    I am off to Florida early on Saturday morning (no parties while I'm gone:crazy: ) Going to visit Moms for a few days. Unfortunately we are driving so it will be at least 2 days in the car both ways!
    So I will check in on you and make sure everyone is behaving. Those with kids, have a nice midwinter break!
    Talk to you here and there!:smokin

    Why don't you stop by on your way back? It's probably only a few short hours out of your way.:)

    Oy! It's 6:45 am and we have made the executive decision to wimp out on the road trip!
    There's a storm a' brewing ma :eek: We would be driving through lake effect snow, sub zero wind chills, snow, sleet and freezing rain on down through the mountains and lower lands of West Virginia, North Carolina and the weather in Florida is going to be semi hot and rainy which means ecchhh.....
    Mama gonna have ta wait till April I'm afraid :(
    Jr. is pissed because he got up early, took a shower and now he can't go back to sleep:D so he should be miserable most of the day:cry:
    Around here it's going to be in the midteens with wind in the 12-18 mph range so the wind chills are supposed to be between 0º F. & -8º F. today and tomorrow hooray!:confused: I guess this makes up for the mild January.
    Of course this also means we won't be going through Pa. and we can't buy a Powerball ticket! The jackpot is up to $365,000,000 give or take a couple o' mil. Imagine what I could do with all that moolah:bounce: :beer: :bounce: :beer: :bounce: :beer: :smokin :crazy:
    Well maybe we'll take a drive down to Pa. anyway.
    :)

    Chrose, if you were to win, I would immediately notify you!!!:smokin
    by way of postcard form Italy:crazy:
    We had a record high of 86 here Thurs. Put all the yard furniture out by the pool...Last night we had a record low of 29 with freezing rain and sleet.
    I love Texas!:D
    Hey, Wind your way down through Texas in April and visit, our sons are the same age are'nt they? It's probably onky a few days out of the way.
    Happy you decided not to mess with the weather.
    pan
    BTW if your up I'll pick you up a ticket and send you you numbers. I'm here for another hour. It's now 7:45 my time
    ps they will be machine picks, I would not take the responsibility of numbers because I send my driver for them.

    Wanda and I only play powerball when it is over $100 million. Who needs a paltry $20 million anyway?:rolleyes: Needless to say, I have my tickets for tonight's drawing!

    We just got our first storm of the season, in fact biggest storm we've had in a few years. Got about 12" and last night it dropped to -17, before wind chill. Florida is looking pretty good right now!

    Well we're back from the Florida substitute (shopping) picked up a couple of essentials from the store, bought a small area rug for the living room, coffee and danish from Panera's and bought 4 tickets for the NY Lotto for a measly $9 mil. (hardly worth the $2 it cost me :lol: ) and the Mega Bucks which is up to $119 mil. (worth the $2:cool: )
    So as I said in a previous post, if I win it's party time baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:beer: :beer: :beer:

    OK, with all this lotto talk, I'm thinking I can only win if I'm generous.
    I have a ticket for our mega jackpot going off Tuesday Feb 21, 2006
    All who have posted to this thread, chrose,cakerookie,momoreg,panini,Jim,Pete,cape chef, and the next poster besides the mentioned will split the winnings of the jackpot. We all promise to behave and pay all our taxes:D and do the legal thing.
    I took the cash option. The est. pot will be minimum 170 mil. So I guess we might net 40-50? I did not play the magaplier because I have no idea what the devil it is. So eight is the number. maybe 5 mil a piece I guess. Do not hold me to any numbers only to the split.
    This is the Texas lotto
    MEGA
    BALL
    a. 02 09 17 39 42 08
    b. 18 20 36 42 55 21
    c. 07 24 29 52 53 18
    d. 12 20 35 45 47 31
    e. 15 18 25 33 34 10
    these were copied to the best of my abilities(without my glasses) I have checked them twice. I've taped the tic to my monitor. If there is any dispute we will refer back to the ticket and not the board.
    GOOD LUCK!!! remember Chrose throws the party, I'll pick up the travel.

    coffee and danish from Panera's...wow you've got a Panera's by you? That's a STL company, my assitant at the market a couple of years ago is married to the head R & D for St. Louis Bread Co. (aka Panera). He's a hoot! get's his inspiration from walking through grocery stores, especially the cereal isle.
    He had no formal training, started working for them when it was 1 store....was doing development at his kitchen table. Did not make the move when headqtrs went east a couple of years ago. He's into cars in a major kinda way. Developed the whole artisan bread line. Mike Marino....
    have not talked to them in a while, they have 2 boys under 2 years old keeping them pretty busy. world gets smaller and smaller.....
