Winning the Lottery

I think I may have figured out why I haven't been successful winning the lottery just yet. It's because some guy in Calgary seems to have all the luck - he has won large jackpots FIVE times now! His latest prize is for $17 million dollars but apparently, now that he has won large amounts of money four times in the past five years, they're holding on to these funds while they investigate him a little more closely. His previous winnings include $1 million in 2004, $100,000 in 2006, $1 million and $50,000 in 2008. It seems hard to imagine that one person could be so lucky, considering the odds of winning the lottery are said to be something like 14 million to 1!!

What's this got to do with beading, you might ask? Nothing really, except did you notice the gentleman's last name is Ndabene? Made me think of the Ndebele herringbone beading stitch!!
Can you imagine how many beads you could buy with any one of those lottery prizes?? Or, as this cartoon, suggests, warm chocolate chip cookies - YUM!
