Lottery Winner Eddie Nabors

There are several big lottery winners in Georgia. Lottery prizes changed their life, and almost every winner shared their success stories. One of the biggest lottery winners is Ed Nabors. He won and claimed $390 million as a co-winner with his sister Becky Dunlap, and brother-in-law David Dunlap. The winning numbers were announced in New York City’s Times Square.

Eddie Nabors is a 52 years old truck driver from Georgia. He purchased his ticket from a convenience store in Dalton, the same store where he buys his weekly cup of coffee,  near a carpet mill run by his employer, Mohawk Industries. He claimed half of the record $390 million Mega Millions jackpot oi March 2007.

After winning the prize, he was feeling numb. Probably you would be as well after winning $116.5 million. He said he didn’t know he had won until 9 a.m. which is about 10 hours after the numbers were announced. Later his co-workers told him that someone bought the winning ticket in Dalton.

When his mother Doris Nabors came to know about the lottery prize, she explained that Eddie was shaking very hard. He was shaking so much that he was sent home from work. The shock extended to the closest members in the family.

Among two available options Mr Nabors went with the cash lump-sum. This amounted to almost 117 million dollars. Eddie Nabors received more than $80 million after cutting of the taxes. He said he choses a cash lump-sum option because he wanted to buy a home for his daughter. The winning numbers were 16-22-29-39-42, with the Mega Ball 20. The odds of hitting the winning combination was 1 in 176 million.

Eddie loves fishing. After the jackpot triump he will spend more time on 52, of Rocky Face, Ga., about 90 miles north of Atlanta. He was going to do a lot of fishing he told the newspapers.

Another pair of great winners of the big lottery prize 6th of March was the couple Elaine and Harold Messner. They felt very fortunate. They looked upon their lottery jackpot winnings as a blessing.

Harold Messner was 57 years old when he won the Jackpot. He worked as a general contractor. He purchased his winning ticket at a liquor store in Cape May County near his residence. Mr Messner said that he randomly picked the tickets and when the results were presented he couldn’t sleep. He had to double-check his ticket again and again. Finally he called his wife with the good news. Elaine and Harold also received almost 117 million dollars before taxes just like Eddie Nabors. It was a split pot.

The couple said they would spend a portion of the prize on their retirement. 16-22-29-39-42, with the Mega Ball 20 thus created two big winners.

If you are one of those who think lottery is a scam or fraud, then you must be mistaken because a lot of people in the world have seen their lives changed for the better after winning a multi-million dollar lottery.

On 6th of April 2011, two men from Jeffersonville in Indiana won the Powerball lottery jackpot of $221,700,000. It was a life changing experience for both of them, they couldn’t believe what happened. These are two friends who work together as welders in the same company for a period of eight years. They only came up with the idea of playing lottery three years before they won the jackpot prize of a lifetime.



Darin Fox is a 32-year old man from Clarksville, single and stays in his parent’s house while Todd Reardon is a 38-year old man from Jeffersonville, married to tiffany for 12 years and the pair has produced an 11- year old son. Fox has been looking to secure a good job that pays well so that he could move out of his parent’s house, he found a job in the same company where Todd was working as a welder and since then the two have became close friends.  At work, they were practically doing everything together. There was no Todd without Fox and no Fox without Todd.

During the summer breaks, Todd and Fox go out on hunting sessions in the forest as a form of exercise. Fox’s mom is always against it because she fears for her son who is yet to marry and bore her a grandchild but he didn’t listen but continued this hunt with his friend.   It was until 2008 that the thought of trying out lotteries came to the minds of Todd and Fox. The pair decided to invest their money in playing Powerball lottery and never gave up even if they kept on losing. They have always dreamed that one day they will win millions from the lottery and change their lives forever and their prayers came to pass in 2011.

On that faithful day, Fox set out to do usual and continue with their plan of buying four Hoosier lotto tickets. But on getting to circle k convenience store, he discovered something else. He found out that the Powerball draw for that night was worth over $200 million, then he decided to purchase two quick picks Powerball tickets as well as two quick picks Hoosier lotto tickets the same day and this was the moment that transformed the lives of Todd and Fox.

The next morning, Fox was preparing to do his daily duties and go to work before deciding to check the tickets he purchased last night on the internet. Behold, it was his numbers that popped up as the Powerball results, the numbers were 10-18-41-55-56 and Powerball 15. He was so shocked he continued checking the numbers again and also had a heart attack. His parents were ready to call emergency services (911) because their son was not breathing. He immediately called Todd and gave him the news but Todd didn’t believe and drove to Fox’s house to see for himself.



They didn’t go to claim the money until they were accompanied by friends, family, lawyers and accountants. They were offered an option of receiving $221.7 million as a 30 year annuity or in a lump sum of $111.7 million (before taxes).  They opted to take the current cash value and each received $40 million ($40,002,146.87) after taxes. To the men, this was the best for them and on that day henceforth, they considered themselves retired welders.

Darin was happy he could now buy his parents a house and get one of his one. He also planned on buying his mom a convertible and a truck for himself. On the other hand, Todd wants to buy his wife a new Jeep Wrangler Black Ops special edition and also a mountain bike for his son. The pair agreed on purchasing land where they will be able to continue their hunting quests together with Todd’s son. Since then, the lives of Todd and Fox changed for good.

What you should know about the Lottery

Things about the lottery you probably should know about

Every one of us tries to win the lottery to change a life. There are several factors which impact the processes of winning the lotteries. There are a lot of essential things about the lottery which you should know to do your best. These things will allow you to know everything about the circumstances of different types of lottery. This will be enough to increase your winning chances and will enable you to understand the process in the best way.

A Lottery Win Isn’t Always a Win

You should know that if you have all the correct numbers to win the lottery, it does not necessarily mean that you have won it. There are some things which you should take care. First of all, you need to present the lottery ticket to confirm your identity and ensure others you are the winner.

There are possibilities you lose the lottery ticket, and then you will also lose all the cash. So, the best solution is to sign at the back of the ticket. You can consider your correct numbers lottery ticket as a cash, and there is a need to sign at the back side. You should sign at the back as it will refer all the cash to your name.

The Odds of Hitting the Jackpot

The most important thing to win the lottery is hope. If you don’t have an interest and there is no hope, then you cannot win any prize. The odds of winning a jackpot is less, but you can try your luck at any stage of your life.

Another thing to make a better decision is that if you try for multi-state lottery jackpot, then the possibilities of your win are less as compared to trying for single state jackpot. Thus, you can consider buying many tickets and work for different lottery jackpots at a different time.

Quick Pick vs. Random Numbers Generator

The starting of the lottery process is to choose a number. There are two favorite ways to pick the lottery numbers. You can trust your luck and pick the numbers which come in your mind. On the other hand, you can use a random numbers generator machine which can give you numbers.

Most of the lottery winners used the machines to make and pick the random number tickets. Statistically, choosing the random numbers is better than go with your own choice. However, the decision is always yours, and there is no way to know the exact winning numbers yourself.

Paying Taxes on Winnings

If you want to win bog lottery cash, you should be ready for the taxes. According to law, lottery wins greater than $600.01 have to bear federal withholding tax. Whenever you win the bigger prize, 25% of your total winning prize is withheld from the initial award.

You need to know the tax proportions and other things to calculate the winning amount which you win receive after deducting of all taxes. Once you win the big lottery cash, you are just a new member in the high tax bracket.


Number 11 – and number 33

Now let’s leave the Rosicrucian park in San José and head over to United Kingdoms were several orders of high importance is located. We will take a look ta number 11 again and how this number keeps coming up sharing big money all over the world. This time it took 26 million pounds and shared them among three lucky winners. Apart from the number 11 the numbers were: 3, 5, 25, 27 and 45. Among those numbers as we know the Pikenumber is 27 and Albert Pike was a famous freemason. The number 27 also has its deeproots in the Swedish Royal house. Especially it’s important for the future Queen Victoria. There were also some interesting Thunderball numbers: 13 and 16 where of course number 13 is the number of the Serpent Bearer and possibly the dwarfplanet Eris or even The Goblin.

On Birmingham Live it is claimed that Draw Machine Lancelot was used. However, if this story really relates to King Arthur and Merlin has to be questioned.

A lucky person from the middle of Europe won 144 million pounds in the region of Basel. Apart from 7 and 17 and 37 (Triple 7) the fantastic number 11 showed up as the lucky star.
A very interesting line of numbers including 26, 27, 46 and 47 led to two winners of 33 million pounds each. 33 of course is the number of the highest degree of freemasonry known to man. This win hit the news 9th and 10th January of 2016.

According to my websearch the names of the winners of the 33 million pounds should be David and Carol Martin.

Another big winner from 2004 (14th of July) was Iris Jeffrey who got her check from the Bank of Scotland.

You should always play responsibly, but you should also play to win. Number 11 and 13 are great powerballs to combine with numbers like the freemason number 33. If you feel that the numbers are coming up soon, even or within 10 drawings activate your game now and don’t miss out on the money. While Lottery Betting has it’s advantages a real coupon is the best way to go.

The Morris Couple Won A $228.9 Million Jackpot

On the 11th of August 2011, another shocking Powerball victory hits the city of Burnsville, Minnesota. The winners, Thomas and Kathleen Morris who were both 61 years of age won a $228.9 million Powerball jackpot. The story of this couple winning the lottery was foreseen by Thomas cause he was always so sure that he was going to win the lottery on day. The Morris couple who had two grown children now had a grandchild a few days before the victory, guess the child brought some heavenly blessings along while coming.

The morning before the purchase of the winning ticket, Morris and his wife went to have a chat with their financial planner and realized that retirement may not come as soon as they wished. Things were looking bad and Thomas believed that the only way to get retired was to win the lottery, then his wife encouraged him to get some tickets. On the 10th of august, Thomas decided to buy five tickets from the Super America store in Lakeville on 16161 Cedar Avenue because the people that worked in the store were very nice to him. Tom who usually buys a maximum of three ticket every week now decided to buy five because he didn’t have $3 in his pocket. He took his tickets and then drove to Indiana for a business trip as a sales engineer.

When Thomas got home, however, good fortune was only moments away. he heard over the radio that there was a winner from Dakota County and then decide to check his tickets. It turned out that it was the fourth ticket which he usually doesn’t buy that was the lucky win. The numbers that changed their lives were 11, 18, 36, 41, 46, and the Powerball, 38. The 38 number the amount of years these two have been married.

The couple came forward to claim their prize and had two months to decide whether they want to take the cash option of $123 million which would amount to $84 million after taxes or an annual payment of $7.5 million for duration of 30 years. This was recorded the largest Powerball jackpot since Powerball began in 1992.

The couple ended up choosing the cash out option of $84 million after taxes. The Super America store in Lakeville received a reward of $50,000 for selling the winning ticket. The couples needed financial advice on how the money should be spent and so donate some of it to charities and also part of it was for the family.

This win was formed by a triple 11. A few of the other numbers are highly significant as well for the Vindoria Chronicles. Especially for the House of the Order and the Trollmother.

Number 11 Strikes again – Twice

A Single Mother From North Carolina Wins The Prize

Marie Holmes was a Powerball Mega-million jackpot winner who stole the prize on the 11th of February, 2015.

She was a 27 year old single mother with four children who was living in a mobile home in Shallotte, North Carolina. The father of her children, Lamar McDow, was with her for two years because he was constantly involved in crimes and was always in and out of prison for this. She was a tough mom who really struggling day and night to provide for her kids. Marie was also working at Walmart and had some other side jobs she was doing too to be able provide well for her kids.

The Powerball winner from Shallotte in 2015 purchased the winning ticket with the lucky numbers: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball 19 from a local convenient store in her hometown. As the winner she has the maximum of 5 months to claim her prize. Marie had to appear publicly despite knowing that the exposure to the media might upturn and disrupt her life but there in the North Carolina, winners are publicly exposed alongside with their details and the total sum of money that was won. When she discovered that she was the won holding the mega-million ticket the young lady of 27 nearly had a heart attack. If you’d win something this big wouldn’t you have an attack? But she never knew that winning something big could also bring some series of setbacks alongside.



When Marie went to claim her prize it came with two options, it was either she received installments of her $188 million over a period of 30 years or she could take a onetime payment of $127 million after tax. Like many of us would, she chose the option of taking $127 million with the mindset that she could make investments that generate more profit over the 30 years period. Marie planned on doing something really big with her prize but the saying that goes “More Money, More Problems” caught up with her.

Maries fell into dispute with her friend and pastor, Kelvin Mathews. This man was like a father figure to her. He gave her support and encouragement. Marie was known in the community to be very religious and a faithful churchgoer. But problems arose when Marie had promised the church and the community a donation of 10% of her winnings and couldn’t fulfill it. She made a donation of $680,000 but Pastor Kelvin Mathews saw that as an insult after knowing she had just won $127 million. He sued Marie, stating that she had verbally pledge $10 million to the church and he also added that he had gone ahead and made some financial investments based on her statement. Marie later came through on her word and invested the $10 million into her charitable organization called The Marie Holmes Foundation. Obviously this organization can have profound effect on the society in the long run. In Swedish Crowns donated is over 80 million this is more than 300 low paid workers make in a year.



The Powerball winner Marie Holmes life did turn a new leaf as she became a new money millionaire.  Her life after the win came with a lot of drama attached to it. She encountered many problems till the extent that her family turned against her and her boyfriend that she spent so much of her wealth on was driven back to jail.

Marie Holmes is interesting on several levels. First of all – there is a double Eleven in play her. She won the price in the tropical sign of the Waterbearer Aquarius. The esoteric tradition is not about the actual stars, but the theory of the cycles; still the star ruling the win is the luckiest of the lucky: Sadalsuud. No doubt Djwhal Khul initiated 1919 was the master behind the powerball. Yet again the Snakebearer number 13 is involved in this big win as well as 39 the number of the astral realm of Oz.


The numbers 188 is yet again from a numberplate on a car I have driven so the butterfly is clearly at work here. The mantra used for a 188 million dollar win is the criminal sphere of Uggu Ozzh Kuud so the criminal aspect of this big win was highly expected. Uggu Ozzh Kuud is also involved in the criminal aspect of Uranus – like Somali pirates and people on the wrong side of the law. The number 127 is highly related to the lake of King Ring as well the Royal House of Sweden and the Goetic dog of Glasya-Labolas. When Gothenburg is involved in a big win in America generally the number 11 shows up. When fifth initiated Djwhal Khul is involved number 19 always shows up. These are the ways of the Butterfly.


The asteroid Holmes has also been invoked by a secret circle in Gothenburg, and the big win might be related to this ritual. Especially since the ritual was performed by the astral form of the Grand Tulku of Sweden.  Never underestimate 11, 39 and 19. These three numbers are very powerful. Leave them out on your own peril. Love the numbers and they will serve you well.

What the blog Vindoria isn’t about…


Dear BigBrain, my Vindoria blog is not about Santa Barbara or bachelorette or porter comments or club_photos. It’s not about Spaghetti strap tops, Guerilla Garding, fashion shows, street style or wine from Barbara. It’s not about transcience or slack free loads or Kim Kardashian or Fun Cooking Sister or mattresses. It’s not about pink business cards, enangeliums, educations for clever people, the sterling standard or pink shorts. It’s not about how to send emails from localhosts in php using php mailers nor about Gel Protection, Livingroom Camping or students or architecture. The vindoria blog is not about windoria, vindooria, windooria, shindoria, flindoria, prindoria, sindoria, pandoria, swindoria, swandoria, Swindon or Swindonoria. However, I do get all my ideas from this little old woman in Swindon. So I am grateful to her, even though I suspect that Agness Matiss is only a pseudonym for Alice in Wonderland. And when it comes to cats, I prefer Russian Blues or Belgian Blues, so sorry no Chesire cat for me. However I do realise dear search engines that there are several Vindorias out there. I do appreciate that you see the distinction between Vindoria and Victoria too and hopefully my small but growing audience will be HUGE LOTTERY JACKPOT WINNERS and then it’s time for Vindoria to go WINDORIA or possibly Windooooria! Thanks all, blessed be and now it’s time to acknowledge the global brain as well as the power of the Multiverse.

Ignore the Victorias they can’t make you rich. Go for Vindoria instead, winning the lottery feels good deep down inside.


An 84 Year Old Woman Won The Mega-Million Jackpot

On the day May 18th 2013, a lady named Gloria C. Mackenzie who won a mega million Powerball lottery jackpot came forward to claim her prize. This lady had us guessing for two weeks before stepping forward to claim the prize. Mrs. Gloria Mackenzie was 84 years old at the time. She probably needed a few days to get over the shock of winning the mega prize. The old woman from Zephyrhills, Florida and a town “where everyone know everyone else”; this made it more mysterious as the person was about to be the richest in the town. Zephyrhills is known for its vibrant elderly community and had a number of mobile home parks for those more advanced in years and it was statistically more likely that the Powerball lotto winner would be amongst this section of the population. Rumors abounded before Gloria collected her win: that someone had put the ticket in the wash and destroyed the lottery ticket, or lost it, or it was never going to be claimed. This is Powerball at it’s finest. Rumors, fantasies, speculations and the low odds of winning all boiled into a witches cauldron.

Surprisingly to the whole community it was Gloria who walked into the Florida State lottery with her son, a family friend and a financial advisor to validate the winning of the Powerball mega-ticket. It was told that Gloria at that point was battling so really serious health issues and also was showing some symptoms of Alzheimer’s due to her old age. Her win was a great win not only for Florida, but for the elderly community and possibly for all people with emerging dementia. Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease that deserves our intention – and millions of dollars in research as well.

On the day Gloria bought the ticket there was a woman named Mindy Crandall who was also trying to purchase a Powerball ticket. She let Gloria move into her front because she was trying to check up on her son. She was one step away from the mega million prize but she let Gloria step into her way. When Mindy was interviewed by some reporters, her 10 year old daughter gave them the most shocking response. She said “it’s better to be polite than to be rich”. So there would have been another winner instead of Gloria. Gloria said “the day I bought this ticket I was lucky to meet a kind hearted player who was kind enough to let me go ahead of her in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket”. The truth is we don’t know if Mindy Crandall really would have won due to the algorithms. It’s more likely that neither would have won if Mindy didn’t let Gloria go ahead before her. Still, Crandalls random act of kindness was involved.

The jackpot-winning POWERBALL ticket was purchased at Publix, which was located at 7838 Gall Boulevard, Zephyrhills, Florida. The winning numbers that changed Gloria’s life and kept the whole town at pause were 10, 13, 14, 22, and 52, with a Powerball of 11, and the odds of matching them in the draw were $175 million to 1. Black Tram 11 really showed people in Gothenburg what is was made of. Without the Gothenburg Tram … well you never know do you. Congratulations powerball 11. The cluster of close balls: 10, 11, 13, 14 is also worth noting. As is 22 that is a double 11 and of course number 13 of the Ophiuchus – the serpent bearer. 

Gloria the great chose to take a lump sum. This lump sum was almost 280 million dollars after taxes. (278 million dollars, that’s a hefty Powerball jackpot indeed. The shop that sold her the ticket got a bonus of $85,000 and about $54 million went into the Florida’s Educational Enhancement Trust Fund.

The story about Gloria is amazing and the Powerball 11 is deeply worth our respect. The act of humanism in this ball, the associations to Uranus and the new age of the waterbearer is significant.
