Last night we celebrated the new year with friends at a favorite restaurant and we gave everyone a lottery ticket to the Mega Million multi state lottery and each person had to say what the first things that they would do with the estimated jackpot of $242 Million. Interestingly enough, on the top of most lists was to pay off their mortgage and the mortgages of family and friends. There were foundations to start....charities to benefit....a little bling here...vacation there....Checking our numbers this morning....close but not matching....and have not heard from any of the other guests to learn if we need not pay our mortgage this month.....guess not....now the jackpot is projected to go to $290 million with no one winning the big prize.
As we begin the new year with a great deal of positivism....(is that a word ?) we raise our glasses (we do have purple ones...!) toast all of you in Active Rain....our family, friends, the many people past and present who have honored us with their business...in many ways, we feel we have won the lottery...with the love, support and friendship of all of you.
Our Best Wishes for a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous 2011 !
