The search is on. You know you are digging through your pockets right now. I'm pulling the laundry apart as we speak.

I can't even fathom having a winning ticket and not knowing. I actually read over the numbers on my lottery tickets countless times, willing them to match. I also can't fathom buying tickets for the Powerball, and not being totally on top of it. Unless you are cagey and you want to wait for the very last moment to come forward and claim your prize.

According to the latest news from the Connecticut Lottery, there are three $1-million dollar winners, one $2-million dollar winner, and one $25,000 a year for life winner hanging out there unclaimed. You can check the numbers at CTLottery.org, and you can call me at 203-775-9595 if you want to be my new best friend! After you claim your prize that is.
