Surely you’ve heard about the Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot in the news.  Everyone in the media is going gaga over the $330 million jackpot winnings.  People are dreaming big.  Oh there is speculation on the lips of those that are interviewed about what they WILL do with their winnings (they haven’t even bought a ticket yet) and they are fantasizing about how THEIR money will be spent and how they will choose to collect it; either in a lump sum or, through long term annuity payments.

Players are standing in long lines to purchase their tickets.  Even the “odds of winning” aren’t a deterrent to the most loyal of players…the 1 in 176 millionth of a chance of winning.  Really?  I wonder how someone convinces themselves that THEY are the one who WILL win the jackpot with those kind of odds.   If you would like to finish reading this post click here: WriteWhereYouAre

       Girl Power rules on dancing with the stars.  Kristi Yamagucchi and her partner Mark took the championship.  They now have the winning trophy.  But class reins because Jason Taylor and his partner Edyta conducted themselves with style and grace and joy even for Kristi as she won the trophy.

         Tonight, i was correct…it was Adam Carolla’s turn to leave Dancing With The Stars program.  His performance last night was entertaining…but, as in season’s past; whenever a contestant has exhausted his r’epertoire of dancing skills….they bring out the props whilst dancing.  It is a great distraction technique…but you can’t fool the judges who are the experts.  Still, Adam…it was fun and entertaining….we enjoyed you while you were in the competition.

         Adam is a very funny man…and he is light hearted…but, he is not in the same category as some of the other competitors…So, it is goodbye this evening Adam and Julianne. 

          Also in tonight’s program there were a couple of child team dancers who were just wonderful…they were very precise and skilled and it was fun to see them perform with pure joy.  It was very neat to see children so young doing what they saw the adults doing in their performances…i think they will be bringing some competition to the table in a couple of years to the professional dancers on the show!!!  Look out pro’s….here they come.

         The weeks to come will become a bit more difficult to easily pick the winners and the losers.
