freedom.

        Thanks for note.  I appreciate it.

        Sandy

                          Hey all, thanks for all the responses.  But I think I gave everyone the wrong idea.  I have been retired for 5 years when I sold my business.  I just wanted to tell you all I changed my mind on the website because I did not want to "work" anymore.  I have been enjoying not working for awhile now.  I retired when I got very very ill.  It took 5 years to make me well again.  My husband was afraid that a website I had to maintain would put stress on me which is actually the cause of my illness.

                          I am not going anywhere.  I will be posting on here "The best site of all."  The difference between here and a website is I can post when I WANT- no stress. 

                          Thanks all for the nice comments.  It is appreciated.

                          Sandy
