I gave up the National Lottery some time ago (and suffered no withdrawal symptoms) and went to the Air Ambulance lottery instead (maximum prize £25k)
Had an email from them today, telling members that our lottery subscriptions had helped pay for a new helicopter.
That gives me a nice warm feeling.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.
When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
