and what did you win. I am always getting emails that are wanting me to do sweepstakes and I never have. I have never won anything before. I am not too lucky when it comes to stuff like that . We use to go to bingo when I was a kid evey friday night and I never once bingoed and i am not lucky with lottery tickets either.

I don't play the lottery any more as I think its a waste of money. I do have premium bonds as my first daughter got some as a gift so I had to buy some for my other daughter as well. they have never won though. I have some shares, which I think is a bit of a gamble but more likely to get a profit than sweepstakes and lotteries. I also think that anyones online that ask you for your bank account details must be a scam.

Yes, I enter sweepstakes and I have won lots and lots of stuff. I don't think it is as much about luck as it is about HARD work.

Free Money, No - Free money? No just a way to take your money.
No I do not enter sweepstakes, but I am always called up saying I won them. It is soo funny how they use that ploy to either attain your business or you money. I know that my mom "won" a SUV and see went through the whole thing, just to see because she was so curious to see what they would have her do. It was even from our church raffle. So funny. In the end you had to buy 20 acres of land in order to have the "free" SUV, and since we did not have the money there was no "free" SUV. They just like to suck you in and then take you for all you have.

We have won on the State lottery a couple of times. Nothing big just 50 bucks or so and when we did win it was sorely needed for a bill. We just don't spend alot and normally play when the pot get big. Just don't bank on it. Usually we just win another ticket or the 2 dollars. Used to play bingo at the fish fries growing up. Was a social event and the food was so good. Usually won just enough to keep playing. Which is what I wanted anyway. Sure miss those ladies that could do like 10 cards and the ink dabbers and lucky charms, smoking like chimneys. Sticky fun.
