LOL PKA - this was at a yearly awards banquet for arts leaders and companies that support them - there's always a raucous and competitive trivia game based on NH facts and figures and the NH arts community -- I've twice been the grand prize winner in the past 10 years -- the first time I won Southwest airplane tickets but I gave them away to someone who really needed them more than me -- but the getaway up north heck yeah I took that! LOL

I won a two night stay at a luxury resort int he Mountains via my trivia prowess... I love that it won it for being smart not just being lucky LOL>>

I need to go to your trivias, we have won a few but mostly you just receive your fee back, but still...nice to win, I know what you mean.

1. No,

2. My husband won a Kindle Fire in one of those business card pull things at a trade show. I had some big poker tournament payouts in my day, but I prefer to think that I earned them.

3. No breakfast yet.

1. Do you know anyone who has won the lotto (million dollars or more)?  My husband's aunt who lives abroad won the lottery in the 70s or 80s.  I don't know the exact amount, but it was a very nice chunk of change.

2. What is the most money or biggest thing you have ever won?  Probably a door prize at a shower or something.  I don't enter very many contests.

3. What's for breakfast?  I had a banana, an blood orange Chobani greek yogurt, and a granola bar.

Yes.  A family whose kids I knew in school.

2. What is the most money or biggest thing you have ever won?

Can't think of anything.  My brother is the lucky one in our family.

3. What's for breakfast?

Water.  And it's even staying down nicely.  Yeah...it was one of those weekends.

YES!  fascinating documentary - although I found the woman more endearing than I expected to - that's not the timeshare network my wife ownsin - she's in the other big one- but watching the sales techniques was a bit stomach churning.   While I love that we scored this awesome vacation opportunity for so little it did make me feel weird to know that we were buying someone's misfortune basically.  I mean I enjoy what we have and i'm lucky that my wife really udnerstands and uses the system well.. but I can't imagine buying one for $25-or $35 grand you know?   But for our $500 a year maitenance fee we've been able to have some swell trips.  One coming up this summer to Hilton Head -- the girl and her bestfriend (who we're taking with us) will bascially have their own wing of the condo...

<p>appropos of Time shares-- my wife owns one that she scored on ebay for $200 about 5 years ago -- it's amazing how many people spend THOUSANDS and then can't keep them up and unload them for peanuts... it was a great score for us as we've been able to vacation every year just for the yearly mainteance fee and it gives us room to spread out so the girl always hs her own bedroom and bathroom and having the full kitchen means we save on meals -- but you are smart to never ever ever take those tours... they are horrible!   But I sure am enjoying being able to use the one we have -- the ones we stayedat in Florida are bigger than the condo we live in LOL..</p>

Did you see the documentary about the Timeshare King ~ Queen of Versailles?  It's repeating on Bravo (maybe still on Netflix) but just a great stroke of luck concerning the timing of filming.

1. No.  2. I never won anything.  3. Granola cereal with cranberries, blueberries.  It wasn't enough as I've just gotten home from the gym and have jelly legs.  I'll make up for it at lunch. ;)
