Jim is a generous man, and I will try at our Lotto, with a big will giving the same outputs, including some very bleeding edge desktops ....
It's good to be back amongst friends and colleagues

I'm also thinking of starting to play the lottery, there's actually nothing to lose (except for the couple of euros you pay for the ticket). Hardly ever done it before, always thinking I couldn't win. But you never know...

It is true, you have to play to lose.

Then there's the old joke about the gal that prayed every day to God to let her win the lottery.

Years went by, and she never won.

Finally, God answered her prayers!

Sweet tooth thieves steal 18 tons of Austria chocolate

Published November 23, 2012

Associated Press

VIENNA, Austria – Thieves with a huge sweet-tooth have driven off with 18 tons of chocolate in Austria.

State broadcaster ORF says on its website that the driver of a Slovak tractor trailer loaded the 33 pallets of milk chocolate onto his vehicle from the producer in the western town of Bludenz earlier this week — supposedly to deliver an order from a company in the Czech Republic. But, police in the westernmost province of Vorarlberg say that the license plates and papers of the Slovak truck and driver were apparently counterfeit.

The trip should have taken less than a day, but as of Friday — four days after the truck was loaded — the delivery was still outstanding.

Police are investigating.

Did you hear about the new restaurant on the moon? Great food, but no atmosphere.

I found this one here(Moon Dust: Floating Particles May Offer New Explanation Of Lunar Glow).

OK...I did something Really Stupid.
I played two sets of numbers on the Kentucky Lottery...However IF I were to win (Fat Chance) I'll make a 10 Million Dollar endowment to S@H, $10 Mill to an Educational Fund for the Poor to go to College and $1 Million to Lunatics to help them out. Then I would Party My A$$ Off around the World seeing My Friends and making a few Dream Trips! ;-b....

Wish Me Luck, PLEASE.


Got the new tickets today...Got an extra one too as the Power Play kicked up my small win enough to get an extra and pocket $3.00.
