    Chuffed

    Friday the 13th's supposed to be unlucky but not for me that's the day i came up on the euromillions lottery, £107 million jackpot up for grabs and i won the grand total of £5 True it might not quite be enough to retire on but it's a win all the same.

    Hershey's Reeses Cups Scratch Off

    i hardly ever buy lotto tickets but 3/2011 i bought 2 hersheys reeses cups scratch offs at 5 bucks each. On my first ticket i won 20 bucks, then when i scratched the 2nd i won 100...no 500...no 1000 bucks! It was the most exciting feeling ever other than the day my son was born.

    Putting My Spirit Into My Creations

    I am unsure about posting my story here.  I believe that there is more to life than having what you want most and having it fall apart at the seams.  I have been blessed with enough life now, to know how I feel when something happens instead of focusing on everyone else's...

    I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ.

    I am not the type to think instantly coming into more money or material things is a lottery or jackpot. I am the type to think that when someone loves me truly, that I won the jackpot or the lottery. Love is such a fantastic feeling, be it platonic or romantic, self or agape...

    SEE YA, SUCKERS!!! And the few nice people I've

    met here. Today, my life changes, and I'm hitting the road, the sky and the sea as soon as I get an attourney, an accountant and a financial planner and get my winnings squared away. In the meantime, suddenly I'm no longer interested in this snake pit of a web site. Bye bye!
