I got onto Twitter only briefly after the Powerball drawing last night. I signed in to see the winning numbers and if anyone had won. WOW!!! An avalanche of tweets were beginning to pour in. I only got in long enough to see that my dreams of the Bahamas and bringing in twenty Tahitian virgins to run my hotels were quickly dashed. The perfect storm was blowing into Twitterville. After briefly clicking onto the hashtags #Powerball and #PowerballWinner, I was blanketed in a big freeze. I guess that Twitter must have been hit with a huge, record-setting amount of activity. I could not get back onto Twitter until I woke up this morning.
I also heard that sometimes you do not really want that big pay day as much as you think. I have loved the last seven years with Barack Obama, but look at what the last seven years have done to Barack. He won the biggest prize seven years ago, but those seven years laid a lot of burdens on our POTUS.
