Did anyone happen to listen to NPR today? They did a discussion on luck. There was a woman who called in and said she won California lottery by deciding that day she would do it. How come that doesn't work for me!!!!:laugh:

Talking about your California Lottery Woman. I honestly think people are just lucky. I know a few people that have lucky things happen to them very darn day - even if I don't think they deserve it. And I know tons of people that no matter what they do, how good they are, they are always at the wrong place at the wrong time. It is like a cruel joke....lol.
As for the california lottery, their are tons of reports of people who have won various jackpots 2 and 3 times. I even ran into a guy in Las Vegas gambling who had one the mega jackpot TWICE in 10 years! Now if that isn't pure luck, I don't know what is.
Maybe I need to rub up against those people so that luck will rub off on me...

I will have to give that a try. I will admit I was so determined to be a match to donate a kidney to my husband, I think I almost willed it to match and pass all the tests. We were a great match--the doctors said we were a better match than most bother and sisters. It just might work when it is important enough!:grin5:
