Do you see a pattern?

Year - No. Wins.

1992 - 5
1993 - 88
1994 - 58
1995 - 61
1996 - 56
1997 - 41
1998 - 42
1999 - 32
2000 - 32
2001 - 24
2002 - 31
2003 - 14
2004 - 2

Above is the approximate number of times the Texas lottery has been won each year. 1992 is a given, the lottery had only been running a few months so naturally there will be fewer winners. But on average there are fewer and fewer winners each year. Are fewer people playing or has something changed in the odds of winning? Currently there have only been 2 winners in 4 months for 2004. This just seems odd. What's up?

Cold Knees

Last night I woke up to cold knees. I'm not sure what this means, but it makes sleeping difficult. I think it is the allergy meds, who knows?

Maybe it's my body's way off telling me that a storm is on the way or I need to buy a lottery ticket or maybe little Timmy is stuck down a well.

Happy Day!

Now what to do?

Work? "a little"

Buy wine and port for the weekend? "Duh"

Cut the grass before the rain? "A must"

Happy Cinco de Mayo

The day we commemorate the victory of the Mexicans over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. (I had to look that up.) I am all for any festivity that promotes having a good time. Make those lunch plans early today, if you are eating Mexican.

Flick Your Butt

Okay it's not what you think or maybe it is... I am so tired of being behind - no pun intended - smokers who flick their cigarette butts out the window. Two things: First it's littering and Second it's a fire hazard. I just don't understand why people litter where they live, especially in such a proud state as Texas. I guess everything is bigger here, including our litter.

I don't care if you smoke, it's your body. But - and there is always a big but - be responsible and keep Texas or where ever you live clean.

"Each year more than 1 billion pieces of litter will accumulate on Texas highways. Of those, 13 percent are cigarette butts. That means 130 million butts will be tossed out in Texas alone this year."
