Hey everyone,I wanted too share this article with you about a woman
using a strategy too win the lottery .
Now,This article about this woman using a strategy too win the lottery might not be that
important too anyone .
But,it is something for everyone too think about for everytime they play the lottery .
Because,you never know when they could choose your numbers.

Now this strategy  this woman used too win the the lottery is the
same strategy what
my dad used to use when my dad  used to play the lottery ,
and this one day my dad
forgot too play the lottery,and they had picked my dad's numbers ,and when they had picked my
dad's number,my dad was mad ,because my dad had wished that he would of
played the lottery that day when they had picked his numbers .

Also another thing about this article ,is that the woman is proof that hardwork does
payoff in the end .

Ok,now Here is the article:

PHOENIX (Reuters) – Ending nearly two weeks of suspense, a 64-year-old
substitute teacher and single parent from Arizona claimed a $95.3 million
Powerball jackpot.

Sheila Verke, a Fort Mohave resident, presented the single-winning ticket
to lottery officials in Phoenix on Monday. She opted to take a lump sum
payment of $49.9 million, saying she plans to buy a recreational vehicle
and travel the country.

"It's going to change my life and the life of my children and my
grandchildren and my friends," said Verke, who was joined by friends and
financial advisers at a press conference.

A single parent with two children and five grandchildren, Verke said she used
a well-worn strategy to win the December 1 top prize -- picking a set of
numbers and staying with them each week for years.

Her winning combination of 5-10-11-12-20, with a Powerball number of 2,
is a combination of her birthday and that of her two children, she said.

"I picked these numbers at least 6-and-a-half years ago and stuck with them.
Even if I had to gather quarters, nickels and dimes, I bought them," she told reporters.

Verke bought the winning ticket at a Safeway supermarket in Fort Mohave,
which is about 200 miles northwest of Phoenix.

She is Arizona's third-largest winner of Powerball, a game played by
residents in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Her odds of winning were more than 1 in 195 million.

Good and bad.  It's always good to pick a number higher than 31, since so many people play dates.  Obviously, it doesn't improve your chances of winning, but it does mean that you will likely have fewer people to split the pot with.

Hey  brian1011,I definitely agree with you,and another
thing is that they're
could of been days where that woman quit
using them numbers .But, that woman didn't give up on using them
numbers,and even if she
wouldn't of won,I bet she would still be using them numbers until
she won,and also for me
reading that article about that woman and finding out  her
strategy too win the lottery .
It makes me as
a person want too try out her strategy and hope that
someday I win the lottery too .

I remember when I was younger, a huge disturbance in our family. I can remember some of it, and the rest was filled in by my mom when I was older, after I asked her about what I had remembered. It seemed my grandmother and grandfather used to play the lottery, usually my grandmother bought the tickets each day (I don't think you could buy them a week at a time back then), but sometimes if she didn't have another reason for leaving the house that day my grandfather would buy them. The numbers were always the same from what I was told, it was a combination of my mom, and two uncle's birthdays.

So anyway what I remember was my mom answering the phone and then screaming, jumping around and very excited. I remember things said like "omg!!", "were rich!!" and etc... I remember also my grandmother and 1 uncle coming over to our house, also being very excited. They talked about a lot of things, like were to go, how to spend this huge amount of money and etc... then the next day, I remember my mom, and grandma were not very happy anymore. I didn't learn till I was older that the reason for this was because...

Well the, the winning numbers were the exact same ones my grandmother ALWAYS played, I mean always as in every day, rain or shine, and they were in the correct order and everything. HOWEVER that particular day... my grandfather was supposed to buy the ticket, because my grandmother was cooking a big dinner that night for the whole family (which was something we did a few times a month) so she was staying in to cook and clean for that night. Well my grandfather decided not to buy the ticket, LOL, and no one knew until later that night when he got home. If she had one it would have been millions, because every single number was in the correct order, and it was exact. No one let him live that down for a long time, LOL.

For those of you who like pulling pranks, jokes or etc... you should check this place out, LOL. I love the fake bumper stickers, & the "toilet" monster. I actually ordered the "cockroach in the gum" & used it on my fiance, it was funny when the "bug" jumped out, when he pulled the "piece of gum", LOL, he never jumped back or yelled that fast before! Anyway here is the link to their site if you want to check it out:
