The end.

Dear lovely and loyal supporter,

I am so sorry to write this but after much soul-searching I have decided to close the Free Lucky Day Lottery. I am afraid a change in personal circumstances means I no longer have the time to invest in the website so I have had to make the very difficult decision to close the free lottery.

I want to thank you sincerely for visiting my website, for playing the free lottery and helping me raise money for charity through the ad revenue on the website. I have met some lovely people through running the website - one of whom is a wonderfully kind lady who runs the FREE BIRTHDATE LOTTERY - please do sign up and help this free lottery grow!

Thank you sincerely for all your support and I really do wish you all a lucky day!

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.

Enemies are so stimulating.

Never complain. Never explain.

Life is hard. After all, it kills you.

If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.

Have a wonderful day!

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

I don't do drugs. I am drugs.

There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad.

Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.

There are some days when I think I'm going to die from an overdose of satisfaction.

Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.

Have a totally surreal but lucky day my friend!

The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.

The higher up you go, the more mistakes you are allowed. Right at the top, if you make enough of them, it's considered to be your style.

I just put my feet in the air and move them around.

Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you've got to start young.

Have a magical day my friend!

The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?

I just wish the world was twice as big and half of it was still unexplored.

An understanding of the natural world and what's in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfilment.

People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure.

Have a wonderfully lucky day my friend.

The human race should just slow down and think about what it is doing.

Have a wonderful day!

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

Have a Happy Go-Lucky day!
