Thanks Helm, rikfuzz and Grimsane.  Am looking into those driving courses where you can do it all in one week or so.

You see, I would be miserable if I was only one number from a Jackpot. Perspective.

I'm really not.  It's a game of luck so there's no point telling myself "oh I should have picked thaat number as my sixth or bonus ball".  Why dwell on the numbers I didn't manage to guess?  I got 5 of them right and that's given me a hell of a lot more money than I had before and is a huge help in my current situation.  Most weeks I'd be lucky to get the 10 for getting 3 of them and instead of I'm one of the 282 people in the UK who's got 1412 more pounds than I had the day before so I'm really pleased with my winnings and hey, I can always play again.  :)

I would be too if it meant getting nothing,. But 1400 pounds out of the blue? Pretty ace.

I was just going to ask the same thing, Friend--I had noticed the banner was gone.

Awesome; you're on a roll, Carnivac!  :D
