In these highly charged political days, there's one thing we can all agree on, and that's the idea that an extra $400 million would sure come in handy. So, every BB should do his or her patriotic and non-political duty, regardless of race, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, favorite sports team, or political affiliation, and go out and buy some Mega Millions tickets.

You'll thank me when you win, and I'll thank you next year come bonus time.

Shoot! That means that the numbers I bought Sunday didn't win!

I'll try again. I can use the money to travel to Rockies games.

GO ROCKIES!

I was in and out of the SSA office this morning in 12 minutes! I'm buying one of those today!

I don't buy Mega Millions or Powerball tickets unless a jackpot exceeds $500 million. I'll stick to buying Cash Explosion scratchers.

Just thought I would update this to note that nobody has won the Mega Millions, so the jackpot for Friday is currently $548 million (I expect that to go up by the time of the drawing). For those who aren't quite as adventurous, tonight's Powerball jackpot is $282 million.

Play early; play often. Help my retirement fund.

Nobody won either the Mega Millions or Powerball this weekend, so the Mega Millions for Tuesday stands now at $650 million with that total expected to go up before the drawing. And with Wednesday's Powerball at $350 million, there's over a billion dollars on the table this week.

So support your local programs, support my retirement fund, and win big.

SSS, I don't understand the references to your retirement fund.

I now work for the Georgia Lottery. Every year my annual bonus is determined by how profitable we are.

Would us buying tickets in other states do you any good?

Not directly. Georgia only gets the revenue from Megamillions and Powerball tickets sold in Georgia. But big jackpots tend to induce infrequent players in all states to buy tickets. A rising tide lifts all boats.

Of course, if you'd like to come here to Georgia to play, I'd really appreciate that.

Tonight's Mega Millions jackpot is now $667 million, the biggest in Mega Millions history.

There's still time to get in on the excitement. Plenty of good tickets available.

I'm all set.
