That's why I do quick picks.

I wonder if anyone has ever determined if quick pick numbers are pulled as often as chosen numbers? Or less or more than?

I do quick pick because I can never make up my mind on choosing numbers.

I know of a clerk who picked the numbers for some drunkard and he won! I'm sure she was very happy about it...

I believe a majority of the pretty decent sized jackpots were won by quickpicks.

Well today is Saturday, I decided to get up early and go for a walk along the beach. For people who are familiar with So Cal area, Long Beach has a bike / walk path that runs for a bout 3-4 miles along the beach. Anyway, I decided to go for a walk. Man, I really can't believe how nice of a morning it has been so far.

The sun was shining down and felt warm against my face. I saw tons of people out early running on the path. The sky was exceptionally clear this morning. I felt like I almost had a spiritual moment, taking in the whole scene filled me with a sense of joy and hope that I haven't felt in some time.

BTW, did I mention it's still january and it felt like 75 degrees at 9 in the morning.

Take that fly over states!! Just kidding.

Chow, it's Sunday morning here in FREEZING upstate NY. I just read your post above. I do not see how anyone in California could ever be sad. It's gotta be the weather here that makes so many of us miserable this time of year. I'm jealous! And cold!!!

LOL, yeah but I bet your houses are cheap. That's the only thing about here that I hate, It's the cost of housing. Everything for that matter is expensive.

I make decent money and I feel like I'm scraping by most of the time.

Hey, there are cheap places... You're welcome to go there! As with anything else you get what you pay for.
