  2. I was gonna sent you an email yesterday to ask Where are tho?
    Glad to see you are back!!

  3. Where can I sign up? Do you mind forwarding that e-mail to me?

  4. So, I spend my dollar at the lottery, a 120 million to one shot, and what do I get for my buck?
    The idea that one day they may just pick my number, and boy oh boy do I dream about spending it!
    It's the funnest part!
    (some would say, don't buy the ticket, just dream the dream...but. That would mean it's ONLY a dream.)

    Hope you enjoyed spending your trillions!
