And now our Powerball dreaming is over. There is one lucky ticket for the $1.326 billion dollar jackpot. The jackpot now drops back to $20 million dollars.

It is fun to think about winning. I love dreaming about having unlimited wealth and all that comes with that. It would be fun to be able to buy vacation homes and luxury cars. But it would also be fun to share the wealth with friends and families and charity organizations.
