Chuck and Kim are correct.  Sometimes fate plays a big hand in determining who wins and who doesn't.  We're hearing more today about those seven lucky lotto winners from New York who won that 319 million dollar jackpot.  The office workers bought tickets together whenever the jackpot got "big".  Some in the office, who usually played, decided to pass and were left in the cold.  But it was a candy bar and man who decided to cut in line that really sealed the deal for the lucky seven office workers.

When Mike Barth reached for a Snickers bar as he stood at the counter to buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket, someone reached over his shoulder and bought the next ticket.

"I thought about saying something but decided to just let it slide," Barth said about the Quick Pick ticket sold right before the one he purchased at 2:40 p.m. last Friday.

"I bought the next ticket -- the winning ticket!"
