Day 1122 - In the News

Wow, it's been a rough 24 hours for those on the east coast of the USA 

Hurricane Sandy - 
I am just pleased to hear that my friends in Pennsylvania are all safe and there has been only minimal damage to their surrounds.  Everywhere you look there are photos of the devastation in other areas of the east coast.  There have been deaths (the count is currently at 38), but given the severity of the frankenstorm, I'd say the deaths are slight under the circumstances.

I don't want to sound un-Christian, but when I read the news on line this morning it wasn't Hurricane Sandy that actually captured my attention.

It was the fact that nobody won the lotto last night and now it has jack-potted to $100 million.  As I said, I don't want to sound un-Christian but that's worth a ticket, don't you think? It's being drawn next Tuesday and I plan to be in the running. It could well be the best Melbourne Cup day yet!

  1. There are some great images of Sandy on I am also grateful that my friends are all safe as well..

    The problem I have with the OzLotto thing is, next Monday I fly out to Vietnam, so I will miss both the Melbourne Cup AND the next draw!!! I will get my ticket on Sunday, and place my bets as well...

    Mines up as well at AussiePomm - A night at Harry's!!!!

    Have a great day!!


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
